||Recently, biological control is based on the use of secondary molecules of plant extracts. In this work, ethanolic extracts of the plant Ramalina farinacea were tested for their effects on mortality, sexual behavior, and reproduction of the vinegar fly (Drosophila melanogaster). The results showed the presence of the toxic molecules with mortality and incomplete courtship as well as a significant decrease in the number of eggs laid and larvae treated.
