Botanical insecticides presently play only a minor role in insect pest management and crop protection; increasingly stringent regulatory requirements in many jurisdictions have prevented all but a handful of botanical products from reaching the marketplace in North America and Europe in the past 20 years. Nonetheless, the regulatory environment and public health needs are creating opportunities for the use of botanicals in industrialized countries in situations where human and animal health are… 
Botanical Insecticides and their Potential as Anti-Insect/Pests: Are they Successful against Insects and Pests?
TLDR
This chapter looks at the effectiveness of botanicals (neem, garlic, and essential oil) that are used as insecticides and focuses on research carried out on the use of these essential oils as insecticide.
Botanical pesticide production, trade and regulatory mechanisms in sub-Saharan Africa: making a case for plant-based pesticidal products
Pesticides are the major technology used in the management of field and postharvest losses due to pests. There is growing demand for effective alternatives that present low health risks and conserve

Some of the jurisdictions where botanicals are increasingly finding favour, some of the newer botanical insecticides in the plant and animal health arsenal and some ofThe specific sectors whereBotanical Insecticides are most likely to compete effectively with other types of insecticidal product are discussed.
RETRACTED ARTICLE: Botanical Pesticides and Their Mode of Action
TLDR
Different kinds of botanical pesticides came from different recourses are presented and their mode of actions are examined as well as the reasons behind their limited use and the actual crop protection developments involving biopesticides of plant origin for organic or traditional agricultures are examined to keep the authors' environment clean and safer for humankind and animals.
Botanical Insecticides and Their Effects on Insect Biochemistry and Immunity
TLDR
There are many plant extracts widely use against insects but here one of them, Artemisia, is discussed, which is characterized by a rapid knockdown effect, particularly in flying insects, and hyperactivity and convulsions in most insects.
Botanical nematicides in the mediterranean basin
TLDR
The Mediterranean Basin is an area where various soils and climatic conditions allow a vast plant biodiversity providing with chemical botanicals of significant nematicidal potency, and screening naturally occurring compounds in plants can provide with innovative nematode control measures that can be safely used in integrated pest management programs.

TLDR
In the context of agricultural pest management, botanical insecticides are best suited for use in organic food production in industrialized countries but can play a much greater role in the production and postharvest protection of food in developing countries.
