How Shockwave 1 Aerosol Works
Don't mistake an aerosol insecticide for a weak alternative to sprays. Shockwave 1 contains several ingredients not only to kill the insects but also to provide residual control to break the reproductive cycle. These ingredients all work together and perform as well as any other insecticide on the market.
First, it contains NyGuard IGR, an insect growth regulator that prevents the insects from producing new generations. Second, it contains natural pyrethrins to target the insects' nervous system. Third, it contains a man-made pyrethroid known as bifenthrin, which paralyzes the insects and causes death within minutes or hours depending on the species.
Shockwave aerosol also contains piperonyl butoxide and MGK 264, two synergists that work in conjunction with the active ingredients. They don't do anything by themselves, but when they're combined with pyrethrins and bifenthrin, they increase their effectiveness, prohibiting the insects' enzymes from breaking down the insecticides in their bodies. Therefore, the ingredients work more effectively and provide optimal results in a single application.
Where to Use Shockwave Residual Aerosol
Shockwave 1 works anywhere insects have invaded interiors and exteriors. Because it works indoors and outdoors, use it to kill and to prevent infestations along perimeters of homes, businesses and institutions such as schools. It's ideal for use in hospitals and hotels, restaurants and groceries, and offices and transport vehicles. Apply it to cracks and crevices on sidewalks, exterior walls and decks. Some of the most common areas to use this insecticidal aerosol include:
