Insecticide herbicides!

Some Roundup and other "Glyphosate-Based Herbicides" (GBH) can be considered insecticides, as demonstrated by this publication: "A Roundup herbicide (glyphosate-based herbicide HBG) causes high mortality and impairs development of lacewing Chrysoperla carnea larvae" Ecotoxicological testing of herbicides focuses on non-target plants and higher animals, while direct effects on arthropods are only superficially tested on the basis of contact exposure. However, oral exposure, as we show in our case, can be highly relevant for systemic pesticides,
