Every pest control chemical has a different mode of action. The mode of action is the way that the insecticide kills or repels the target pest. For example, Deltamethrin (the active ingredient in Delta Dust) kills by acting as a high-power poison to the insect's central nervous system. You can wash off some insects, such as aphids and spider mites, with a water hose. You may hand-pick some insects or egg masses from the plant to prevent damage. Chemical control of insects often may be necessary. For best results, treat insects before large numbers build up in the garden. Dusts or sprays provide good control.

Attention is addressed to the economic rationale concerned with controlling pest infestations. While insect- pest control is the main topic, applications and practices of the control of other pest organisms customarily dealt with by entomologists are also discussed.

Pest Control. Pests, such as insects and mice can cause enormous damage to library materials. Insects. Insects pose a serious threat to collections of all types. The environment that is the most damaging to collections—high humidity, poor air circulation, poor housekeeping—is also the most beneficial to insects. This book belongs to a series designed to fill the gap in scientific publications between the very elementary expositions and the specialist text-books. It comprises a survey of substances that are used in the control of arthropods, chiefly insects, of agricultural, medical or veterinary importance, and is based largely on literature published up to and includes chapters on nicotine, Cited by: 6.

Insecticides are agents of chemical or biological origin that control insects. Control may result from killing the insect or otherwise preventing it from engaging in behaviors deemed destructive.

Insecticides may be natural or manmade and are applied to target pests in a myriad of formulations and delivery systems (sprays, baits, slow-release.

Chemical control of pest management T.W.G.F.A Nijamdeen 2. Introduction • Pest control refers to the regulation or management of a species defined as a pest, usually because it is perceived to be detrimental to a person's health, the ecology or the economy.

Biological pest control is a method of controlling pests such as insects and mites by using other organisms. It relies on predation, parasitism, herbivory or other natural mechanisms, but typically also involves an active human management role.

Classical biological control involves the introduction of natural enemies of the pest that are bred in the laboratory and released into the environment.
