What is Pyrethrin Spray?
It is a contact insecticide made from a formulation of the natural occurring botanical pesticide pyrethrum. It is a powerful organic pesticide and works extremely well. We recommend this product as a last resort.
Pyrethrin is a natural plant derived substance that comes from the chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium "painted daisy," which is grown for production in Kenya, Ecuador, Rwanda and Tanzania. It is made primarily of an extract from the seeds in the flower head.
