Many plant essential oils show a broad spectrum of activity against pest insects and plant pathogenic fungi ranging from insecticidal, antifeedant, repellent, oviposition deterrent, growth regulatory and antivector activities. These oils also have a long tradition of use in the protection of stored products. Recent investigations indicate that some chemical constituents of these oils interfere with the octopaminergic nervous system in insects. As this target site is not shared with mammals… Expand

Essential oils as green pesticides of stored grain insects
TLDR
These essential oils provide an alternative source of insect control agents because they contain a range of bioactive chemicals, most of which are selective and have little or no harmful effect on the environment and the non-target organisms including human. Expand
Phytochemicals of Plant-Derived Essential Oils
Abstract The illimitable use of synthetic pesticides in agriculture resulted into serious environmental and health problems. In recent years, the application of essential oils and their bioactiveExpand
Plant Essential Oils and Pest Management
Insect pest management in agriculture is facing challenge in several problems of using synthetic pesticides and toxic fumigants including environmental contamination, pesticide resistance, andExpand
Plant Essential Oils from Apiaceae Family as Alternatives to Conventional Insecticides
TLDR
It can be concluded that essential oils and phytochemicals isolated from Apiaceae family may be efficacious and safe replacements for conventional synthetic insecticides. Expand
Botanical insecticide as simple extractives for pest control
TLDR
This paper recommends using botanical insecticides as an integrated insect management program which can greatly reduce the use of synthetic insecticides. Expand
PLANT ESSENTIAL OILS AS MOSQUITO REPELLENT-A REVIEW
TLDR
The present article envisaged to review the reports of essential oils on its effectiveness as repellent and the volatile nature of these components due to their short duration of efficacy. Expand
Essential Oils as Potential Alternative Biocontrol Products against Plant Pathogens and Weeds: A Review
TLDR
The purpose of the present review is to gather and discuss up-to-date biological activities of EO against weeds, plant pathogenic fungi, oomycetes and bacteria, reported in the scientific literature. Expand
Comparing impacts of plant extracts and pure allelochemicals and implications for pest control.
TLDR
It is in developing countries that are rich in endemic plant biodiversity where these pesticides may ultimately have their greatest impact in future integrated pest management (IPM) programmes, given their safety to non-target organisms and the environment. Expand
Insecticides Derived from Natural Products: Diversity and Potential Applications
Termites are one among the pests that pose serious threat to live plants as well as cause harm to plant-based products. The urban environment and agriculture are most threatened by them as they areExpand
Commercial development of plant essential oils and their constituents as active ingredients in bioinsecticides
  • M. Isman
  • Biology
  • Phytochemistry Reviews
  • 2019
TLDR
Commercial development of bioinsecticides based on essential oils can follow several different pathways producing products with active ingredients differing in their genesis, and a mechanism for this action in rosemary oil has recently been demonstrated. Expand

PLANT ESSENTIAL OILS FOR PEST AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT
TLDR
The range of biological activities of essential oils and their constituents is reviewed, their toxicity and proposed mode-of-action in insects; their potential health and environmental impacts as crop protectants; and commercialization of pesticides based on plant essential oils are reviewed. Expand
Chapter 2 Pesticides based on plant essential oils: from traditional practice to commercialization
TLDR
Pesticides based on plant essential oils or their constituents have demonstrated efficacy against a range of stored product pests, domestic pests, blood-feeding pests, and certain soft-bodied agricultural pests as well as against some plant pathogenic fungi responsible for pre- and post-harvest diseases. Expand
A review of botanical phytochemicals with mosquitocidal potential.
TLDR
The current state of knowledge on larvicidal plant species, extraction processes, growth and reproduction inhibiting phytochemicals, botanical ovicides, synergistic, additive and antagonistic joint action effects of mixtures, residual capacity, effects on non-target organisms, resistance, screening methodologies, and discuss promising advances made in phytochemical research are reviewed. Expand
Phytochemicals and Insect Control: An Antifeedant Approach
TLDR
It can be visualized that insect feeding deterrents may be perceived either by stimulation of specialized deterrent receptors or by distortion of the normal function of neurons, which perceive phagostimulating compounds. Expand
Insecticidal and synergistic components isolated from dill plants.
TLDR
Findings in dill plants might point to a potential problem in that food plants may contain substances which by themselves exhibit negligible biological activities, yet which could interact with residues of synthetic insecticides or other synthetic chemicals in the animal body. Expand
Toxicity of Plant Essential Oils to Trialeurodes vaporariorum (Homoptera: Aleyrodidae)
TLDR
Results indicate that the mode of delivery of these essential oils was largely a result of action in the vapor phase, and they merit further study as potential fumigants for T. vaporariorum control. Expand
Reproduction retardant and fumigant properties in essential oils against rice weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in stored wheat
Thirty-one naturally occurring essential oils of plant origin (1,000 ppm in acetone) were studied under laboratory conditions for reproduction retardant, fumigant toxicity, and grain protectionExpand
Acute, sublethal, antifeedant, and synergistic effects of monoterpenoid essential oil compounds on the tobacco cutworm, Spodoptera litura (Lep., Noctuidae).
TLDR
Trans-Anethole acted synergistically with thymol, citronellal, and alpha-terpineol, in terms of both acute toxicity and feeding deterrence, and several complex mixtures were developed and tested as leads for effective control agents. Expand
Control of Aspergillus flavus in maize with plant essential oils and their components.
TLDR
The effects of 11 plant essential oils for maize kernel protection against Aspergillus flavus were studied and no phytotoxic effect on germination and corn growth was detected with any of these oils. Expand
ALLELOCHEMICALS AS BIOPESTICIDES FOR MANAGEMENT OF PLANT-PARASITIC NEMATODES
TLDR
Development of improved production and incorporation methods for rotation and green manure crops, and appropriate application methods for processed allelochemical compounds, will also enhance the efficacy and consistency of these compounds for nematode control. Expand
