Pyrethrins and Pyrethroids

Pyrethrins are the botanical and organic insecticides extracted from flowers that belong to genus family of chrysanthemum widely available in Africa, Australia. They mark their presence in products used at household especially those used on pets, controlling mosquitoes, for crop protection in agriculture, in treated clothing. Their mechanism of action to kill insects is mainly through paralysing the target insects by alteration of the nervous system functioning. Pyrethroids are chemical and synthetic insecticides with their chemical structures derived from those of the pyrethrins and their mechanism of action is similar to that of pyrethrins. They are combined with synergists to enhance the pesticidal properties of the final product.
