Pesticide Active Ingredients

Active ingredients are the chemicals in pesticide products that kill, control, or repel pests. For example, the active ingredients in a herbicide are the ingredient(s) that kill weeds. Often, the active ingredients make up a small portion of the whole product. Pesticide product labels include the name of each active ingredient and its concentration in the product.

If you're looking for information about a specific chemical, you are in the right place. Not finding what you're looking for? Call 1-800-858-7378 to speak with a Pesticide Specialist.
