Abstract: Insects are the most abundant group of organisms on Earth, and they negatively affect humans in a variety of ways. During the 1940s, a number of chemical insecticides were developed as a means of controlling the proliferation of noxious insect populations. A microbial insecticide can be an organism that either produces a toxic substance that kills an insect species or has the capability of fatally infecting a specific target insect. There are three types of bacterial insecticides like Insecticidal toxin of Bacillus thuringiensis, Genetic engineering of Bt toxin genes and Baculoviruses as biocontrol agents.
