Product Overview

Microcare 3% CS Controlled Release Pyrethrins is the only microencapsulated pyrethrum product that provides quick knockdown and residual control in and around residential and commercial structures. Microcare 3% CS Controlled Release Pyrethrins offers 7 to 14 day residual control, Microcare 3%  CS Controlled Release Pyrethrins is perfect when you want the soft appeal of pyrethrum and need the residual of a microcap.

Microcare 3% CS Controlled Release Pyrethrins features SmartCap Microencapsulation Technology that disperses an effective barrier of insect killing pyrethrum capsules over the application area for increased pest exposure and residual. Exclusive SmartCap Technology creates a shell around the active ingredient (a.i.) that increases residual control by protecting it from ultra violet rays, weather, porous and greasy surfaces and absorption into soil or organic matter. It also acts as a barrier to diminish exposure to humans and pets while reducing plant phytotoxicity and staining. Through this technology we are able to construct tiny, mobile lethal doses of the a.i. that can attach to and move with insects. Microcare 3% CS Controlled Release Pyrethrins has several versatile uses including on animal applications.

    Different than the aerosol

    By Evan on 11/29/2016

    Seemed to have some effect when used, but not near as effective as the aerosol. It clumps up a lot in the sprayers and in the bottle. Not sure if all batches are like this.

    Longer lasting

    By Ron on 08/13/2017

    Microcare 3% is noticeably longer lasting than regular spray (Permethrin SFR). Works well in a difficult environment with lots of bug hiding places, maybe because there is more time for them to come in contact with it in their travels. The product does clump but it has not clogged the sprayer.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Is this considered a "Green" or all natural product?

If the active ingredient is pyrethrin, isn't this a natural based version of pyrethrum? Also, does the PBO break down quickly in sunlight?

A
Microcare 3% CS Controlled Release Pyrethrins is the only microencapsulated pyrethrum product but is not labeled as all natural, green or organic due to the inert ingredients. The product can be applied outdoors. It is a contact kill with some residual activity so it will not have as long of a residual in areas with direct sunlight over a longer period of time.

Q
How natural is the pyrethin in Microcare 3% CS Controlled Release Pyrethrin?

I was reading the other question and the answer was that it was the only pyrethrin not labeled as natural when as far as I can see its the most natural I've seen. The others are a synthetic toxic version. Am I mistaken about your product?

A

Microcare 3% CS Controlled Release Pyrethrines is the only microencapsulated pyrethrum available, but it is not all natural because it has PBO added in it.  It is designed as a contact product with residual activity for sensitive environments and customers. It has a CAUTION label with a favorable toxicity profile.
