Eucalyptus, Lemon Oil

Eucalyptus, lemon oil has been regarded as a good insect repellant (especially for cockroaches and silverfish), during the last century. The wood is good for construction where strength and flexibility is needed. Examples are flooring, shovel and pick handles, ship building, bridge construction and carriage bottoms.
