The history of Pyrethrin as an insect repellent can be traced back to an early Chinese Dynasty where it was grown for sale and passed along the silk routes to Europe.
Pyrethrin is derived from the flowers of Chrysanthemum Cinerarifolium and possesses a unique combination of insecticidal properties. It contains not one but at least six distinct related insecticidal ingredients called Pyrethrins. Insects affected by Pyrethrin will try to escape from the threatening area.
Although in recent years there have been several chemical imitations of Pyrethrin, none of these alone combines all the properties of Pyrethrin.
Pyrethrin is one of the safest insecticides known. It has a low toxicity rate, is non-allergenic and is approved by government regularities for the use in meat exporting and processing facilities.
Pyrethrin is a plant based product and is easily broken down by sunlight and leaves no residue. It can be used near food preparation areas or where there may be children and pets.
Disturbs insects so they move out of their hiding places and expose themselves to the Pyrethrin spray. Greater flushing power than any other commercial insecticide.
Pyrethrin initially causes insects to escape from a threatening area. A rapid paralytic action causes knockdown soon after - often within seconds.
Pyrethrin is a repellent to insects at very low concentrations, a useful property in the protection of stored grain and other foodstuffs.
Effective against a wide range of insects and pests.
Very few insects are resistant to Pyrethrin. Each batch of Pyrethrin is different and should an insect develop a resistance to one batch, over time they are effectively controlled by the next batch.
