    Scimitar CS utilizes one of the world’s most potent and cost-effective synthetic pyrethroid insecticides for the control of turf pests. The outstanding insecticide is delivered by an exceptional Syngenta formulation that gives activity on a broad spectrum of pests both by contact and by ingestion.

    The active ingredient in Scimitar CS, lambda-Cyhalothrin, rapidly penetrates the insect pests’ cuticle and causes disruption of the nervous system by interfering with sodium channels – leading to a rapid knock-down of the pest. The damaging feeding activity of pests stops within minutes, followed by paralysis and death.
