Why choose the registered FIFRA 25 (b) BigShot Maxim Botanical Tick and Mosquito control over conventional commercial pesticides?
Natural products are an excellent alternative to synthetic pesticides as a means to reduce negative
impacts to human health and the environment.
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 anti-vector activities.
Recent investigations indicate that some chemical constituents of these oils interfere with the information processing of odor that elicits the behavioral change, such as homing in on a desirable blood meal (you!) This Octopaminergic system is found in insects and not shared with mammals, most essential oil chemicals are relatively non-toxic to mammals, fish in toxicological tests and thousands of years of human use, and meet the criteria for “reduced risk” pesticides.
Some of these oils and their constituent chemicals are widely used as flavoring agents in foods and beverages and are even exempt from pesticide registration. This special regulatory status combined with the wide availability of essential oils from the flavor and fragrance industries, has made it possible to fast-track commercialization of essential oil-based pesticides. Though well received by consumers for use against home and garden pests, these “green pesticides” can also prove effective in agricultural situations, particularly for organic food production. Further, while resistance development continues to be an issue for many synthetic pesticides, it is likely that resistance will not develop to essential-oil-based pesticides owing to the complex mixtures of constituents that characterize many of these oils. Ultimately, botanical pest management products which are rich in endemic plant biodiversity have their greatest impact in integrated pest management (IPM) programs due to their safety to non-target organisms and the environment.
