SCHAUMBURG, Ill.  – Central Life Sciences recently announced that Zenivex adulticide has received approval from the EPA for mosquito control efforts over cropland and pastureland.

“Our mosquito control customers have been anxiously awaiting this crop clearance for Zenivex, and we’re excited that they can now rely on it for an even greater range of application sites,” said Larry Smith, Director of Sales for Central Life Sciences. “Zenivex contains a unique type of pyrethroid (Etofenprox) and does not contain PBO.
It is a non-ester pyrethroid which makes it especially effective against adult mosquitoes including those resistant to organophosphates.”

As a result of the approval, Zenivex may now be applied over crops (including row, tree, fruit, citrus, pasture and other areas where agricultural enterprises take place) or to areas where drift over cropland could occur. Zenivex can be applied to these areas by either ground or aerial application following label rates and directions.

The crop approval applies to both formulations of Zenivex, including Zenivex E20 and Zenivex E4 RTU. Both offerings are oil-based formulations designed for use in Ultra Low Volume (ULV) applications. Featuring the active ingredient Etofenprox, Zenivex offers quick, permanent knockdown of adult mosquitoes. For more information about Zenivex and to view the updated product labels please visit
