Cynoff Insecticide Dust Receives California Registration

Supplier News

Residual formulation targets bed bugs and persistent pests where they hide.

| January 20, 2011

PHILADELPHIA — FMC Professional Solutions announced that its Cynoff insecticide dust is now registered for use by pest management professionals in California. FMC Professional Solutions is a business unit of FMC Corporation.

FMC developed Cynoff dust to deliver powerful control of bed bugs and other persistent pests in areas where other insecticides aren’t as effective, especially cracks, crevices and voids. Cynoff dust contains zeta-cypermethrin, a new active ingredient designed for quick kill and long-lasting residual control. Cynoff dust also contains PBO, a synergist used to increase speed of knockdown and reduce the likelihood of resistance to pyrethroids.

Engineered with an anti-clumping formula and good float properties, Cynoff dust is designed to provide even insecticide coverage wherever it is applied. The product is available in a unique 16-ounce container, which can be used to apply the dust or to fill other application equipment, the company said.

“With appropriate safety precautions, Cynoff dust can be applied around electrical outlets and switch plates and void spaces where liquid insecticides are not recommended or effective,” said Chris Bowley, product manager for FMC Professional Solutions. “These areas are common harborages for bed bugs and need to be treated in order to provide thorough control.”

Outdoors, Cynoff dust is ideal for use as a residual treatment in cracks or voids where carpenter ants and stinging insects enter structures. Inside, PMPs can also apply Cynoff insecticide dust to create a lasting layer of control within wall voids.
