Reading Assignment 2 Insect pesticides have been universally used worldwide in order to control insect populations that cause destruction to communities and crops. One pesticide that was once commonly used was DDT, which contributed in greatly eliminating disease carrying insects and saving tens of millions of lives. Despite this, the pesticide is now banned nearly worldwide for the use of insect control. With this in mind, there are now questions that linger in regards to DDT. These questions include why there was a change in opinion on DDT, and whether or not DDT should be reintroduced as an insecticide to be used globally or in crisis scenarios. Regarding DDT, one of the main questions surrounding it was why there was a change in opinion in the use of the pesticide.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
