Pesticide Product
Active and other ingredients together make up a pesticide product.

A pesticide is any substance "intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest." Many people are surprised to learn that antimicrobials, herbicides, and bug repellents are all types of pesticides. Plant growth regulators, defoliants, desiccants, and nitrogen stabilizers are also pesticides.
