Piperonyl Butoxide enhances killing power when added to insecticide mixtures.
Piperonyl Butoxide is a chemical synergist. In other words, it does not have pesticidal properties all by itself, but rather it greatly enhances the potency and killing power of other active ingredients like pyrethroids and carbamates when added to insecticidal mixtures.
Piperonyl Butoxide reduces the cost of pesticides.
In many cases, Piperonyl Butoxide actually reduces the amount of active ingredient required to kill insects, thereby reducing the cost of pest control products.
Man-made from synthetic sassafras oil, Piperonyl Butoxide is non-toxic in its technical form, and contains minimal toxicity when combined with other active ingredients.
