Non toxic ampholytic surfactants and sequesterants 7,81%
Cypermethrin 0,25%
Non-toxic excipients and water to balance

INDICATIONS

A long acting biocide and insecticide combination to disinfect and repel insects
on hard surfaces and enclosed spaces. Good residual effectiveness was also demonstrated across the disinfecting and insecticidal spectrums. It is virtually non-toxic and non-irritating making it animal safe.

ANTIMICROBIAL ACTION

The antimicrobial action is based upon the core actives of the F10 compound used in other F10 antiseptic and disinfectant products. At the concentrations in the product F10 has been assessed as giving a > log’ (100,000 times) reduction in microbial counts against gram positive and gram negative bacteria, fungi, yeast and moulds. F10 has proven viricidal effectiveness against both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.

INSECTICIDAL ACTION

The insecticidal action is based upon cypermethrin (a pyreithroid). In the testing phases the indicator species used was the blow fly (Lucilia cuprina). As soon as the larvae were sprayed they immediately began to migrate from the test site and within 30 minutes were dead. Other tests on L. cuprina eggs resulted in a 100% kill. The product was equally effective against adult flies and showed a 77% kill in 15 minutes rising to 100% within 30 minutes.

Cypermethrin is a broad spectrum insecticide and is effective against other insects, e.g. biting flies, fleas, midges, mosquitoes and ticks.

RESIDUAL ACTION

Laboratory test showed the product was 100% effective at 5 days however during field trials which extended over two summer rainfall seasons residual action in some applications extended well beyond 2 weeks.

The product is water soluble and can be rinsed clear with water or alternatively will need repeat applications when exposed to rain water.
