What insects does cypermethrin kill?

Cypermethrin is a chemical that will kill many insects, including bed bugs, ants, fleas and many more.

Cypermethrin is what is known as a ‘broad-spectrum insecticide.’ This means that it works as a potent, fast-acting neurotoxin against many types of insect. As a result, cypermethrin is an active ingredient in large numbers of agricultural and domestic insecticides. Spraying cypermethrin over cracks and crevices will ensure that any insects trying to use them as entry points will soon die. It degrades quickly on soil and can also remain active on indoor services for relatively long periods of time. Cypermethrin is non-toxic to humans and is safe to use around pets. However, users should take caution if there are any fish nearby as cypermethrin is highly toxic to fish.


So what insects does cypermethrin kill?

When an insect comes into contact with cypermethrin or ingests it as an aerosol, the compound rapidly gets to work, interfering with nerve signalling in the insect’s body, leading to paralysis. Once paralysed, the insect cannot perform its usual biological functions and ultimately dies because it is unable to feed itself. Cypermethrin is regularly used by pest control professionals and is suitable for use indoors and outdoors. Gardeners can safely use cypermethrin as an insecticide in greenhouses and on ornamental plants, trees, and shrubs.

Cypermethrin can take up to 24 hours to kill its target, although exposed insects should remain paralysed until death. It can remain active on surfaces for as long as 90 days, so you don’t need to reapply it frequently. Cypermethrin will kill most types of insect you are likely to encounter in the UK. If you hire a professional pest control service, they will likely use cypermethrin to resolve any insect infestations they deal with.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
