Concentrated insecticides are materials that are mixed with water (in most cases) and are then applied through pump sprayers, foggers or other approved type of insecticide dispenser.
When an emulsifiable concentrate insecticide (for instance) is mixed and sprayed on a wood surface, much of the active ingredient is absorbed into the wood or evaporates.

 Guidelines on the Use of Insecticide-treated Mosquito Nets for the Prevention and Control of Malaria in Africa
To correctly treat a net with an insecticide, a net of a given size/surface area is treated with an appropriate insecticide mixture (which has been prepared by mixing a specified amount of insecticide formulation, with a specified quantity of water) in order to obtain the target dosage of the insecticide.
Vector response to insecticides in terms of behaviour and insecticide susceptibility is an important determinant of the efficacy of ITMNs.
It is therefore necessary that the insecticide susceptibility or resistance status of the vectors be assessed, with the practical implications of resistances already encountered (especially at high levels) in different representative situations investigated.

 Insecticide Poisoning Information on Healthline
Insecticide poisoning is exposure to a group of chemicals designed to eradicate insects that cause affected persons to develop clinical signs that can progress to death.
Insecticides belong to a group of chemicals called organophosphates, used to protect against insects.

 B1083 Insecticide Trials for Control of Tarnished Plant Bug on Cotton
Insecticides were typically applied with a high-clearance plot spray tractor with nozzles spaced for 38-inch (96.5 cm) row spacing at 19-inch (48.3 cm) centers (two nozzles per row) with one nozzle directly over the row and one directly between rows.
To make observations of trends and general comparisons of results between insecticide classes, years, or individual insecticides, the mean insect count for each treatment in each test was normalized against the mean insect count occurring in the untreated or water-treated check plots.
It is important to realize that small-plot insecticide evaluations against a highly mobile pest such as the plant bug may be negatively biased because of immigrating insects from surrounding cotton during the period of pesticide evaluation.

However, some of the newer synthetic pyrethroid insecticides are active against flies in such small quantities, that much better reduction in face flies is seen.
