Hydramethylnon is a metabolic inhibitor with a unique delayed-action property to maximize control of ant and roach populations.
Hydramethylnon is an odorless, yellow-orange crystalline solid, functioning most frequently as the active ingredient in ready-to-use roach and ant bait formulations. Hydramethylnon bait stations, bait gels, and granulars target a wide variety of ant and roach species both indoors and outdoors.
Hydramethylnon is one among a group of pesticides known as trifluoromethyl aminohydrazones, or, “metabolic inhibitors”. While the majority of insecticides attack the insect's central nervous system to cause nerve excitation, metabolic inhibitors like hydramethylnon attack the insect’s metabolic systems, resulting in decreased energy, lethargy, and the inability to perform basic life-sustaining functions such as feeding and grooming. Symptoms are delayed, however, with death typically occurs within 24 to 72 hours. This unique property allows for affected carrier insects to return to their colony or harborage and spread the poison to others:
Hydramethylnon is classified as a General Use Pesticide (GUP), meaning that it is unlikely to harm the environment as long as you follow the directions on the label. Anyone can safely use a GUP, not just the pros.
