Cypermethrin insecticide is a type of synthetic pyrethroid insecticide widely used for agricultural and household purposes to control insect pests. It acts on the sodium channels of nerve cells in insects, causing repetitive firing of the nerves and convulsions in the affected insect. Cypermethrin insecticide is colorless, biodegradable and breaks down readily in soils and aquatic sediments, therefore posing minimal risk to the environment when used as directed. It is effective against a broad array of pests such as armyworms, corn earworms, Colorado potato beetles, and other leaf-eating insects and burrowing pest insects affecting crops such as cotton, grains, vegetables and fruits.
