Dry formulations can be divided into two types: ready-to-use and concentrates that must be mixed with water to be used as a spray. But most dust formulations are ready to use and contain a low percentage of active ingredients. Active ingredient is mixed with the dry inert organic or inorganic ingredient which is also known as the carrier. The size of individual dust particles of the carrier may vary.
Even though the dustable powders are one of the oldest and most basic formulations they have still some advantages compared to the newer more advanced formulations, such as:
- Ready to use, no mixing is required.
- Effective also in situation when moisture from a spray might cause damage.
- Require simple equipment for application.
- Effective in hard-to-reach indoor areas.
Effect Neopermin is an insecticide in dustable powder form that can be applied to different areas and guarantees complete insect eradication indoors.
Active ingredient used in Neopermin is Permethrin, with concentration of 0,5 % and is belonging to the class of pyrethroids. Permethrin is a synthetic chemical similar to the natural insecticide Pyrethrum which comes from the Chrysanthemum plant, but it does not break down under light and temperature and remains effective for longer periods of time.
Permethrin paralyses the nervous system of insects and thus kills them as soon as they are in contact with the substance or if they eat it. It is effective against all stages of insect growth, particularly larvae.
Effect Neopermin is effective against crawling insects such as cockroaches (Blatella germanica, Blatta orientalis) and ants (Lasius niger). It can be used in living quarters and storage rooms as spot or crack and crevice treatment. The product can be used on wood, concrete and smooth surfaces (glass, ceramic etc.) and should be applied in places which are difficult for children and animals to access (such as under, between and behind cabinets and in cracks and crevices around the edge of a room).
It is a contact, residual and stomach acting Insecticide, but it has also repellent mode of action.
With the combination of carrier type and the active ingredient, the product Effect Neopermin is very effective also in small doses. The prescribed dosage is 1g of powder to 1m2 of surface and with this amount it ensures the immediate effect, which is proven with fast knock down action. Products is also highly effective on vertical surfaces as it is very adhesive and adheres well to the surface. Due to the combined mode of action of the product it is effective even if insects only crawl over it.
Once applied on the surface the Effect Neopermin is 100% effective for up to 3 weeks.
