Description of the subject: The study concerns the evaluation of three products, GREEN MUSCLE, Triflumuron and Henna in the fight against locusts. Objectives: Our work is based on the use of three products, Metarhizium anisopliae var acridum, Metch., Triflumuron (TFM) and henna Lawsonia inermis (Lytraceae, Linnaeus, 1753) on L5 larvae of Locusta migratoria (Acrididae, Linnaeus , 1758) applied with two modes of penetration, contact and ingestion. Methods: We tested the effect of these three products on the development and on the hemolymphatic proteins of the L5 larvae, in quantitative and qualitative terms. Results: The results obtained show us that the three products applied with the two treatment modes do not allow the passage of the L5 stage to the imago stage in the treated insects and induced alterations in the hemolymps proteinemia of the L5 of Locusta migratoria. Conclusion: The results allowed us to demonstrate the effectiveness of these three products on L5 larvae of Locusta migratoria.
