Effect Microtech CS PRO – Microencapsulated Insecticide against crawling insects

Effect Microtech CS PRO is a non-systemic insecticide with contact and stomach action, based on a combination of three different active substances.

All three active ingredients interact and improve product effectiveness.

The product has been formulated using microencapsulation technology to provide a product designed specifically for the urban and household environment.

A contact insecticide is especially effective against crawling insects. It is meant for the control of Cockroaches (Blatella germanica, Blatta orientalis), Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius), and Ants (Monomorium pharaonic).

Because of the added synergist, the microcapsules in Effect Microtech CS PRO do not sink over time but remain evenly distributed throughout the entire volume.


Benefits of Microencapsulation

Microencapsulation is a process in which tiny particles or droplets are surrounded by a coating to form small capsules.

In a relatively simplistic form, a microcapsule is a small sphere with a uniform wall around it.

The material inside the microcapsule is referred to as the core, internal phase, or fill, whereas the wall is sometimes called a shell, coating, or membrane.

Most microcapsules have diameters between a few micrometers and a few millimeters. Different purposes of microcapsule-based final products require different characteristics of microcapsules.

The size and shape of microcapsules, chemical properties of microcapsule walls, and their degradability, biocompatibility, and permeability have to be considered in the selection of raw materials and microencapsulation processes. The mechanisms of releasing encapsulated materials are planned in advance and depend on the purpose of microencapsulation.


Microencapsulated insecticides – especially for crawling insect control

The primary reason for microencapsulation is found to be either for sustained or prolonged release of an active ingredient. This technique has been widely used for delayed onset of symptoms, and targeted delivery of the actives, masking taste and odor of active ingredients, it reduces mammalian toxicity and increases safety to non-target organisms.

The actives, such as natural pyrethrum, which are sensitive to sunlight or moisture can be stabilized by microencapsulation.

Because there is controlled release from capsules, fewer treatments are needed and that is why the product is also more user-friendly.


Elimination of the population

The microcapsules are in diameter from 5 to 15μm and are obtained by the process of polymerization.

The size of the microcapsules enables them to stick on the bodies of insects so that they then carry them into their nest, thus causing the entire insect population to be exterminated.

The microcapsules` wall role is to slowly release the active substances on the treated surface. They slowly degrade when exposed to air. At the same time, the microcapsules protect the active substances from environmental conditions like heat and moisture.

This mode of action, the size of the microcapsules, and their wall thickness enable a gradual and even release of the active ingredients, which ensure the product effectiveness up to six months on the treated surfaces (even on porous surfaces). Most of the active substances are inside the microcapsules, except 2% that is in the space between the capsules, which ensures the fast action.

But most important is to remember and know that having the right formulation is key to long-lasting, safe, and effective protection against insects.


Extremely long-lasting effect

Effect Microtech CS PRO achieves an extremely long-lasting effect for up to six months.

Effect Microtech CS PRO is used to fight crawling insects at locations where these crawling insects occur/move – along cracks in the wall, at the bottom edges id inside walls and furniture. Moreover, the product can also be used on the outer walls of buildings. The effectiveness of the product can be seen in the first 24 hours.
