CASDELTA is a synthetic Pyrethroid containing 2.5% Deltamethrin as the active ingredient. Pyrethroids are synthetic chemicals modeled after the pyrethrins components of natural pyrethrum. Unlike some other pyrethroids (eg. Alphacypermethrin and Cypermethrin), Deltamethrin consists of one pure compound.
CASDELTA is a broad-spectrum insecticide for use on areas such as golf courses, ornamental gardens, lawns, outdoor perimeter treatments, indoors as spot and crack and crevice treatments and pet collars. CASDELTA can be used on various crops including cotton, corn, cereals, soybeans, and vegetables for pests such as ants, mites, weevils, beetles and all sucking insects.
CASDELTA is effective against insects via ingestion and direct contact, and in general, interfere with normal production and conduction of nerve signals in the nervous system of the insect. The active ingredient acts on nerve membranes by delaying the closing of its activation gate. CASDELTA is less toxic to mammals compared to insects due to mammals’ higher body temperature and larger body size.
CASDELTA is a fast acting contact insecticide and knocks down the insect almost immediately due to its injective mode of action.
CASDELTA is not expected to affect fish when used properly because it binds tightly to soil and breaks down quickly.
