Systemic insecticides are absorbed and distributed throughout a plant while contact pesticides only affect insects on the surface. Insecticides can be natural (for example nicotine extracts), organic (generally contact-based) or inorganic, metal-based insecticides.

Systemic insecticides are absorbed and distributed throughout a plant while contact pesticides only affect insects on the surface. Insecticides can be natural (for example nicotine extracts), organic (generally contact-based) or inorganic, metal-based insecticides. Some transgenic plants have been modified to manufacture insecticides directly.

It is important to use the right type, and quantity of insecticide for each application. For example, insecticides can cause bee populations to decline, leading to reduced crop yields. Some classes of synthetic insecticide, particularly organophosphates and organochlorides, remain effective for long periods and sometimes build up in the food chain, harming animals further up the chain. A well-known example is DDT, which was once in widespread use, but is now banned. DDT, which is the subject of the book Silent Spring, can make eggshells vulnerable to cracking, adversely affecting bird populations. Other synthetic pesticides, such as pyrethroids and neonicotinoids, are considerably less toxic.
