Sumithrin / Phenothrin Adulticide Insecticides
Sumithrin (d-phenothrin) are synthetic pyrethroids commonly used in mosquito control programs to kill adult mosquitoes.
Sumithrin / Phenothrin Adulticide Insecticides have been registered by the EPA since 1976 for use to control adult mosquitos and other nuisance insects indoors and outdoors in residential yards and public recreational areas. Use sites include in and around residential/domestic dwellings, commercial and industrial buildings, transportation vehicles, recreation areas, animal quarters, direct animal treatment (dogs). While there are no direct applications to food crops, d-phenothrin labels allow for applications to control mosquitoes over agricultural as well as non-agricultural areas.
Natural pyrethrins were developed for adult insectcontrol in the 1950s. This was soon followed by development of pyrethroids, including d-Phenothrin. Registered by the EPA since 1975, Sumithrin (the name brand for d-Phenothrin) has been used extensively throughout the world forprotection against public health insects, noxious household insects, stored grain insect pests and for dis-insecting commercial aircraft.
From simple nuisance control labeling, to aerial application, to water-based formulation, and now to crop tolerance labeling,the evolution of Sumithrin’s usage continues!
