What Is Deltamethrin?

Deltamethrin is known as a synthetic ester pyrethroid, the man-made version of natural-occuring pyrethrum which is derived from the petals of the chrysanthemum flower. Deltamethrin has the ability to kill target insect either through coming into physical contact with the chemical or via consumption. It was initially used by farmers to protect agricultural and commercial crops as well as for fields and golf courses but has since been expanded for commercial and residential pest control.

Deltamethrin was first synthesized in 1974, being used to protect important agricultural crops and products such as cotton, coffee, maize, cereals, fruits, and other pantry foods. Deltamethrin is regarded as the most powerful synthetic pyrethroid and as such, is also viewed as the most toxic. Be that as it may, deltamethrin can be applied safely under the right guidance and taking of precautions.

Deltamethrin comes in a variety of forms--from liquid insecticide concentrates to dusts and granules and even granular formulations.

How Deltamethrin Works

Deltamethrin works exceptionally fast to treat a wide number of different pests. It’s a dual-action insecticide, meaning that it gets to work right away either by touch or via ingestion. Deltamethrin kills targeted insects via interfering with and compromising the insect’s central nervous system. This leads to overstimulation of the nerve cells which results in paralysis. With the insect unable to perform its regular bodily functions, the insect eventually dies through starvation. The poison can be spread amongst the colony, and through this transfer, an entire population of insects can die out.

Protecting the various routes of exposure can prevent these health issues. The use of safety gloves and face masks during the during the application of deltamethrin can block these various routes.
