BackgroundRose-scented geranium, Pelargonium spp., essential oils from the cultivars Bourbon', China', Egypt', Rober's Lemon Rose' and Frensham' were analyzed by GC-FID and GC-MS. A total of 136 compounds were identified from five essential oils, constituting 85.5-99.7% of the oils. Essential oils and pure compounds were evaluated for their insecticidal activity against Stephanitis pyrioides and larvicidal and biting deterrent activity against Aedes aegypti.
