insecticide

an agent that kills insects. May be applied by pour-on technique, dipping, spraydip, jetting, dusting powders. Insecticides come in a wide variety of chemical compounds. See also pyrethroids, rotenone, derris, chlorinated hydrocarbons, organophosphorus compound, arsenical, carbamates, triazines. The toxicity of an insecticidal preparation may be greatly altered by the agents used as emulsifiers and solvents. Called also pesticide.

insecticide resistance
insects exposed to one insecticide for long periods may develop a resistance to it and suffer no ill-effects when it is applied.

The 4 insecticides selected for testing were bifenthrin, deltamethrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, and imidacloprid.
indica to spinosad and emamectin resulted in significantly higher survival while its survival was significantly lower against lambda-cyhalothrin and radiant.
Mortality rates for lambda-cyhalothrin plus BA-treated WSEBs alone were indistinguishable from those for lambda-cyhalothrin IRS (p = 0.

In 2014, lambda-cyhalothrin and chlorantraniliprole were evaluated using timing schedules 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, and methomyl was excluded from the analysis.
18) Also, lambda-cyhalothrin formulated as Demand CS is microencapsulated, which provides further protection against environmental degradation.
Our results highlighted that Lambda-cyhalothrin as active chemical, has a toxic effect of the approved dose on residual aphid populations, and a moderately toxic effect to the half dose, unlike the biological insecticide Spinosad including who show a neutral effect according to the two tested doses.
Just 7 days after the simulated runoff event, lambda-cyhalothrin and bifenthrin concentrations in some ditch water samples collected downstream had declined so significantly that they were well within acceptable toxicological threshold ranges.
