Contains: 3% w/w pyrethrins
Control: Flying and crawling insects, including stored product insects (SPI)
Application: Compression sprayer / ULV / mist / fog
Pyblast is a micro-emulsion concentrate, non-persistent insecticidal spray for fogging, ULV application, misting or surface treatment in food handling and food storage premises and for public hygiene / nuisance insect control.
Pyblast is synergised with piperonyl butoxide (PBO), increasing the efficacy and inhibiting insect’s natural resistance mechanism.
Pyrethrins are natural substance purified from chrysanthemum flowers. Chrysanthemum flowers have been available in Europe for over 150 years and in their powdered form were used as louse and flea powders. It is only in the last 50 years that liquid concentrates for public health pest control have appeared.
Pyrethrins cause rapid knockdown of insects followed shortly by death. The mode of action is by contact action the toxic effect is caused by the binding of pyrethrins to sodium channels which inhibit the insect’s nervous system. This mode of action leads to a broad-spectrum of insecticidal activity, and due to the non-persistence of the active ingredient in the environment, insect resistance is very rare.
Pyblast is suitable for use in organic Farm Assurance Schemes (FAS).
