  • Etofenprox is a pyrethroid derivative which is used as an insecticide.
  • Etofenprox [2-(4-ethoxyphenyl)-2-methylpropyl 3-phenoxybenzyl ether], also known as

    solution. Before use, allow the solution to return to room temperature. Keep the
    solution in thermostated bath if room temperature varies by more than 2C.
