Abstract: Agriculturists in low-income nations, particularly subsistence farmers, frequently use botanical insecticides. The soaring cost and scarcity of commercial insecticides frequently promote the use of them. The identification of botanicals with insecticidal abilities is typically from folklore. Several scientific investigations have been done over the years to ascertain the effectiveness and safety of various botanical principles. Consistent reviews of these investigations are needed to update knowledge and to develop a theoretical foundation for further studies. Thus, the effectiveness of evaluated botanicals as insecticides against acarids and insect pests in agriculture is the primary focus of this article.
