Pyrethrins are powering hundreds of insect control products, it is one of the world’s most widely used plant-based insecticide active ingredient.
Offering a myriad of benefits versus both alternative natural extracts and synthetic chemistry, natural Pyrethrins provides broad-spectrum contact kill of most insects. With its favourable toxicology profile, short environmental persistence, and short withholding period, Pyrethrins-based products are used in more sensitive applications including pest control in food processing environments, in protected cropping integrated-pest-management, and for eradicating head lice on school-age children.
