BIOVECTROL® 20EM is a new concept; environmental and eco-friendly water emulsifiable insecticidal formulations based on a unique active ingredient Etofenprox®1, a high efficacy and extremely safe insecticide and proprietary blends of certain botanical extracts as carrier and synergist.

BIOVECTROL® 20EM is specially designed for effective control of vectors and pests of public health importance while providing added benefits like disinfecting properties and yet has remarkably weak toxicity to mammals.

BIOVECTROL® 20EM has excellent and broad spectrum efficacies which offers rapid and effective control of vectorborne diseases such as those of Dengue Hemorrhage Fever, Yellow Fever, Malaria, Filaria, Chagas Disease, Encephalitis, Shigellosis, Trachoma and other Gastro-entero diseases carried by aedes mosquitoes, anopheline mosquitoes, synanthropic flies, triatomine bugs, cockroaches, fleas and ticks; etc.

By virtue of biodegradable and photodegradable properties of BIOVECTROL® 20EM, long term and repeated applications will not pose any environmental pollution.

 
 
Features
 
HIGH EFFICACY/LONG LASTING PROTECTION
  The high efficacy is further enhanced by the synergistic effect of the formulation. It is effective against a broad spectrum of vectors and pests including mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, triatomine bugs, fleas and ticks; etc. Furthermore it has excellent residual effect on wall surfaces and net fibers thus providing long lasting protection.
   
SAFE FOR MAMMALS AND ANIMALS
  It provides a safe and effective method of protection as it has no harmful influence to human and non-target organisms.
   
LOW IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENT AND TO NON-TARGET ORGANISMS INCLUDING FISH, BIRDS AND BENEFICIAL INVERTEBRATES – ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY
   
VECTORS UNLIKELY TO DEVELOP RESISTANCE
  Vectors that have developed high resistance to conventional insecticides will have no tendency to show cross-resistance.
   
DISINFECTING EFFECTS
  Its anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties as added benefits to its effectiveness in the control of vectors and pests of public health importance, providing a safe and hygienic environment.
   
PLEASANT ODOR AND NON STAINING
  Easily accepted by the community.
   
IMPROVEMENT OF LIVING CONDITIONS
  The reduction in larva and adult vector population coupled with long lasting protection (indoor on walls and net fibers) will consequently decrease man-vector contact, thus promoting a healthier, hygienic and safer living environment.

SOIL DECOMPOSITION
  a) Soil decomposition studies showed that the half-life of BIOVECTROL® 20EM is approximately 1 ~ 3 weeks in aerobic soils.

b) The leaching test on soils revealed that BIOVECTROL® 20EM was not leached into the aquatic environment.
   
BIOVECTROL® 20EM is thus proven to be both Environmental and Ecological Friendly.

Application Methods
 
Dilute BIOVECTROL® 20EM with water and mix homogeneously. The dilution factor and the interval of re-treatment vary depending on the field of application.

Vectors that are mainly exophilic, but tend to feed or rest indoors briefly can be effectively controlled by indoor residual spraying. Examples of indoor residual treatment will be residual spraying to walls, ceilings, undersides of furniture, outside eaves and porch.

For vectors that are strongly exophilic and/or exophagic, those that rest and bite outdoors; exterior spraying should be employed. Exterior space-treatments with cold aerosols are carried out using hand or vehicle mounted ULV equipment.

Other control methods, such as insecticide treated mosquito nets can also be employed. Treating mosquito nets and curtains has also proven to be an effective and long lasting strategy for repelling and killing biting insects. Impregnated bednet also has the controlling effect on malaria parasite development.

When space treatment is applied from outsides, residents should be encouraged to leave windows and doors open during application to aid penetration of the insecticide. There is no side effect on spray-men and the people living in the sprayed areas.
