Residual Insecticides for Insect Control
Pherotools Pte Ltd is the official Partner and Exclusive Distributor for PelGar International Ltd manufactured Insecticides and Insect Control Products in Singapore
PelGar International has developed and registered a range of highly effective insecticides. Most of the products contain at least two active ingredients which combine long-lasting and fast-acting effects, or have different modes of action, for the control of even the most difficult pest population. There is no such thing as a ‘universal’ insecticide which will perform perfectly against all pests, on all substrates and under all environmental conditions.
By designing specific formulation types for different problem situations, PelGar International is able to enhance the insecticidal activity of the active materials. Years of research and experience in Europe, the Near East, Africa and South America have enabled the PelGar team to produce some of the most robust and effective pest control insecticides available in today’s market.
Which Insecticide to use?
Residual spraying is effective against bedbugs, mosquitoes, cockroaches, fleas, ticks and other pests by spraying on their breeding, hiding and resting places.
With so many products with differing actives, concentration and formulation on the market, it can be a daunting task selecting the right insecticide product. Selecting the right tool for the job is essential in getting the best results. Not surprisingly this applies to product selection in pest control. Any understanding of the differences between the various active substances will help you make the right product choice for effective insect control.
PelGar insecticides are pyrethroid based with a range of formulation to fit each unique situations PCOs may face. These are all broad spectrum insecticides, however, the biology and behaviour of the pests must be taken into consideration as well as the environment you are treating.
There is no universal insecticide and the choice of insecticide and formulation is important. We at Pherotools understand this and are happy to help you pick the right insecticide for your pest control needs.
For Maximum Residuality & Convinience
Cytrol Forte WP
For maximum residual effect, we highly recommend Cytrol Forte Wettable Powder (WP) formulation as the product of choice against most pest problems and ideal for use as a residual against disease vectors such as mosquitos, flies, cockroaches and fleas. Cytrol Forte WP is a high concentrate 40% Cypermethrin powder, easy to store, transport, handle and mix offering excellent long lasting flushing and killing action against ants, cockroaches, flies, mosquitos, fleas, bed bugs etc. Cytrol Forte WP works by leaving a thin deposit over the sprayed area. Cytrol Forte WP can be used to treat porous (bricks, wood, concrete etc) and non-porous (tiles, ceramics etc) surfaces, remaining effective for several months – suitable for indoor and outdoor use. The long residual action means monthly spraying is not necessary, saving pest controllers money and improving profits. Cytrol Forte WP is excellent for treating cracks and crevices where pests like to hide.
For Excellent Residual Action with no visible deposits
Alphaban 10SC is a liquid concentrate containing 9.8% alpha-cypermethrin. Alphaban 10SC offers excellent residual action without leaving visible residues on treated surfaces. Excellent for indoor use. Similar to Wettable Powder (WP) formulation, Alphaban 10SC works by leaving microscopic microcrystalline layer on treated surface, highly effective on porous and non-porous surfaces. Alphaban 10SC is easy to mix, handle, transport and store. Alphaban 10 SC is formulated for the control of cockroaches, crickets, ticks, ants, flies, fleas, lice, fire-brats, silverfish, woodlice, centipedes and other crawling and (resting) flying insects. Alphaban 10 SC controls red poultry mite and ‘litter beetles’.
Most economical for treating large area
For pest controllers needing to treat a large area cheaply, emulsifiable concentrate products, we recommend PERFECT 50EC. PERFECT 50EC is easy to mix and do not leave visible deposits on treated surface (however, it might stain fabric and carpet). Emulsifiable Concentrates are the cheapest products in the market and the residual effect is not as long lasting as SC or WP formulations such as Alphaban 10SC and Cytrol Forte WP, usually only effective for 20-30 days.
