- n. A pyrethroid derivative used as an insecticide.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
At present the insecticides for net-treatment are limited to the pyrethroids and a pseudopyrethroid, etofenprox.
The pyrethroid-like (pseudopyrethroid) etofenprox is structurally different, but functionally similar to the conventional pyrethroids.
So far only the synthetic pyrethroids, and the near pyrethroid etofenprox are suitable for bednet treatments.
