Insecticides

Summary | Classification
Insecticides are pesticides used against insects. Insecticides are mainly used to control pests that infest cultivated plants and crops or to eliminate disease-carrying insects in specific areas. They include ovicides and larvicides used against the eggs and larvae of insects respectively. Insecticides are used in agriculture, medicine, industry and the household.

The principal source is from chemical manufacturing, although a few are derived from plants.  Insecticides may be inorganic or organic chemicals. Inorganic insecticides include arsenic, lead, and copper compounds. Some organic insecticides are natural, such as rotenone, pyrethrins, and nicotine.

Insecticides are classified according to type of action as stomach poisons, contact poisons, residual poisons, systemic poisons, fumigants, repellents, attractants, insect growth regulators, or pheromones. Many act in more than one way.

Nearly all insecticides have the potential to significantly alter ecosystems; many are toxic to humans; and others are concentrated in the food chain.
