    Pesticide includes all things listed on the chart above.  Pest meaning nusiance
and Cide meaning to control.  Three main objectives of pesticides are to prevent damage, suppress damage to an acceptable level or eradicate the population. Therefore, the majority of  people use a pesticide to some extent whether it be aerosol cans, fly strips, parasite control in pets, as well as to control damage in either plant and animal life forms.  Bio control in different forms is fast becoming popular but pesticides are part of the management scheme to produce food, fiber, and comfort for the American people.
