Abstract Several plant essential oils were tested for their effect on behaviour and mortality of M. euphorbiae. Olfactory and contact experiments were performed to study these effects. We found that host plant and formulation of the different oils have a strong influence on repellence and mortality of the aphids. Three out of ten tested oils show potential for control of this aphid in greenhouses and field crops
