Pounce 500 Timber and Residual Insecticide is a contact and residual insecticide used to control a wide range of insect pests in various situations including some fabrics, outdoor areas and timbers.
Permethrin can affect insects if they eat it or touch it. Permethrin affects the nervous system in insects, causing muscle spasms, paralysis and death. Permethrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid family. Pyrethroids are synthetic chemicals that act like natural extracts from the chrysanthemum flower. Permethrin is a synthetic broad-spectrum insecticide classified as one of the oldest organic insecticides. While it is manmade, it resembles naturally occurring chemicals called pyrethroids that are naturally found in chrysanthemums, which have insecticidal properties.
Permethrin can kill a broad range of pests, such as fleas, ticks, cockroaches, flies, and mosquitoes. Permethrin and other pyrethroids work by overexciting the nervous system of insects, eventually causing the insect to die.
