Camille Landry posted this on Dec 5, 2016

pest control pesticidesIn the world of insecticides and pest control, one debate which has raged on for as long as there has been an industry has to do with using synthetic versions of natural defenses for all of your insect control needs. Both synthetic and natural defenses have a wide variety of different benefits which can’t be ignored. When you factor in what can be accomplished by using synthetic versions of natural defenses as pest control and the inherent benefits they bring, however, it appears very clear that synthetic chemicals may be the best option to take.

One of the most interesting things about synthetic versions of natural defenses like Pyrethroid insecticide products like PERMETHRIN SFR 36.8% and TEMPRID READY SPRAY actually has to do with how they work. Pyrenthroids are a synthesized version of a product called pyrethin, which naturally occurs inside the Chrysanthemum flower. This material is extracted from the Chrysanthemum flower and is used to make one of the strongest pesticides available on the pest control market.


What makes these products so equally strong is the fact that they have very direct effects on the neurological system of most insects. These products enter the body of a an offending pest and effectively kills it from the inside.


Using synthetic versions of natural defenses like Pyrethroid insecticide products has two very key advantages that shouldn’t be ignored. For starters, the synthetic version of these products has been chemically improved to last longer than the naturally occurring version of pyrethin. In essence, it has all of the benefits that you would expect from pyrethin but also lasts significantly longer.


One of the major downsides of using natural pyrethin has to do with its decreased effectiveness when used in direct sunlight, making it a limiting form of control for insect problems that you’re dealing with outdoors. Though the insecticide is just as strong as ever when you apply it, it rapidly begins to diminish due to the effects of the sun. Pyrethroid insecticide products don’t have this drawback.


The other major benefit of Pyrethroid insecticide products and synthetic versions of these natural defenses is that you can still achieve the results that you want, but you don’t have to use nearly as much of the product to do it. This translates into cost savings, making it one of the most effective and affordable solutions on the market.


Another benefit is that Pyrethroid insecticide products come in a number of different forms like granules, dust, liquid concentrates and more. These varying forms gives you a wide selection of options with regards to determining the best way to tackle the unique problem that you’re having.


Using synthetic versions of natural defenses as pest control is a solid way to control the specific type of problem that you’ve been having. Not only is the product extremely effective, but it also comes in a variety of forms so you can tackle your pest control issues in a unique way.
