Bifenthrin

Bifenthrin insecticides offer impressive knockdown and lasting residual protection against common mosquito species.


Bifenthrin is the active ingredient found in Onyx, Baseline, Bifen XTS and Talstar insecticides / atulticides.


Formulated with the power and reliability of bifenthrin, these insecticides deliver impressive knockdown and lasting residual protection against common mosquito species. In fact, research has shown that bifenthrin has a significantly longer residual than competitive pyrethroids and is less affected by light and soil degradation.


Because of its unique chemical makeup, bifenthrin won’t irritate mosquitoes like deltamethrin and permethrin can, causing the mosquitoes to avoid extended contact with treated surfaces. Trials compared the time mosquitoes remained on paper treated with various insecticides. Even at double the labeled application rate, mosquitoes lingered on bifenthrin-treated paper almost ten times longer than they did on paper treated with other insecticides.


Bifenthrin insecticides are effective pesticides to use against malaria and filaria vector mosquitoes. It is still effective when a resistance to other pyrethroids is found. Mosquito nets and indoor walls can be treated with bifenthrin to keep more mosquitoes away. 


Bifenthrin insecticide is available in both a granular and liquid form and can be used in conjunction with one another for best control. Mosquitoes prefer to rest in cooler damp areas most of the day and are most active during evening and morning hours when temperatures are cooler.


The sprayable liquid form of bifenthrin can be applied to shrubs and lower tree limbs where mosquitoes prefer to rest. Underneath decks and other damp shaded areas are targeted areas where bifenthrin can be applied as a liquid to reduce mosquito populations. The granular version of bifenthrin can be applied in mulch or pine straw areas where mosquitoes seek refuge from hot summer temperatures. These areas can be sprayed, but depending on size, the granular version may be less time consuming to apply.


Mosquito control with bifenthrin causes the mosquito’s central nervous system to become paralyzed when ingested or contacted. Bifenthrin is a synthetic pyrethroid. It’s a man-made pesticide that is very similar to the natural pesticide pyrethrum which is made out of chrysanthemum flowers. Bifenthrin is considered a newer generation insecticide that replace older chemistries such as Diazanon and Dursban. 


In addition to mosquitoes, bifenthrin insecticides achieve long-lasting, broad spectrum control of 75 pests, including ants, termites, cockroaches, spiders, bed bugs, fleas and ticks. And with its flexible label, Talstar Professional is approved in multiple use-sites, so you can use it indoors and out, in industrial, commercial and food-handling areas.

  • Indoors - including food-handling areas like restaurant kitchens
