Fendona® - Quick and effective residual wall sprays
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.
Fendona® works fast and lasts long. Its active ingredient works both on contact and through ingestion to eliminate insects in minutes. Fendona® is recommended by the World Health Organization for malaria control and is also used in our Interceptor® long-lasting insecticidal mosquito nets.
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. In fact, Fendona® is approved for professional use in kitchens, restaurants and food storage and processing areas. The combination of low dose and strong safety profile has placed Fendona® high on the World Health Organization’s list of recommended insecticides for use against malaria-bearing mosquitoes. And its residual activity helps ensure that insects don’t return for up to nine months.
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.
Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLIN) can reduce malaria illness by 90 per cent in areas of high transmission. Recommended by the World Health Organization for use in malaria control, Fendona® is also the key ingredient in BASF’s Interceptor® bed nets.
The control of mosquitoes and other disease-carrying vectors is a top public health priority, but Fendona® is also used by pest management professionals around the globe to control a wide spectrum of other insects, including nuisance pests such as flies, cockroaches, bedbugs and fleas.
