Lambda-cyhalothrin belongs to a group of chemicals called synthetic pyrethroids. Pyrethroids were designed by scientists to mimic the properties of naturally-occurring pyrethrins made from crushed Chrysanthemum flower petals. The manmade version is preferred to the real thing because it has the advantage of remaining active for longer periods of time.
Lambda-cyhalothrin begins working on contact for rapid kill. Lambda-cyhalothrin begins working immediately upon contact or ingestion, leading to insect knock-down and death. Lambda-cyhalothrin and other pyrethroids act as powerful poison to the central nervous system. Once poisoned, the insect’s nerve cells become excited, causing paralysis and preventing normal feeding and grooming activities. Absence of these activities leads to the insect’s eventual or immediate death.

Handlers of Lambda-cyhalothrin should always read the product label and wear protective clothing as indicated.
