Are you saying that the psycho-active component of Salvia comandeers  
the brain-state of the "predator" and sends it on its mission to find  
Miss Salvia for purposes of pollination?

Would it be possible to examine the brain state of an insect "under  
the influence" to verify this somehow? Brilliant theory....maybe this  
somehow relates to the appearance of the mysterious female in Salvia- 
induced dysphoria in humans?
