All herbicides are pesticides. All insecticides are pesticides. All fungicides are pesticides. "pesticides" is an umbrella term. All sub category chemicals (herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, etc) fall under the umbrella of "pesticide".

Store bought pesticides are classified as "general use" pesticides. You need a license to apply. "restricted use" pesticides are pesticides that will cause harm to the environment, even if they are applied properly and according to label directions. You need a license to purchase these chemicals.

In over 22 years in this business, I have never ran across an issue where a "restricted use" pesticide was necessary. I'm not saying there are instances where they may be necessary, I'm just saying that I, personally, have never seen one.
