What is Chlorfenapyr ?
Chlorfenapyr is a pyrethroid-resistant chemical with a different mode of action (the way it works) than these traditional insecticides such as pyrethroids. Chlorfenapyr belongs to the pyrrole class of chemicals that has proven particulary effective against insects that have gotten resitant to other insecticides.
Chlorfenapyr-Mode of Action
Chlorfenapyr causes the insect to not produce enough energy to survive at the cellular level. This unique mode of action is called METI-mitochondrial electon transport inhibitor. Insects develop little resistance because it takes 24-48 hours for Chlorfenapyr to cause death (allowing them to pass on susceptible genes to the next generation). Chlorfenapyr is activated inside the insect (meatabolized into an active insecticide after entering the host).

Spectre 2 SC, with Chlorfenpyr 21.45%, may be compared to the popular non-repellent Phantom Insecticide, but more economical. As a non-repellent insecticide, Spectre 2 SC is not detectable to the insects (so the insects do not avoid it). It is a very low odor (almost odorless) and a long-lasting residual insecticide. It will kill many types of ants (see label), bed bugs, grain beetles, boxelder bugs, house crickets, roaches, spiders, scorpions and more. As these pest come in contact with it, they share it with other insects, spreading it to those that have not come in contact with it.Learn More
