Anti-Termite Additives in Sheathing and Jacketing Compounds

Though there are different solutions to achieve termite resistant, use of Bifenthrin as an active ingredient in the additive is common due to safety factors. Bifenthrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid family. Pyrethroids are manmade versions of pyrethrins, which come from chrysanthemum flowers. Bifenthrin is used on various agricultural crops and in homes. Bifenthrin was first registered for use by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA).
