International Insecticides

PelGar produces a range of advanced formula insecticides for the international market. Most of the products contain at least two active ingredients which combine long-lasting and fast-acting effects, or have different modes of action, for the control of even the most difficult pest population.
There is no such thing as a ‘universal’ insecticide which will perform perfectly against all pests, on all substrates and under all environmental conditions. By designing specific formulation types for different problem situations, PelGar is able to enhance the insecticidal activity of the active materials.
Most of the insecticides are based on one or more of the synthetic pyrethroids, which are well known for their ‘broad-spectrum’ activity. Some PelGar products also contain the extremely potent insect growth regulator pyriproxifen. This offers dual action control while reducing the onset of potential insecticide resistance. Further protection from resistance is achieved by incorporating high levels of the pyrethroid synergist piperonyl butoxide.
Years of research and experience in Europe, the Near East, Africa and South America have enabled the PelGar team to produce some of the most robust and effective pest control insecticides available in today’s market.

Cytrol XL is a cost effective general purpose insecticide which combines the excellent insecticidal activity of cypermethrin in combination with the knockdown/flushing agent tetramethrin. The addition of the synergist PBO enhances the speed of knockdown and synergises the killing effect ensuring the product remains effective even against insects that show tolerance to pyrethroids.

Larvakill is a novel formulation specifically formulated for the control of mosquito larvae both in their natural breeding sites and in potable water containers. The product is also effective for the control of fly larvae in animal houses. Typical application rates for mosquito larvae are 20-45 g ai/ha water surface, and for fly larvae, as a surface application in animal housing, 0.5-1.0 g ai/m2 surface.

Stingray is formulated as a water dilutable micro-emulsion concentrate containing the active ingredients alpha-cypermethrin and tetramethrin, combined with the insect growth regulator (IGR) pyriproxyfen and the pyrethroid synergist piperonyl butoxide.

Cimetrol, formulated as a suspo-emulsion (SE), was specifically designed for the effective control of bed-bugs and fleas, although the product carries a broad-spectrum label.Cimetrol has a deadly triple effect – containing the killing agent alpha-cypermethrin, the knock-down agent tetramethrin, and the insect growth regulator (IGR) pyriproxifen.

One of the ‘flag-ship’ products of the PelGar range, Cytrol Forte is a high strength wettable powder, containing the powerful synthetic pyrethroid cypermethrin. This has excellent insecticidal qualities and good ‘flushing’ and ‘knock-down’ effect.

Alphaban 10 SC is a high strength suspension concentrate that offers a single active material, the powerful killing agent alpha-cypermethrin.

Tyrant 50/50 SE combines the excellent insecticidal activity of alpha-cypermethrin, formulated as a suspension concentrate, with the fast acting tetramethrin combined in the liquid phase of the product.

Tyrant Super ME is a solvent-free, water dilutable, micro-emulsion concentrate which contains the killing and knock-down agents alpha-cypermethrin and tetramethrin and the pyrethroid synergist piperonyl butoxide.

Cytrol 10/4 ULV is an EC/UL formulation that allows dilution with either oil (kerosene or diesel) or water. When applied as a thermal fog or ULV space treatment it provides cost effective control of flying insects including flies, mosquitoes and biting midges. The product can also be diluted with water and applied as a residual treatment using a compression sprayer for the control of crawling insects including cockroaches or resting flying insects including flies.

Formulated as a dust for use in voids or around electrical installations where liquid sprays may not be appropriate. For the general control of crawling or resting insects, it can be applied by hand or powered dusters, and offers excellent wasp control.

About Us

PelGar International was incorporated in 1995 to develop and supply innovative and novel rodenticide and insecticide products to the global public health pesticide market. PelGar believes that, while the active ingredients used in the industry are common, the target pests and the environment in which they live are very different. Providing cost effective control therefore means that the active substance needs to be available in a wide range of formulations and this is where PelGar’s expertise lies.
