PYRETHRUM - Nature's Own Insecticide
exclusively utilizes water-based Pyrethrum in our automated misting systems. Pyrethrum is a natural, botanical insecticide that is environmentally friendly and has several major advantages over chemically synthesized insecticides including its rapid breakdown in the environment and its lack of insect resistance.
Pyrethrum is extracted from a particular type of Chrysanthemum known as the African Daisy (Chrysanthemum cineraria folium). Oil is extracted from the seeds of these flowers. The seeds are then crushed and used to make mosquito coils burned in tropical climates around the world as a mosquito repellant.
Pyrethrum has been EPA registered for more than 3 decades and is the model from which scientists have derived numerous synthetic insecticides.
We have more information about Pyrethrum below:
Pyrethrum protects your family, pets, and yard from mosquitoes and other annoying insects in four ways:
Pest Managment - Read about Pyrethrum & How To Get Rid Of Rats
- Fast Knockdown and Kill - Pyrethrum affects the insects central nervous system causing almost immediate knockdown of flying insects
- Jamming - Small, residual amounts of Pyrethrum cause female mosquitoes stop seeking blood meals
- Activation - In small amounts, Pyrethrum stimulates the insects to flush them from their hiding places, causing them to come into contact with higher concentrations increasing the knockdown-and-kill effect
- Avoidance - Even in the smallest amounts, Pyrethrum causes insects to flee the area
MORE ABOUT PYRETHRUM...
(Chrysanthemum cineraria folium)is a perennial temperate plant with small white, daisy-like flowers from which natural insecticides, the pyrethrins, are derived. Traditionally, pyrethrum was produced in many African countries where hand-labor was used to plant, harvest, and dry the crop. Political upheaval, drought, and lack of an organized development and marketing structure resulted in unreliable pyrethrum supplies for U.S. manufacturers.
In the late 1980's,however, Australia began a pyrethrum development project and is now a major producer of the crop. This has helped to stabilize the industry. Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Ecuador still remain the primary suppliers of pyrethrum, however. Smaller amounts are grown in Japan, Brazil and India. The United States is the principal consumer of world supplies of pyrethrum. Demand for pyrethrum-based insecticides is on the rise because of its long safety record, very low toxicity, and rapid breakdown. Because of the selective and relatively small-scale use of pyrethrum for over 160 years, there has been relatively little development of insect resistance. As a result of these characteristics, in recent years the use of pyrethrum based products has increased dramatically on organic farms and for home insect control.
Pyrethrins are contact poisons which quickly act upon the nervous system. In small doses, insects are knocked down; the toxins excite the neurons causing convulsions. In the final stages of poisoning, the insect cannot coordinate its voluntary muscles (ataxia); the nervous system appears 'exhausted'. But insects can recover unless the dosage is sufficient to kill.
For pyrethrum to be fully lethal to insects, it is generally combined with a 'synergist', a chemical that enhances the pyrethrins action on the nervous system. The synergist may be as simple as vegetable oil or diatomaceous earth, or more complex like piperonyl butoxide.
Pyrethrins have low toxicity to mammals, because mammals can metabolize the chemicals. Pyrethrins breakdown in the presence of sunlight, moisture, or oxygen making the chemicals biodegradable. In the past two centuries of pyrethrum use, very few insects have developed resistance to these toxins.
Natural pyrethrum, despite its power and safety, has certain limitations. The fact that it is imported means it is comparatively expensive. Moreover, some insects - houseflies for example - are able to detoxify modest amounts of the poison in their bodies. These tend to recover from any but the heaviest doses. In addition, natural pyrethrum tends to break down in sunlight, rapidly losing its effectiveness after outdoor use. Researchers have dealt with the detoxification problem by combining pyrethrum extract with a liquid synergist, piperonyl butoxide, which fools the insect's metabolism so that it doesn't break down pyrethrum in the body. Mixed with this chemical, a small amount of pyrethrum can control insects effectively.
As for the tendency of the substance to degrade in sunlight, this has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Pyrethrum is considered biodegradable and is sought for sensitive applications like the post-harvest treatment of fruits and vegetables. Natural pyrethrum is so safe that the U.S. Government approves its use on such insect-prone foods as tomatoes, even while they are on their way to the supermarket or processing plant. And in 1946 the city of Amsterdam added pyrethrum to the municipal water supply to kill a population of insects that were threatening 'to choke the system. The insects were destroyed, while humans continued to drink, wash and cook with the treated water without suffering any harm.
Pyrethrum has long been preferred for household and agricultural applications. But recent research is revealing new power and new uses for this old and tested insecticide. Combined with a synergist, natural pyrethrum is one of the fastest-acting insecticides known. Even before it kills, it knocks down and paralyzes insects almost immediately. When it encounters pyrethrum, the insect is thrown into a state of nervous disorder. It runs from its hiding place and scuttles around erratically, or adopts a confused flight pattern. Both responses show that the insect has lost all control of its central nervous system. This contact effect is called activation. Recent practice exploits the activation effect by adding small amounts of pyrethrum to a routine residual agricultural formulation.
ACTIVATION - FLUSHING ACTION
Pyrethrum activates hidden insects, driving them from cover and into contact with the main insecticide. This "flushing" action has been most successful in the control of such hard-to-hit pests as the cotton bollworm and the gypsy moth.
