The flower heads are used to make the natural pyrethrum spray. For a homemade solution you can make a tea with the flower heads, wait till it cools and strain. You will need a small amount of a surfactant like dishwash liquid to help it stick to the plant, spray on. Please note that although this is a natural remedy it could still harm beneficial insects so it's best to spray in the evening when the bees and butterflies aren't around.
