PYR 0.5 CS is a powerful insecticide for usage indoors and around buildings with one active plant-based ingredient (Pyrethrum), made stronger by a booster mix with no PBO added. PYR 0.5 CS ensures a unique long lasting effect for up to one month. The innovative micro encapsulating technology protects the flower-based active and allows a controlled release for a prolonged efficacy.
PYR 0.5 CS contains pyrethrum - one active ingredient extracted from flowers. Pyrethrum is made from dried flower heads of the Chrysanthemum flower sourced from Tasmania. Pyrethrum-producing plants are harvested and sent to a processing plant for extraction and refining. This highly complex process, the extraction by supercritical CO², is low toxic and also used in the food industry. Pyrethrum has a good biodegradability when exposed to air, light or heat. As an insecticide, it acts mainly by contact blocking the transmission and the regulation of nerve signal, and causes death.
Thanks to the unique and advanced micro encapsulating technology, the active ingredient, Pyrethrum 100%, is protected and entrapped in a coating of several different sizes, for a controlled release in the long period. The smaller particles allow the release of a small, adequate amount of active for pest control immediately after application. The remaining of the active is instead released in a steady and prolonged way up to one month by the particle having a thicker coating. The treated surface is covered with millions of microcapsules (1 to 2 million microcapsules per ml) that will be picked up by the insects moving over the treated surface.
PYR 0.5 CS allows a complete protection against the most common indoor and outdoor insects and guarantees a complete control on crawling (ants, cockroaches, silverfish, spiders, stinkbugs) and flying insects (flies, mosquitoes, wasps). If used against crawling insects, the microencapsulation technology favors the control of the colonies: in fact, some capsules will be transported by the poisoned insect to the harborage sites, for a complete colony control. When in the shop, the end user usually looks for an easy-to-use product that can be applied in the event of a specific infestation, but is also useful to have at home for future emergencies: for this reason, PYR 0.5 CS is the multi target control system ideal for amateur use.
In the most common insecticide products, Pyrethrum is combined with a synthetic synergist to reach a better performance. However, the synthetic synergist can increase the toxicity of the formula not only on target insects but also, for example, on bees. We choose to create our PYR 0.5 CS with only one insecticide active ingredient. We developed a NO PBO added formula with a special booster mix that has a double effect: it allows a better distribution of the product on the cuticle, increasing the surface of contact, and weakens the natural protection of the insect’s cuticle.