Recently, researchers have identified a subtle effect that occurs even before activation takes place: jamming. The jamming phenomenon suggests new uses for pyrethrum in the battle against mosquitoes. To show how jamming works, you need only a cage full of voracious female mosquitoes and some extremely brave volunteers. Those who put their bare arms in the cage can expect to get some 20 to 50 bites per minute. But if the cage is exposed to trace amounts of pyrethrum for only five minutes and the arm is reinserted, no bites are recorded, even though the insects otherwise seem completely normal. Apparently small amounts of pyrethrum can jam the "black box" of the insect's food-searching mechanism: The insect forgets to eat as it were. Because of this effect, low-level pyrethrum applications have been shown to reduce the risk of disease carried by mosquitoes.
Insects detecting minute amounts of residual pyrethrum in an area will avoid or flee the area making pyrethrum an excellent repellant for mosquitoes and other insects.
There's more to pyrethrum's bag of tricks. The reason is not fully understood, but insects do not become resistant to natural pyrethrum. After decades of use, no insect population has ever developed significant pyrethrum resistance. Intense study of the pyrethrum molecule has produced the related synthetic materials, pyrethroids. But so far science has not devised a synthetic that combines the speed, effectiveness, activation effects and biodegradability of natural pyrethrum.
MOST COMMON MOSQUITOES
The house mosquito, the southern house mosquito, the Asian tiger mosquito and the yellow fever mosquitoes are commonly found in United States. House mosquitoes transmit various diseases. The are brown with white markings. They mostly bite at dusk or after dark. They rest during the daytime hours.
BUT WHAT ARE MOSQUITOES AGAIN?
Most of us have swatted or been bitten by a mosquito, but just because we have seen them, or killed them the details often escape us so we took some information off of Wikipedia Below describing what they are and all about below: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosquito
Mosquitoes are small, midge-like flies that constitute the family Culicidae. Females of most species are ectoparasites, whose tube-like mouthparts (called a proboscis) pierce the hosts' skin to consume blood. The word "mosquito" (formed by mosca and diminutive -ito) is Spanish for "little fly". Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and even some kinds of fish. Some mosquitoes also attack invertebrates, mainly other arthropods. Though the loss of blood is seldom of any importance to the victim, the saliva of the mosquito often causes an irritating rash that is a serious nuisance. Much more serious though, are the roles of many species of mosquitoes as vectors of diseases. In passing from host to host, some transmit extremely harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus and other arboviruses, rendering it the deadliest animal family in the world
Taxonomy and evolution
The oldest known mosquito with an anatomy similar to modern species was found in 79-million-year-old Canadian amber from the Cretaceous. An older sister species with more primitive features was found in Burmese amber that is 90 to 100 million years old. Two mosquito fossils have been found that show very little morphological change in modern mosquitoes against their counterpart from 46 million years ago. These fossils are also the oldest ever found to have blood preserved within their abdomens. Despite no fossils being found earlier than the Cretaceous, recent studies suggest that the earliest divergence of mosquitos between the lineages leading to Anophelinae and Culicinae occurred 226 million years ago.
The Old and New World Anopheles species are believed to have subsequently diverged about 95 million years ago.
The mosquito Anopheles gambiae is currently undergoing speciation into the M(opti) and S(avanah) molecular forms. Consequently, some pesticides that work on the M form no longer work on the S form. Over 3,500 species of the Culicidae have already been described. They are generally divided into two subfamilies which in turn comprise some 43 genera. These figures are subject to continual change, as more species are discovered, and as DNA studies compel rearrangement of the taxonomy of the family. The two main subfamilies are the Anophelinae and Culicinae, with their genera as shown in the subsection below. The distinction is of great practical importance because the two subfamilies tend to differ in their significance as vectors of different classes of diseases. Roughly speaking, arboviral diseases such as yellow fever and dengue fever tend to be transmitted by Culicine species, not necessarily in the genus Culex. Some transmit various species of avian malaria, but it is not clear that they ever transmit any form of human malaria. Some species do however transmit various forms of filariasis, much as many Simuliidae do.
Anopheline mosquitoes, again not necessarily in the genus Anopheles, sometimes bear pathogenic arboviruses, but it is not yet clear that they ever transmit them as effective vectors. However, all the most important vectors of human malaria are Anopheline.
The Wikipedia article talking about mosquitoes can be read in full here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosquito , we found this extra little bit to be very informative.
Mosquitoes are members of a family of nematocerid flies: the Culicidae (from the Latin culex, genitive culicis, meaning "midge" or "gnat"). Superficially, mosquitoes resemble crane flies (family Tipulidae) and chironomid flies (family Chironomidae). In particular, the females of many species of mosquitoes are blood-eating pests and dangerous vectors of diseases, whereas members of the similar-looking Chironomidae and Tipulidae are not. Many species of mosquitoes are not blood eaters and of those that are, many create a "high to low pressure" in the blood to obtain it and do not transmit disease. Also, in the bloodsucking species, only the females suck blood. Furthermore, even among mosquitoes that do carry important diseases, neither all species of mosquitoes, nor all strains of a given species transmit the same kinds of diseases, nor do they all transmit the diseases under the same circumstances; their habits differ. For example, some species attack people in houses, and others prefer to attack people walking in forests. Accordingly, in managing public health, knowing which species or even which strain of mosquito one is dealing with is important.
Over 3,500 species of mosquitoes have already been described from various parts of the world. Some mosquitoes that bite humans routinely act as vectors for a number of infectious diseases affecting millions of people per year. Others that do not routinely bite humans, but are the vectors for animal diseases, may become disastrous agents for zoonosis of new diseases when their habitats are disturbed, for instance by sudden deforestation.
