Cypothrin is a high performance insecticide for the control of the main pests of domestic and industrial premises, including flies, cockroaches, ants, bugs, lice, wasps, spiders, moths, fleas, wood boring beetles, crickets, etc.
Cypothrin has also a good efficacy against larvae.
The pyrethroid cypermethrin works through contact and ingestion. It acts directly on the central and peripheral nervous system, causing hyper-excitability, tremors and convulsions.
Cypermethrin has a high residual performance, which is almost three times the persistence of the permethrin formulations.
Cypothrin usually, does not stain painted walls. However, its application should be avoided on recently whitewashed walls, since Cypermethrin is unstable under alkaline conditions.
