Essential Oils in Insect Control

  • Catherine Regnault-RogerEmail author
Reference work entry


The societal claim for a friendly environmental use of pesticides today implicates to promote alternative solutions for a better and relevant using of chemicals. Because they have a broad spectrum of uses, essential oils (EOs) have many industrial applications. They are used now in plant protection and as biocide. They occupy a significant place among insect pest biocontrol agents (BCAs) and represent a consistent part within the market of botanicals used as alternative to chemicals. After phytochemical considerations, this chapter presents the wide range of activities of EOs on insect. Trends and prospects including a discussion about their advantages for an ecological friendly approach but also the factors that impede their commercial development conclude.
