Hallo all.
I've read in rec.gardens, about an inhibitory interaction between garlic
(Allium sativum) and aphids. I've found it an interesting  matter, and I've
thought that someone might have accomplished some studies about, but I
haven't found any bibliographic references for further informations.

Does anyone know what is the garlic's active compound and what kind of
action does it have on aphids, or give me any bibliographic references ?
