Pyrethrum is a botanical insecticide produced primarily in the flowers of Tanacetum cinerariaefolium, a species of the chrysanthemum plant family.
The insecticide properties of Pyrethrum were documented in the early 1800s, but it is suspected that the flowers were used to kill insects a considerable time earlier. The first commercially available products were powders made from ground flowers and later crude oil extractions. Today, the refining of crude pyrethrum extract to remove the plant material, waxes, and more. is a highly complex process resulting in a very pure product from which most other plant properties have been removed.
Pyrethrum has been used effectively to control insects for decades and is non-persistent, decomposing rapidly in the environment. This rapid degradation of pyrethrum has resulted in few known cases of insect resistance, making it an excellent choice for the control of insects in a wide variety of settings.
