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.

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.
This is a product I use Daily as a Pest control Tech. I work the SEC 8 housing , And trust me this is the all around product. If mixed and applied correctly this will eliminate your issues . 5stars from me
Worked almost immediately, very fast knockdown, and my new favor

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!
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.
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.
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.
