ABSTRACT

This study will test the effect of orange and calamondin on fruit fly. The researcher used these materials because of some proven related studies. The researcher started conducting this research last November 2012. This study used the following materials and specimen: The researcher prepared 500ml hot water, 1 cup of sour orange peels, and 11 pieces of calamondin juiced, blender and 2 slices of jack fruit. The following were grouped into two and labeled each as A and B. The jackfruits were used to test the product. The orange peels and hot water was mixed in the blender then set aside for 12 hours then added the calamondin juice. The extract was sprayed on the jackfruit in group A then set aside for 30 minutes same with group B except that it didn’t receive any extract. The fruit flies that went on each group were counted after 30 minutes.   The process was repeated 3 times to test more if it will be effective. On the results, the researcher found out that there is more fruit flies went over group B than group A. The test used the Analysis of Variance or ANOVA to test if there is a/no significant difference between the 2 groups. Based on the ANOVA table, there is a F-value computed of 8.7 and F-value tabular of 3.68. The computed was higher than the tabular value. The researcher concluded that there is a significant difference in using orange and calamondin to fruit fly and there is a significant differencebetween the product and the commercially used repellent.
