The Different Types Of Insecticides And How They Work
Insecticides are pesticides that are used specifically for the killing of insects. They are generally used to protect crops from damage by insects, but can also be used in public health campaigns against disease-carrying insects such as mosquitoes. Insecticides are generally classified as either broad spectrum or narrow spectrum. Broad spectrum insecticides are effective against a wide range of insects, while narrow spectrum insecticides are effective against a specific type of insect.
Different types of insecticides will have different levels of efficacy on different insects, so the best approach is to identify the pest type and then select the most appropriate pesticide for tackling the specific pest problem. Additionally, it is important to read and understand the label instructions for proper application to ensure that the product is used in the correct way.
