PYRIPROXYFEN is an insect growth regulator. It mimics natural insect hormones that stop young insects from maturing into adults. Pyriproxyfen can affect an insect if it is touched or eaten. However, pyriproxyfen is rarely toxic to adult insects. Instead, it disturbs egg-laying and egg-hatch and keeps young insects from growing into adult forms. This prevents target insects from multiplying. Pyriproxyfen control of public health insect pests (flies, beetles, midges, mosquitoes); applied to breeding sites (swamps, livestock houses, etc.)Also used for control of whitefly and thrips.
· Insect growth regulator that is a juvenile hormone mimic and allows ultimate versatility for indoor and outdoor applications, and even food areas.
· Targeted mode of action prevents eggs, larvae and pupae from maturing into adults
· Translaminar movement in leaves
· Effective on many tough pests including fleas, ticks, cockroaches, flies and mosquitoes.
