Insecticides are substances that kill insects. They find wide application in various fields such as agriculture, medicine, and industrials. They can also change the components of the ecosystem primarily, and some of them are toxic to animals and humans as well.

Depending on their chemical composition, insecticides fall into two groups - organic and inorganic.

Depending on their mode of action they are classified into different categories such as nerve poisons, physical poisons, protoplasmic poisons, respiratory poisons, chitin inhibitors, and general poisons. Depending on their mode of entry into insects, they are separated out as fumigant poisons, contact poisons, systemic poisons, and stomach poisons. Depending on the specificity stage, they are differentiated as pupicides, ovicides, adulticides, and larvicides.

The toxicity level of an insecticide is marked by assigning a color to each level of toxicity. Green indicates less toxic, blue indicates a moderate level of toxicity, yellow indicates high toxicity while red means extremely toxic.There are certain factors you need to consider when buying an outdoor insect killer. The first are the types of insects you’re trying to kill. There are various products in the market designed for different species of insects. Another factor is the coverage area. Some insecticides will cover larger areas while others are meant for smaller areas. The third important factor is of course the price. You can find an affordable one according to your budget.

But if you were buying indoor insecticides, other factors would play a role. For instance, performance vs. cost would be an important factor. A high-quality brand would also matter. The specifications are to be noted too. Will they meet your particular needs? And of course, you would need to take note of customer ratings. Anything over 4 that can do the job you want it to do is a good choice. 

Finally, when choosing an insecticide, there are no hard and fast rules. Only you will know your situation best. Act accordingly.
