  • The allethrins are a pair of related synthetic compounds used in insecticides. They are synthetic pyrethroids, a synthetic form of a chemical found naturally in the chrysanthemum flower.The compounds have low toxicity for humans and birds, and are used in many household insecticides such as RAID as well as mosquito coils. They act by paralyzing the insect before it kills. They are also used as an ultra low volume (ULV) spray for outdoor mosquito control.
  • Allethrin is used mainly for the control of flies and mosquitoes in the home, flying and crawling insects on farm animals, and fleas and ticks on dogs and cats. It is formulated as aerosols (1 - 6 g/litre), sprays, dusts (1%), smoke coils, and mats. It is used alone or combined with synergists (e.g., 
    piperonyl butoxide and N- octylbicycloheptene dicarboximide) or other insecticides (e.g., fenitrothion). It is also available in the form of emulsifiable concentrates  and wettable powders.
  • Bioallethrin is more than twice as effective as allethrin and is mainly used to control household insects. It is formulated as aerosols and sprays with synergists and/or other insecticides (e.g., d-phenothrin or deltamethrin). A few tonnes of bioallethrin have been used in Spain for this purpose, according to Battelle. Since 1982, this aerosol formulation has been used in many other countries. The use of mosquito coils and electric mats has also increased considerably. 
  • D-Allethrin is slightly volatile at room temperature (vapour pressure 0.165 mPa at 25C) with a boiling point of 281.5C. It has low water solubility (5 mg/l at 25C) and the octanol-water partition coefficient (log POW = 4.95 at 25C) makes d-allethrin a fat-soluble compound.d-Allethrin is of low toxicity to birds. Toxicity testing showed that S-bioallethrin is toxic to fish and allethrin is toxic to honey-bees. Toxicology studies on d-allethrin generally showed low mammalian toxicity.
  • It is estimated that several hundred tonnes of allethrin, d-allethrin, bioallethrin, esbiothrin, and S-Bioallethrin are manufactured and used yearly throughout the world, mainly for the control of household insects. Formulations include concentrates, aerosol sprays, smoke coils, electric mats, and emulsifiable with or without synergists or other insecticides. 
  • With over 255 species of mosquitoes-believed to be responsible for spreading diseases such as malaria and dengue fever. India has a large and growing market for mosquito repellants. Many methods are used in households for dealing with thw mosquito menace. Coils were the first mosquito repellants to be introduced in the Indian market. 
  • In 1998, studies conducted by the Malaria Research Center found that none of the leading brands provided 100% protection against mosquitoes. In spite of the pervasiveness of the mosquito problem, the use of repellants in India is fairly low. it is estimated that only 16.4% of the households in all urban areas and 22.6% in the metros use mosquito repellants.
