Demand® 2.5Cs is a formulation containing microcapsules of lambda-cyhalothrin suspended in water. The slow release of the active ingredient provides long-lasting residual control up to 4 months depending on substrate and dose rate.
Demand® 2.5CS (capsule suspension) is a modern, high- technology insecticide developed for the most demanding pest controllers. Demand” 2.5CS formulation contains 25 grams/litre lambda- cyhalothrin to control a broad range of insect pests, both indoors and outdoors. These unique water-based formulations avoid the use of organic solvents and are among the most powerful insecticides available for the control of public health pests; such as mosquitoes, flies and other flying insects, and cockroaches, ants and other crawling insects.
Demand® 2.5CS uses state-of-the-art microcapsule technology to give a product that combines the ease of use of an emulsifiable concentrate with the long-lasting residual strength of a wettable powder. Tiny droplets of lambda-cyhalothrin are contained within microcapsules in a creamy white suspension. In use, the products are diluted in water and applied to surfaces using conventional compression sprayer equipment.
After spraying, the water evaporates to leave the microcapsules on treated surfaces. The active ingredient remains isolated from the environment within the microcapsules and this protection provides extended duration effect, of especially on challenging surfaces such as cement. Insects moving over treated surfaces pick up microcapsules on their bodies. Once attached to the insects, the active ingredient rapidly moves out of the capsule and into the insect, providing a rapid knockdown effect followed by quick kill.
Composition and WHO classification
After worldwide testing, lambda-cyhalothrin formulation is now registered and used in over 100 countries. It is approved by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the UK and the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) in the USA for the control of pest insects and is approved by the World Health Organization for the control of insects that are the vectors of diseases such as malaria and dengue fever.
Demand® 2.5CS formulation contains 25 grams of lambda- cyhalothrin per litre. In terms of its acute toxicity, it is placed in the lowest hazard category, “WHO Class III”.
