Bactericide is a chemical agent that helps to prevent the formation of bacteria. Bactericides are often used as additives in coatings and corrosion inhibitors. Bactericides are used to control corrosion caused by bacteria, such as sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB).
If you understand the difference between “Insects” and “Fungi”, it is not much difficult to understand the difference between fungicide and insecticide. Normally they are different types of chemicals which are used to get rid of insects and fungi in home, apartments and offices.
Insecticides are pesticides that are formulated to kill, harm, repel or mitigate one or more species of insect. Insecticides work in different ways. Some insecticides disrupt the nervous system, whereas others may damage their exoskeletons, repel them or control them by some other means.
Larvicides target larvae in the breeding habitat before they can mature into adult mosquitoes and disperse. Larvicide treatment of breeding habitats helps reduce the adult mosquito population in nearby areas. Liquid larvicide products are applied directly to water using backpack sprayers and truck or aircraft-mounted sprayers.
