    Pyrethrum and synthetic pyrethroids Pyrethrum and synthetic pyrethroids Presentation Transcript

    • INTRODUCTION
    • WHAT IS PYRETHRUM?
    • PROPERTIES Ecofriendly Quick action Low toxicity Multipurpose √ Repellant √ Flushing agent No development of insect immunity
    • MECHANISM OF ACTION
    • METHOD OF APPLICATION  Space spray  Kills adult mosquitoes & other insects  0.5 – 1 oz of solution/1000 cu ft of space  After spraying windows & doors should be closed for not less than 30 mins
    • SYNERGESTIC EFFECT?? Pyrethrum + DDT or Piperonyl (low toxicity) butoxide Common formulation of PYRETHRIN (Enhanced toxicity)
    • SYNTHETIC PYRETHROIDS Replace the natural pyrethrins 10 times more effective Examples: 1) Lambda cyhalothrin(cyano group) 2) Permethrin 3) Tetramethrin 4) Rosethrin 5) Proparthin
    • MECHANISM OF ACTION Affect CNS Prolong deactivation of voltage gated Na channel Prolonged excitation of fibres Lambda cyhalothrin-more neurotoxic -more selectivity
    • SIDE EFFECTSPYRETHROIDS Inhalation- coughing,wheezing,shortness of breath Skin- itching,rash,paraesthesia(lamda cyhalothrin) Neurotoxic effect-tremor, incoordination, increased body temp Long term effects-disrupt endocrine system -carcinogen(thyroid gland)
    • PIPERONYL BUTOXIDE Skin ulceration Eye irritation Long term-carcinogen
