Natural Pyrethrin


How to keep insects away from your home without hassle and damage to your health?

Pyrethrin is one of the safest insecticides known. It has a low toxicity rate, is non-allergic and is approved by the Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority.

Pyrethrin is a refined version of Pyrethrum which 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 and these will kill any insects that come into contact with them. Pyrethrin has been used by nature for centuries without a reduction in efficacy.
Natural Pyrethrin degrades in the environment leaving virtually none of the toxin residues that you may find with synthetic products. It has a low mammalian toxicity and will rapidly metabolise if accidentally swallowed. Please, note that while safe for mammals, pyrethrins are relatively toxic to fish and reptiles so make sure you don't have any aquariums near to your dispenser.

Safety

Pyrethrin is one of the safest insecticides known. It has a low toxicity rate, is non-allergenic and is approved by government regularitory authorities for use in meat exporting and processing facilities. 

Biodegradable

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.

Flushing action

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.

Fast knockdown

Pyrethrin initially causes insects to escape from a threatening area. A rapid paralytic action causes knockdown soon after - often within seconds.

Repellency

Pyrethrin is a repellent to insects at very low concentrations, a useful property in the protection of stored grain and other foodstuffs.

Broad spectrum

Effective against a wide range of insects and pests.

Minimal insect resistance

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.

Effective against

Flies,  Mosquitoes, Ants, Fleas, Sandflies, Spiders, Moths, Silver fish, Cockroaches, Wasps & more.

Imitations

Although in recent years there have been several chemical imitations of Pyrethrin, none of these alone combines all the properties of Pyrethrin.
