Biochemical pesticides act by controlling pests non-toxically, unlike conventional pesticides that kill pests. Microbial pesticides are made from genetically modified or natural organisms such as bacteria, fungi, protozoans or viruses. These biopesticides act by causing a disease or producing a toxin specific for a pest.
