"Dear "Do My Own," I must thank you all for the ant killing stuff! For the first time in years we have no Argentine ants around our home! I think you should let all Californians know how good you products are! They will probably return, but for now, wow! "
Permethrin is an active-ingredient insecticide used in many professional pest-control products to control a wide variety of pests, including ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, bedbugs, chiggers, flies, termites, and cockroaches. Permethrin is often used as a spray on fabrics, clothing, and bed nets to repel or kill insects. For example, ticks confronted with a permethrin-treated pant leg will drop off before they have the chance to attach and feed. Permethrin is available in concentrates, dusts, and wettable powder formulations.
Permethrin Products Permethrin begins working on contact for faster kill.
Permethrin begins working immediately upon contact or ingestion, leading to insect knock-down and eventual death. Permethrin kills by acting as a high-power 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.
Permethrin belongs to a class of insecticides known as synthetic pyrethroids. Synthetic pyrethroids are man-made insecticides created to mimic the chemical properties of the naturally-occurring substance pyrethrum, which comes from the crushed petals of the Chrysanthemum flower. This plant has been recognized since the 18 th century for its insecticide properties. Synthetic pyrethroids, like Permethrin, are often preferred to the real thing as active ingredients because they offer the added bonus of remaining effective for longer periods of time.
