This classification of insecticides is based on chemical structure and primarily on the system developed by the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC ). This classification scheme is consistent with that used in The Pesticide Manual and the terms widely used in the literature. The IRAC has also developed a separate nematicide coding system based on mode of action.
