PelGar International has received approval in New Zealand for its natural insecticide product – PyGar – a fast-acting non-residual insecticide for the control of a wide range of flying and crawling insect pests.
PyGar contains natural pyrethrum – an extract from the chrysanthemum daisy – and offers “fast-knock” down of susceptible insects. It also benefits from the addition of the synergist piperonyl butoxide (PBO) which enhances the kill by reducing the insects’ ability to quickly metabolise and de-toxify the natural pyrethrum providing more effective control.
PyGar can be used in thermal fogging equipment, ULV misters and motorised knapsacks to control insects in a variety of indoor situations. This includes: food preparation areas, meat packing and animal slaughtering premises, factories and residential housing. PyGar can also be applied outdoors for mosquito control.
