What Are Pesticides?

New ELISA Kits for Pesticides Detection

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.

Type Usage
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
Insecticides Control insects
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:

  • First, eat a variety of fruits and vegetables to minimize the potential of increased exposure to a single pesticide.
  • Thoroughly wash all produce, even that which is labeled organic and that which you plan to peel.
  • Simply wash the products either with tap water or distilled water rather than soaking or dunking it.
  • Dry them either with a piece of white cloth or with a disposable paper towel.
  • Scrub firm fruits and vegetables, like melons and root vegetables.
  • Discard the outer layer of leafy vegetables, such as lettuce or cabbage.
  • Peel the outer layers of fruits and vegetables.
  • Trim fat and skin from meat, poultry, and fish to minimize pesticide residue that may accumulate in the fat.
