Composition and insect attracting activity of the essential oil of Rosmarinus officinalis



Composition and insect attracting activity of the essential oil of Rosmarinus officinalis



Journal of chemical ecology 31(1): 111-122



The essential oil and a number of extracts of Rosmarinus officinalis L. in solvents of increasing polarity were isolated, and their components identified and tested as pest control agents. Ethanol and acetone extracts attract grape berry moth Lobesia botrana. However, none of the extracts had a significant effect on western flower thrips Frankliniella occidentalis, which is attracted by 1,8-cineole, a major essential oil component.
