What Is Fipronil?

Fipronil is a broad spectrum insecticide which comes from the phenylpyrazole chemical family.. First registered for use as a pesticide in the United States in 1996, fipronil is a white powder with a moldy odor. What really made the pest control industry take notice of this chemicals outstanding effects was the product known as Termidor, developed by BASF. Noted as a game changer for termite control, pest control professionals and manufacturers would start using Fipronil in their own products.

Fipronil is commonly used to control ants, beetles, cockroaches, fleas, ticks, termites, mole crickets, thrips, rootworms, weevils, and other insects

Fipronil is used in a wide variety of pesticide products and in various formulations, These include foaming products, granular products, gel baits, liquid concentrates. There are over 50 registered products on the market which have fipronil as an active ingredient.

How Does Fipronil Work?

Fipronil is a dual-action insecticide in that insects can be affected by the chemical either by eating it or coming into physical contact with it. Fipronil works by disrupting the normal function of the central nervous system in insects. Fipronil sends the insect's nerves and muscles into hyperexcitation, leaving it unable to perform basic functions like grooming and self-feeding.  Fipronil is more toxic to insects than people and pets because it is more likely to bind to insect nerve endings.

What makes fipronil really stand out is that it is a non-repellent. Insects will walk through treated areas which contain fipronil and will be oblivious to the fact that the product has been set out for their demise. Fipronil is also a slow acting poison ingredient, allowing for affected pests to go back to their colony and spread the chemical amongst the population resulting in a domino effect with the entire colony being killed off.
