Uses: D-allethrin is used mainly for the control of flies and mosquitoes in the home, flying and crawing insects on farm, Animals, and fleas and ticks on dogs and cats. It is formulated as Aerosol, sprays, dusts, smoke coils and mats. It isused alonely or combined with synergists(e. G. Fenitrothion) It is also available in form of emulsifiable concentrates And wettable, powders, synergistic formulations(aerosols ordips) have been used on fruits and vegetables, post-Harvest, in storage, and in processing plants. Post-harvest use on stored grain(surface treatment)has also been Approved in some countries.
