Synthetic Pyrethroid Insecticides
Natural pyrethrin products pose far less risks to mammals than
Organophosphate, Carbamate insecticide chemicals but have no residual or long
term control qualities. This combination of safety and no residual is
great for fogging warehouses and restaurants, using in bug bombs and animal
control products (flea shampoos, flea sprays) but no residual affect is not
desired for most home pest control problems.
Some examples of synthetic pyrethroid insecticides:
Bifenthrin is one of the newest products on the market and is the best for killing molecrickets, ants and other pests of lawns and ornamentals. The unique biphenyl action binds the molecule to the soil. In other words, the chemical stays where you apply it and does not leech.
