What are Pyrethrins ?
Pyrethrins are natural insecticides found
in daisy-like Chrysanthemum flowers grown and harvested in Kenya,
Africa and Austrailia. Pyrethrins have a low order of toxicity to
warm-blooded animals and can be used even in the home with extreme
When pyrethrins are combined with a synergist like
piperonyl butoxide, its "killing power" against insects increases
The United States Department of Agriculture has stated
that synergized pyrethrum "is probably the safest of all insecticides
for use in food plants " and that " a pyrethrum formulation is approved
for use around foodstuffs".
Pyrethrin may be used with safety in food plants,
homes and around animals where more hazardous materials cannot be
used. It has a long history of satisfactory use around mammals and
Pyrethrin and the synergists are biodegradable and
rapidly disintegrate in sunlight and air, thus assuring you that
there will be no excessive build-up of insecticides dispensed in
the area being treated.
REPELLENT AND INSECTICIDAL PROPERTIES:
Pyrethrin, usually considered only for its
knock-down and kill effect, also possesses substantial inherent repellency
Observations in food establishments demonstrate that
flies are not immediately killed but are found more often on windowsills
or near doorways, bearing out the observation that pyrethrins are
effective repellents, kill slowly due to the low dosage applied and
drive the fly to seek the outdoors before dying.
