Science Alumni Victoria Regional Event:
Plant vs. Pest: Are botanical insecticies the future of bug control?

Flowering plants have been waging chemical warfare against insects for 350 million years. But the rise of chemical pesticides in the 1950s relegated natural botanical insecticides to near obscurity. Now, concerns over the negative impacts of pesticides and growing demand for organics has led to a ‘renaissance’ of eco-friendly insect control derived from plant essential oils and extracts. Join UBC’s Murray Isman as he shares the latest on natural pesticides—including the bug killers on your spice rack.
