    The chief stomach poisons are the arsenicals —e. Axonic poisons are those that in some way affect the electrical impulse transmission along the axons, the elongated extensions of the neuron cell body. As narcotics, they induce narcosis, sleep, or unconsciousness, which in effect is their action on insects. The other category is organic type of fungicides.

    Toxaphene is rather easily metabolized by mammals and birds, and is not stored in body fat nearly to the extent of DDT, HCH and the cyclodienes. All of these are photostable, that is, they do not undergo photolysis splitting in sunlight. Most pesticides work by poisoning pests. They may irritate your skin, eyes, nose, and throat. It is with this view that the data which follow are offered to the public.

    Cases of insecticide poisoning of humans also occur occasionally, and the use of one common organophosphate, parathionwas drastically curtailed in the United States in owing to its toxic effects on farm labourers who were directly exposed to it. Nicotine Nicotine is extracted by several methods from tobacco, and is effective against most all types of insect pests, but is used particularly for aphids and caterpillars--soft bodied insects. Septoria tritici has developed multiple drug resistance using this mechanism. They can be used to control fungi that damage plantsincluding rusts, mildews and blights. Most of the cyclodienes are persistent insecticides and are stable in soil and relatively stable to the ultraviolet of sunlight.

Not yet registered in the U. There were other cyclodienes of minor importance developed in the U. More than 4 billion pounds of DDT were used throughout the world, beginning inand in the U.

They are :. Sulfur, mentioned in the introduction, is very likely the oldest known, effective insecticide. It has ovicidal activity, gives rapid knockdown, and controls all stages of mites.

Find the Environmental Protection Agency Website. It is also fascinating, and remains to be acknowledged as the most useful insecticide developed. It is both a stomach and contact insecticide and used for the last century and a half to control leaf-eating caterpillars, and three centuries prior to that in South America to paralyze fish, causing them to surface and be easily captured.

This has been seen with carbendazim and diethofencarb. Mode of action Spinosad acts by disrupting binding of acetylcholine in nicotinic acetylcholine receptors at the postsynaptic cell Salgado VL See also Nicotine under the Botanicals.

Cases of insecticide poisoning of humans also occur occasionally, and the use of one common organophosphate, parathionwas drastically curtailed in the United States in owing to its toxic effects on farm labourers who were directly exposed to it.

The other category is organic type of fungicides. They contain two phenyl rings, resembling DDT, with sulfur in place of carbon as the central atom. Owing to repeated sprayings, these chemicals can accumulate in soils in surprisingly large amounts 10— kilograms per hectare [10— pounds per acre]and their effect on wildlife is greatly increased as they become associated with food chains.

Shortly after exposure, larvae stop feeding and become irreversibly paralyzed, dying in days. Mode of action The nicotinoids act on the central nervous system of insects, causing irreversible blockage of postsynaptic nicotinergic acetylcholine receptors See also Nicotine under the Botanicals.

Insecticides may also encourage the growth of harmful insect populations by eliminating the natural enemies that previously held them in check.

Some of the major companies operating in global insecticides market include, E. Alternatives that can fully replace methyl bromide are unlikely to be available by the deadlines set for replacement.

Dinocap is an effective miticide and was very heavily used as a fungicide for the control of powdery mildew fungi. Azadirachtin has shown some rather sensational insecticidal, fungicidal and bactericidal properties, including insect growth regulating qualities.The basic dinitrophenol molecule has a broad range of toxicities--as herbicides, insecticides, ovicides, and fungicides.

Of the insecticides, binapacryl (Morocide®) and dinocap (Karathane®) were the most recently used. Dinocap is an effective miticide and was very heavily used as a fungicide for the control of powdery mildew fungi.

Pesticide use raises a number of environmental concerns. Over 98% of sprayed insecticides and 95% of herbicides reach a destination other than their target species, including non-target species, air, water and soil. Pesticide drift occurs when pesticides suspended in the air as particles are carried by wind to other areas, potentially contaminating them.

•Fungicides (to kill mould or fungi): when applied to wood, they are called wood preservatives. •Rodenticides (to kill mice, rats, moles and other rodents). •Fumigants are pesticides that exist as a gas or a vapour at room temperature and may be used as insecticides, fungicides or rodenticides, especially in closed storage places – as.

The Chemical Composition of Insecticides and Fungicides By R. H. sylvaindez.com and C. F. VsIIITAKER TNT RC) DUCT JO N Before any spray material cart be used successfully for the control of insect pests or fungous diseases it is necessary to know, first, what active constituents are present, and second, what amount or percentage of each.

An Introduction to Insecticides (4th edition)

Get this from a library! The chemical composition of insecticides and fungicides. With an account of the methods of analysis employed. [J K Haywood; United States. Bureau of Chemistry.; United States. Department of Agriculture.]. Fungicides in powdered form are usually around 90% sulfur and are very toxic.

Other active ingredients in fungicides include neem oil, rosemary oil, jojoba oil, the bacterium Bacillus subtilis, and the beneficial fungus Ulocladium oudemansii.

Fungicide residues have been found on food for human consumption, mostly from post-harvest treatments.
