Product Overview

Transport Mikron is the newest non-repellent product from FMC solutions and combines two of the most powerful insecticides on the market:  Bifenthrin and Acetamiprid. Transport Mikron provides a quick knock down of over 30 pests, while at the same time providing a long term residual you can count on. These two active ingredients give you a one, two punch that even pyrethroid resistant insects cannot live through. Transport Mikron uses an exclusive microemulsion process which results in a particle size much smaller than other emulsifiables and micro-encapsulated solutions. This microemulsion formulation gives you clear, stable solution that will not stain or leave any residue. It also remains suspended well after mixing and does not need agitation if you are not using it for a long period of time.

This image depicts Transport Mikron and other leading competitors 24 hours after initial mixing. As you can see, competitive formulations exhibit visible signs of settling, indicating an uneven distribution of active ingredient throughout the sample.

Transport Mikron controls termites and household insects indoors and around the exterior perimeter of residential institutional, public, commercial industrial buildings, and non-commercial barns (i.e., non-commercial barns are storage structures not intended for housing livestock other than pets), and food/feed handling establishments.

When used as a termiticide, individuals/firms must be licensed by the state to apply Transport Mikron. States may have more restrictive requirements regarding qualifications of persons using this product. Consult the pest control regulatory agency of your state prior to using.

    I own a small pest control company in Ohio. Ohio is know to have the most sever bed bug issues in the country. Transport Mikron has allowed me to lower my treatment prices, avoid costly follow-up treatments and speed up the time I would need to spend at a stop. I specialize in Bed Bug treatments and I recommend this product.

    I work for a pest-control company in the southeast U.S., and we have recently switched to this product. Many products that are labeled for: spiders, scorpions, and other miscellaneous arthropods (millipedes, centipedes, etc.), other than insects, have a very hard time controlling them. That is not at all the case with this product. I'm constantly amazed when I go to some of our accounts and encounter the misc. arthropods that are dead and dying. The customers love it because there's no noticeable residue, and an extremely low odor (if any when mixed at lower levels). Expensive, but extremely effective.

    Worked almost immediately, very fast knockdown, and my new favor

    By Mayday on 08/23/2015

    I was previously using Temprid SC against bed bugs with good to decent results. Then after reading all the reviews I decided to try Transport Mikron. I was working on a heavy infestation of bed bugs, (bed bugs that had been multiplying for a year in a home) by directly treating with Transport Mikron onto the bed bugs. They were dying immediately, and now I'm awaiting the results of the residual. So far so good!

    The clear winner

    By Alice on 03/04/2012

    I had a friend of mine across the country swear by this stuff so she bought it for me from here to try and I was skeptical at first because there's no magic bullet yet for those darned pyrethroid resistant insects from hell (Orthene PCO is probably the closest currently) but well... Hell, this stuff is the most advanced and effective insecticide on the market. It absolutely DECIMATES any ant, bed bug, or termite population (along with pretty much any other insect) with its dual class pesticide action plus this stuff really is CLEAR. I can actually see the bottom of my B&G sprayer with a full tank of this but most importantly, ZERO callbacks with it. Never had a product do that before, at least not for long. Gotta buy a case or two of this stuff after I run out.

How is Transport Mikron a non-repellent product?

What is this "transfer" effect that is mentioned for acetamiprid? Trophallaxis? Also, I've heard that this product can be considered a non-repellant...but bifenthrin is a pyrethroid repellent. Does the particular formulation keep the bifenthrin from being a repellent?

When we called FMC and asked about your question, they told us that Transport Mikron is a non-repellent and that since the two compounds are combined in a lab, the bifenthrin is not in a repellent form.  They do not make this product by combining Talstar with Acetamiprid like what you might think.  They combine acetamiprid with bifenthrin in a molecular combination in a lab, and are able to form a non-repellent product.  It would be similar to water.  There is always hydrogen and oxygen around us, but when you combine them they make something completely different...water.

Which is better, Transport Mikron or Transport ghp for bed bugs?
According to the manufacturer, they recommend Transport Mikron for bed bugs over the Transport GHP. It has a better transfer and will do a better job at controlling the pest.

Is Transport Mikron safe around newborn or young kids under one year and pregnant females?

Children, pets and pregnant females should be kept out of the area where Transport Mikron Insecticide is being sprayed. It is safe for them to return to the area once the product has dried completely. This generally takes 2-3 hours.

Transport Mikron vs. Cynoff EC

What's the difference between these two products? There seems to be a lot of overlap in their targets.

Both products contain an active ingredient that is from the synthetic pyrethroid class of insecticides. Transport Mikron has a second active ingredient Acetamiprid which can offer a knockdown to pests that may be resistant to synthetic pyrethroids.
