BugDefence™ provides formulations for both our Home Service Divisions as well as for our pest control professionals. We market and sell only registered or exempt formulations.
Permethrin is an insecticide (meaning that it kills insects) registered with the US EPA and first marketed in 1977. Permethrin falls under the classification of a pyrethroid. It is a synthetic chemical; therefore, it remains effective for longer periods of time than a Pyrethrum.
About 200 years ago someone living in central Asia discovered, by accident, that dried, crushed flowers of certain chrysanthemums were toxic to insects. Since then, pyrethrum has been used in many forms for effective, low toxicity insect control. However, because natural pyrethrum has almost no stability in sunlight, it is not used in commercial agriculture.
