Delta

 

Non systemic insecticide contains 2.5% (w/v) Deltamethrin in the form of  emulsifiable concentrate

Like all pyrethroides, it prevents the sodium channels from functioning so that no transmission of nerve impulses can take place. Non systemic insecticide with contact and stomach action.  Fast acting

- Highly capable of killing insects especially those resistant to organochlorine, organo-phosphorus and carbamate insecticides , and other pyrethroides

- Non systemic having a contact and stomach action, therefore the plants should be thoroughly covered during application

- Absorbed by the insects cuticle; hence rapid action 

- Stable and not affected by the different environmental conditions, nevertheless, it is rapidly degraded in soil therefore it does not contaminate the soil

- Has a short pre-harvest period due  to its low percentage of use . Also studies have proved that the level of Deltamethrin residue is low

- Toxic to bees, but exhibits a repellent effect .
