DescriptionPrallethrin is a pyrethroid insecticide. Prallethrin 1.6% w/w liquid vaporizer is a repellent insecticide which is generally used for the control of mosquitoes in the household. It is also the primary insecticide in certain products for killing wasps and hornets, including their nests. Its mode of action is through contact, with rapid knock down effect. It acts on the insects nervous system.
