Pyrethroids are a group of man-made pesticides similar to the natural pesticide pyrethrum, which is produced from chrysanthemum flowers.

Pyrethroids can be separated into 2 groups according to their chemistry. They can also be separated into generations with the first generation being the oldest and the fourth being the newest pyrethroids.
Type I pyrethroids do not have an a-cyano group, Bifenthrin, permethrin, remethrin, are a few types of this Pyrethroids. These were introduced in the 1960‘s and were a lower cost alternative to pyrethrin.
Type II Pyrethroids have a-cyano froup that enhances the insecticidal activity and molecular stability. Type II pyrethroids include cypermethrin, cyfluthrin, deltamethrin, fenvalerate, lambda-cyhalothrin. These chemicals provide excellent residual effectiveness, especially for controlling german cockroaches. Pyrethroid formulations include wettable powders, emulsifiable concentrates, microencapsulates, aerosols, dists, tablets, granules and flowables.
What makes them better than Pyrethrins?
Synthetic pyrethroids are more stable in light and have higher insecticidal activity than products made from chrysanthemum flowers. Because of this efficacy, only small amounts of pyrethroids need be applied to control pests (about 100 grams/hectare).
