What is Pyrethroids and how does it work?

The cyano group affects the body's cytochrome c and electron transmission system, prolongs the depolarization period of the spinal cord neuromembrane, appears repetitive action potentials, and excites spinal interneurons and peripheral nerves.

What is Pyrethroids used for?

Use of pyrethroid

However, due to the extensive use of pyrethroid pesticides, a variety of pests will become resistant. Therefore, when using pyrethroid pesticides, the following should be done:
1. To prevent the formation of pyrethroid fever, strictly control the frequency and dosage of application. Repeated use of pyrethroid pesticides will create favorable conditions for pests to develop resistance. Generally, only two or three pyrethroid pesticides can be used to kill insects during the growing season or one year, and the dosage of each application should be applied according to the instructions for use.

2. Reasonably rotate with other pesticides. Pyrethroid pesticides are used in rotation with other pesticides, which helps reduce the frequency of their own use and prevent pests from developing resistance.

3. Mixed with other pesticides. The mechanism of action of pyrethroid pesticides is similar to that of DDT, both of which interfere with the nerve conduction mechanism and cause pests to die. Mixing pesticides with different insecticidal mechanisms can greatly delay the emergence and development of pest resistance.

4. The fourth is to prevent poisoning. Pyrethroid pesticides are highly toxic to fish, bees and natural enemies.

What are the side effects of Pyrethroids?

Poisoning caused by pyrethroid pesticides is very common.
There are many reports of poisoning from pesticides such as organophosphate alone.

Among them, the cyano-containing pyrethroid pesticides have many types and large amounts, and are particularly widely used in vegetable and fruit planting. The food safety problems caused by their residues have attracted increasing attention.

Currently, conventional detection methods include gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography. These methods have low detection limits and high sensitivity, and relevant technical standards can be referred to, but the sample preparation is complicated, the equipment is expensive, and the operation technology requirements are high, and they are basically incapable of rapid preliminary screening of large quantities of samples.
