A pesticide is a killing agent, which means to cut or to kill unwanted pests. They are intended to control, prevent, destroy, repel or mitigate directly or indirectly, any insect.
In pest management, it is important to know the identity, habitat, host range, seasonal abundance, natural enemies and the influence of the physical factors on the insect population before an effective and ecologically sound pest management program is formulated. The abundance of insects is an indicator of a breakdown in proper housekeeping. Identification of insects provides knowledge about a particular species.
