Insecticides are chemical substances used to control and eliminate insect pests. They play a vital role in agriculture and public health by preventing the damage caused by insects and controlling the spread of diseases carried by insects. Insecticides come in various forms, including sprays, powders, and baits, and they target specific insect species or have broader-spectrum effects. The choice of insecticide depends on the type of pest and the desired environmental impact.
