Natural and Biological Pesticides

Biopesticides Minimum Risk
Organic Pesticides

Many things found in nature can be used to control pests. Most of them are considered 'organic' when used as pesticides. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) evaluates some of them as 'biopesticides.' There is also a small list of 'minimum risk pesticides' that are exempt from EPA review.
