Botanical pesticides/insecticides have a proven track record and long use as simple extractives for pest control reviewed, with an emphasis on natural products that have received regulatory approval. Public concern over use of synthetic insecticides is growing. So botanicals are now replacement by synthetics, the new environmental movement has provided a favourable environment for the rebirth of botanical insecticides. Essential oil products are natural compounds with insecticidal properties and their use in crop protection is as old as agricultural practice. essential oils may provide potential alternatives to currently used insect-control agents, however, essential oils have negative side effects, such as toxicity to humans and animals, environmental contamination, and toxicity to non-target insects have become apparent and interest in less hazardous alternatives of pest control is therefore being renewed. Plant species with known insecticidal actions are being promoted and research is being conducted to find new sources of botanical insecticides.
