    In bioessays of selective and confinement, environments the effect of neem oil, Azadirachta indica A. Juss., on dry wood termite Incisitermes marginipennis (Latreille) was evaluated by using the following concentrations of 0.5 %, 1.0 %, 1.5 %, 2.0 % and 3.0 % the variables measured were mortality, feeding inhibition and growth regulation through eight weeks. Filter paper was used as a feeding substrate. Both bioessays showed that termites attack was higher on non impregnated paper than the ones impregnated with oil; the mortality recorded by ingestion was attributed to inanition; of the termites on the other hand, there was a significant effect as termite growth regulation at the experimented doses (a= 0.05). In conclusion, filter paper soaked with neem oil on termite I. marginipennis has an inhibitory effect.
