Location: Online

Insecticides are an integral part of pest management in modern agriculture, but are also commonly the focus of public scrutiny over human health and environmental safety concerns. This seminar will broadly cover the history of the development of different major types of insecticides, and highlight the trends in insecticide technology and use through time. We will cover how the major groups of insecticides kill insect pests, and what potential risks they each carry for human and environmental health.
