Bistar 10WP is based on an advanced pyrethroid from FMC Corporation - the global leader in pyrethroid technology. Bistar has been extensively tested and approved by several health bodies including the World Health Organization Pesticide Scheme (WHOPES). Its unique molecular structure results in negligible skin sensitization to humans leading to greater acceptance and lesser complaints. It is also less irritating to mosquitoes allowing for a higher mass control effect.
Bistar has a greater impact on vectorial capacity of mosquito population, which leads to a reduction in disease transmission. Multi-country trials have demonstrated that in addition to controlling Anopheles and Aedes spp, Bistar has a superior activity against Culex spp. as well
