Insecticides, a type of pesticide, are chemicals that destroy or inhibit specific developmental stages of insects. These insects can cause diseases in plants, so insecticides are used to prevent the effectivity of the pests on the growth and productivity of crops. Although most commonly used in agriculture, they can also be used in public health and industrial applications, as well as household and commercial uses such as to control infestations of roaches and termites.
Insecticides are applied in various formulations and delivery systems including sprays, baits, slow-release diffusion, and more that influence their transport and chemical transformation. Proper handling and application have to be carried out as these chemicals can be extremely hazardous to the human body and other living organisms.
