Aircraft disinsection is the use of insecticide on international flights for insect and disease control. It was first used in the 1930s but it is being reduced because of the effects on passengers and crew. The insecticide used is specialized for use on aircraft and has low human toxicity.

In emergencies like a malaria or yellow fever outbreak it is used when flying from those areas.
