Oregano oil as natural pesticide


Article from Science Daily
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/05/080522072339.htm
reports tested efficacy of oregano oil against plant beetles.
First para:
"ScienceDaily (May 23, 2008) — New research in the Society of Chemical Industry's Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture shows that oregano oil works as well as synthetic insecticides to combat infestation by a common beetle, Rhizoppertha dominica, found in stored cereals."
I have been using bay leaf in containers of cereals.
Your opinion?

The tests look promising, based on the article. Certainly worth a try.
Is there an oregano oil product on the market that you know about?
