Wikipedia SummaryCapsaicin (8-methyl-N-vanillyl-6-nonenamide) is an active component of chili peppers, which are plants belonging to the genus Capsicum. It is a chemical irritant for mammals, including humans, and produces a sensation of burning in any tissue with which it comes into contact. The venom of a certain tarantula species activates the same pathway of pain as is activated by capsaicin, an example of a shared pathway in both plant and animal anti-mammal defense. The Elephant Pepper Development Trust claims that using chili peppers as a barrier crop can be a sustainable means for rural African farmers to deter elephants from eating their crops.An article published in the Journal of Environmental Science and Health Part B in 2006 states that 'Although hot chili pepper extract is commonly used as a component of household and garden insect-repellent formulas, it is not clear that the capsaicinoid elements of the extract are responsible for its repellency.'The first pesticide product using solely capsaicin as the active ingredient was registered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 1962. For example, the mode of action of capsaicin in inducing bronchoconstriction is thought to involve stimulation of C fibers culminating in the release of neuropeptides.
