Caption: Natural pesticide research. Technicians analysing geranium plant extracts that have a paralytic effect on Japanese beetles (Popillia japonica). The phytochemicals in geraniums are known to be harmful to Japanese beetles, a major agricultural pest. This research is being done to identify the active phytochemicals and study the effects of them on the beetles, in the hope of creating a natural botanical formulation to control them.
