Pesticides have an important space in crop protection of agricultural sciences. Farming community of our country uses many pesticides to protect their crops and stored product from crop pests like insects, mites, rodents, fungus, bacteria, nematodes, mycoplasmas, weeds etc. Some farmers use it indiscriminately in over doses, under doses without following proper time and schedule as well as choosing wrong pesticides to protect their crops. These may cause poor management of pests, pest resistance, pest resurgence as well as environmental pollution. They don’t dress up themselves properly during pesticide application time which may fate them with acute and chronic toxicity in their future and this may also cause pest resistance and insect resurgence. The pesticides enter their body through inhalation of spray, unbroken skin, wounds (cuts) in vapors or droplets form and oral ingestion (by mouth with food, drink or cigarettes).
