Neonicotinoids are a class of insecticides chemically related to nicotine, which was used as an organic insecticide as early as the 1690’s. Introduced in 1994, neonicotinoids are used widely in crop protection, structural pest control and animal health. The most well know neonicotinoid, imidacloprid, was registered for darkling beetle control in 2008.
Organophosphates (OP’s) were one of the earliest classes of synthetic insecticides, first introduced in the 1950’s. Increased regulation in the last 25 years has reduced their availability and limited their uses. The three OP’s still available for use in poultry operations are indispensable options for insecticide rotation and resistance management.
Pyrethroids are an effective, economical class of insecticides chemically related to natural pyrethrins. No other class includes as many different compounds and formulations. Pyrethroids are used for crop protection, general pest control and mosquito abatement, and have been a mainstay for insect control in poultry production since the 1990’s.
Insect growth regulators (IGR’s) are pesticides that target life processes unique to insects, disrupting their development and metamorphosis (= change in form). When insect eggs hatch, when larvae molt or when pupae try to transform into adult insects, IGR’s will prevent these changes, killing the insect and breaking the life cycle.
