Allethrin

Allethrin Adulticide Insecticides

Allethrin insecticides are a synthetic duplicate of a component of pyrethrum. Pyrethrum is a botanical insecticide extracted from chrysanthemum flowers. Allethrin, the first synthetic pyrethroid, was introduced in 1949, and is a mixture of several isomeric forms. The most common form is a 4:1 mixture of the trans- and cis-isomers. It is available in aerosol, coil, mat, dust and oil formulations. Aerosol and spray formulations of the purified d-trans- isomer of allethrin are also available
