10g/L Pyrethrins, 18g/L Piperonyl butoxide, 30g/L N-Octyl
A low odour, water based formulation suitable for use in a hydrobath, rinse, dip or spray. Contains no alcohol or petroleum solvents.
The natural pyrethrins, which have no anticholinesterase activity, act in insects by slowly closing the sodium channel activation gate causing hyperexcitation followed by convulsion and death. They are synergised by Piperonyl butoxide, which has a minor repellant action in its own right. N-Octyl bicycloheptene dicarboximide (MGK 264) is an insecticide synergist and it has repellant properties.
