DescriptionNatural pyrethrins and nonhalogenated synthetic pyrethroids are highly active and safe insecticides but are not photostable. A stabilized formulation was developed based on 1% of mixed diarly-p-phenylenediamines in an aromatic solvent. The synthetic pyrethroids bioethanomethrin and resmethrin as well as natural pyrethrins were protected from degradation when exposed to artificial and solar radiation. The photostabilization effect was also confirmed by bioassay against the western spruce budworm.
