mr natural® environmental group can remove pesticides, insecticides, and eliminate Pyrethroids quickly, naturally & permanently from your indoor environment.
A pyrethroid is an organic compound similar to the natural pyrethrins produced by the flowers of pyrethrums. Pyrethroids now constitute the majority of commercial household insecticides. In the concentrations used in such products, they may also have insect repellent properties and are generally harmless to human beings in low doses but can harm individuals with hyper or chemical sensitivities.
Pyrethroids are popular for insecticide because exoskeletons of insects are sufficiently porous to pyrethroids. They are axonic poisons and cause paralysis of an organism by keeping the sodium channels open in the neuronal membranes. The sodium channel is a membrane protein with a hydrophilic interior. This interior is a tiny hole which is shaped precisely to strip away the partially charged water molecules from a sodium ion and create a favorable way for sodium ions to pass through the membrane, enter the axon, and propagate an action potential. When the toxin keeps the channels in their open state, the nerves cannot de-excite, so the organism is paralyzed.
Pyrethroids are usually combined with piperonyl butoxide, a known inhibitor of key microsomal oxidase enzymes. Piperonyl butoxide prevents the insect’s enzymes from metabolizing the pyrethroid, which would diminish its lethality.
Resistance to Pyrethroids and Pesticides
Bedbugs were almost eradicated through the use of DDT up until the 1950s. Soon after DDT was banned, pyrethroids became the replacement against bed bugs. As of 2010 nearly all populations of bedbugs have evolved in that their nerve cells are impervious to pyrethroids, and are no longer effective in combating bedbug infestations as well as many other insect types and species.
Safety and Effectiveness
Pyrethroids are considered safe to vertebrates, which have sufficient enzymes required for rapid breakdown. In terms of LD50 for rats Tefluthrin is the most toxic at 29 mg/kg. Pyrethroids are however highly toxic to cats because they do not have glucuronidase which serves in hepatic detoxifying metabolism pathways.
Anaphylaxis has been reported after pyrethrum exposure, but allergic reaction to pyrethroids has not been documented. Increased sensitivity occurs following repeated exposure to cyanide, which is found in pyrethroids like beta-cyfluthrin.
Researchers have “found a significant association between piperonyl butoxide (PBO) a common additive in pyrethroid formulations” … “and delayed mental development at 36 months.”
Natural Hydroxyl Solution for Eliminating Pesticides
Pesticides are extensively used within most households and businesses. Our hydroxyl generators effectively oxidizes the pesticide chains removing all traces from many different families. The hydroxyls collide with each individual molecular compound and dismantle it into simple components like carbon dioxide, hydrogen, oxygen and water. The exhausted air from the unit not only supplies the hydroxyls to clean the ambient air but will be pesticide free itself, even though it is drawing in air contaminated with pesticides.
