A pesticide can be a naturally derived or synthetically produced substance and can also be an organism, for example, the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis which is used to control a number of insect pests.

Pesticides include, fungicides, herbicides, insecticides, lures, rodenticides and repellents. They are used in commercial, domestic, urban and rural environments.
