ATCVet Code: QP53AC51
The pyrethrins are potent, non-systemic, contact insecticides causing a rapid paralysis or “knockdown”, death occurring at a later stage. Their mechanism of action is considered to involve inhibition of the inactivation of sodium channels and the activation of potassium conductance at the neurone axon level. This results in prolonged action potentials, repetitive neuronal firing after a single stimulus and spontaneous trains of action potentials.
The insecticidal activity of the pyrethrins is markedly enhanced by the inclusion of cytochrome P450 inhibitors which decrease their rate of metabolism by the insects; piperonyl butoxide is a methylenedioxyphenol synergist for pyrethrins and related insecticides and is included in the formation.
No specific pharmacokinetic studies have been performed with the product.
