Why we are pyrethrin free

August 17, 2016

Here at Sprinkler Magician chose to go the natural, safe, and effective route, and we have developed an integrated pest control system that does not use any Pyrethrins or Pyrethroids.

The reason for that is simple, according to a survey of U.S. poison control centers by the EPA, pyrethrins cause more insecticide poisoning incidents than any other class of insecticides except the organophosphates. Symptoms include headaches, dizziness, and difficulty breathing. Pyrethrins can trigger life-threatening allergic responses including heart failure and severe asthma.
