Eliminate Many Insects Safely with Pyrethrum
Tuxedo Mosquito Control misting systems use pyrethrum. Highly toxic to mites and insects, but very low in toxicity to humans, it is an excellent choice for anyone with flying or crawling insect problems.
Pyrethrum is a natural insecticide that has been used for over a century. Farmers used pyrethrum on plants that needed protection. Because pyrethrum degrades quickly (within minutes to hours) this insecticide is highly safe for people and pets such as cats and dogs. Though, pyrethrum is not for use near fish or water as it can be toxic to fish and does not break down well in water.
How Pyrethrum Works
Pyrethrum is an insecticide that works on a wide variety of insects by attacking the nervous system. Pyrethrins, which are a part of pyrethrum, bind to cells that allow nerve signals in what is called the sodium channel, thus disrupting the nerves in their signals. The pyrethrins cause a nerve overload in insects which shut down the insects’ nervous systems and kills them.
