How is Transport Mikron a non-repellent product?

What is this "transfer" effect that is mentioned for acetamiprid? Trophallaxis? Also, I've heard that this product can be considered a non-repellant...but bifenthrin is a pyrethroid repellent. Does the particular formulation keep the bifenthrin from being a repellent?


When we called FMC and asked about your question, they told us that Transport Mikron is a non-repellent and that since the two compounds are combined in a lab, the bifenthrin is not in a repellent form.  They do not make this product by combining Talstar with Acetamiprid like what you might think.  They combine acetamiprid with bifenthrin in a molecular combination in a lab, and are able to form a non-repellent product.  It would be similar to water.  There is always hydrogen and oxygen around us, but when you combine them they make something completely different...water.
