A pesticide, or a plant protection product, is any substance or mixture of substances used to destroy, suppress or alter the life cycle of anything that is not wanted on a crop. 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. There are currently thousands of pesticide products registered. A lot of the products are allowed to use in several different legislations and others are not (any more).

Primoris started as a lab with the specialty of just pesticides and therefore we have a lot of experience with these products.
