Pesticide is a rather broad, general term utilized to describe a diverse group of compounds which have been widely utilized to control a variety of organisms considered as pests. In the United States, pesticides are described in the Federal Environmental Pesticide Control Act as any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling or mitigating any pest. A pest may be an insect, rodent, nematode, fungus, weed, other forms of terrestrial or aquatic plant or animal life, viruses, bacteria, or other micro-organisms on or inside humans as well as animals, which the Administrator declares to be a pest. Substances which are utilized as plant regulators, defoliants or dessicants are also identified as pesticides. Pesticides discussed in this paper include the following:
