The use of synthetic products in veterinary pest management is becoming increasingly problematic. Issues, including pest resistance, product withdrawal, undesirable environmental persistence, and high mammalian toxicity associated with synthetic pesticides, are driving research to identify new pest management approaches. One approach employs the repellent/toxic effects of plant-derived products (PDPs). Several pesticides based on PDPs are already available in some areas of pest management. This review highlights instances in which such products have been used with success against pests of domestic animals, livestock, apiculture, and poultry.
