What Are Pesticides?
Pesticides are chemical compounds that are used to kill pests, including insects, rodents, fungi and unwanted plants (weeds). Pesticides are used in public health to kill vectors of disease, such as mosquitoes, and in agriculture, to kill pests that damage crops. Although pesticides have benefits, some also have drawbacks, such as potential toxicity to other organisms, including humans, and need to be used safely and disposed of properly.
Type of Pesticide
Pesticides are often referred to according to the type of pest they control.
|Algaecides||Killing and/or slowing the growth of algae|
|Antimicrobials||Control germs and microbes such as bacteria and viruses|
|Desiccants||Dry up living plant tissues|
|Defoliants||Cause plants to drop their leaves|
|Disinfectants||Control germs and microbes such as bacteria and viruses|
|Fungicides||Control fungal problems like molds, mildew, and rust|
|Herbicides||Kill or inhibit the growth of unwanted plants, aka weeds|
|Insect Growth Regulators||Disrupt the growth and reproduction of insects|
|Miticides||Control mites that feed on plants and animals|
|Molluscicides||Control slugs, snails and other molluscs|
|Mothballs||Insecticides used to kill fabric pests by fumigation in sealed containers|
|Ovicides||Control eggs of insects and mites|
|Pheromones||Attract insects or disrupt their mating behavior|
|Rodenticides||Kills rodents like mice, rats, and gophers|
Reducing Pesticide Residues in Food
How much pesticide exposure from your diet is too much? The question is complicated, depending both on the pesticide and who’s being exposed. These tips will help you reduce pesticide residues (as well as dirt and bacteria) on the food you eat:
