Plant Based Botanical Pesticides
Some plants produce essential oils in specialized gland cells. Examples of essential oils are
- peppermint oil
- clove oil
- citrus oils
- lavender oil
- thyme oil
- rosemary oil.
Recent research shows that these essential oils are effective insecticides. They are sometimes paired with pyrethrin. Also, they exhibit very low toxicity.
Pyrethrins are natural insecticides produced by certain species of the Chrysanthemum plant. Oils from the flowers are extracted and manufactured as solvents or powders. These natural pyrethrins are contact poisons, which quickly attack the nervous system of insects.
