Fendona® – Quick And Effective Residual Wall Sprays For Protecting Public Health

Fendona® is a fast-acting pyrethroid insecticide that quickly and effectively eliminates disease-causing insects. With its active ingredient alpha-cypermethrin, Fendona® is one of the most effective indoor residual sprays for protecting public health in regions where malaria and other vector-borne diseases are present.

Benefits of Fendona®

  • Quick and effective
  • Long-lasting, residual control
  • Strong safety profile
  • Approved for food processing areas
  • PQ listed by the WHO for malaria control
  • Broad spectrum control

Fendona® works fast and lasts long. Its active ingredient works both on contact and through ingestion to eliminate insects in minutes. Fendona® is WHO PQ listed for malaria control and is also used in our Interceptor® long-lasting insecticidal mosquito nets.


Why use Fendona®?

Fendona® has a proven repellent action that keeps insects from getting too close to cause harm and is highly effective at low use-rates. Its low toxicity makes it safe for humans, mammals and the environment in general. The combination of low dose and strong safety profile makes Fendona® valuable for use against malaria-bearing mosquitoes. And its residual activity helps ensure that insects don’t return for up to nine months.


Using Fendona® as an indoor residual spray

As part of official public health programs, Fendona® is used for indoor residual spray treatments (IRS) and is applied to walls and other surface areas where mosquitoes land. Unlike many other insecticides, Fendona® works on virtually any surface because its crystalline particles adhere to bare wood, glass, brick, concrete and masonry. Fendona® is water-based, so it has no significant odor, doesn’t stain, and has a low skin-irritation factor, making it well suited for indoor residual spraying.

Fendona® on mosquito nets

Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLIN) can reduce malaria illness by 90 per cent in areas of high transmission. Widely used for malaria control, Fendona® is also the key ingredient in BASF’s Interceptor® bed nets.
