Pyrethrum 5 EC is a contact insecticide for use on various crops including tomato, aubergine, courgette & peppers. It is used for the control of all chewing and sucking pests including aphids (blackfly and greenfly), caterpillars, whitefly and red spider mite.
The pyrethrin active ingredient derives from chrysanthemum flowers (chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium) and has been available in Europe for 150 years in most chemist shops for flea and louse control. Liquid concentrates containing extracts from this flower miscible with water and suitable for spray application to crops had not been registered for use by the Pesticides Safety Directorate until now.
This natural insecticide is now registered and is suitable for use in organic and non-organic farming. Pyrethrum 5 EC kills insect pests quickly without leaving any toxic residuals.
