Pest spray is the number one weapon in the arsenal of a pest control expert. Without it, our pest exterminators would resort to less-efficient methods for pest control. A lot of pest sprays are available to consumers in the market. These pesticides, insecticides and even fungicides can be quite effective in dealing with the pesky critters in the long term. While these pest sprays are readily available, it does not mean they are harmless. Incorrect and careless application of these substances may affect the health of family, pets and the environment.
Professional pest controllers have access to industry-grade pest sprays. As a family-owned business, we understand the effect of some pest sprays on human health and the environment. At Masters Pest Control, we are committed to only using safe and environmentally-friendly pest control solutions. That is why our pest sprays of choice are Termidor and Pyrethrum.
What is Termidor and How Does It Work?
Termidor is a professional pest spray product that is formulated to deal with native subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites. These termite species thrive in the ideal Sydney climate.
Termidor works by using an advanced nonrepellent liquid technology that takes advantage of natural termite behaviour. This liquid is undetectable for termites as they cannot see, taste or even smell the solution. Termites will unknowingly come into contact and ingest Termidor, inevitably killing them.
The “Transfer Effect” that is observable in termites makes Termidor doubly effective. As termites are very social insects that live in large colonies. Through a process called trophallaxis, termites transfer food all throughout the colony. Termites will take Termidor back to the colony, feeding even the termites that have not been in direct contact with the pest spray.
What is Pyrethrum and How Does It Work?
Pyrethrum is our general pest spray of choice. It is an organic insecticide with key ingredients found naturally in nature. It is made from the plant Tanacetum cinerariaefolium, also called pyrethrum daisy, which is a species of the chrysanthemum plant family. The substance is found in the flower heads and is a natural pest deterrent. Pyrethrum can break down easily, making it one of the best environmentally-friendly pest sprays.
Pyrethrum works by affecting the central nervous system of cockroaches, mosquitoes, spiders and other similar insects. In low doses, this pest spray will cause a behavioural reaction that makes these insects avoid the area. In higher concentration, the spray will remove the insects’ ability to move and eventually kill them.
