Exterminator is an organic insecticide
MODE OF ACTION
The naval oil contains terpenes of which d-limonene dominates. (The terpenes are surfactants used in degreasers and soaps to break down fats.) The ingredient d-limonene strips away a protective wax coating from the exoskeletons of insects and by penetrating the spiracles (breathing holes) will inflict cell damage to the cell membranes of the cuticle causing death.
Pyrethrum has a narcotic action on insects. Xterminator is formulated to allow the insect to recover from narcosis in order to allow the insect to emerge from cover when the d-limonene action will inflict death.
Xterminator is formulated to minimise damage to beneficial insects and by application intervals in extent of 7 days many will recuperate. Do not use more than 10 times a year on same location.
