Coopex is an insecticidal dust or powder containing the active constituent permethrin. It is used to control a wide variety of household and business insect pests including cockroaches, ants, fleas, spiders, bed bugs, silverfish, wasps and more. Coopex is most useful when applied to areas where liquid insecticide sprays are not appropriate or desirable. These areas include cracks and crevices, wall cavities, roof voids, sub-floors, behind or under appliances, around electrical circuit boards, motors, etc. Coopex Dust can be applied using either a Hand Bulb Duster, or an Electric Dust Applicator - Refer to our Equipment section to find out more.

Coopex Insecticidal Dust Powder compliments liquid spray programmes and ensures a property is fully protected from insect pests. Liquid sprays cannot deal with every pest situation. Coopex Dust is an essential addition to a chemical armoury to ensure residual insect control.
Unlike a spray, the fine particles of Coopex Insecticidal Dust settle deep into cracks and crevices and other enclosed spaces that cannot be reached with a liquid spray.
Coopex Insecticidal Dust is a finely ground, ready to use insecticidal dust. This formulation ensures that the active ingredient is easily and uniformly distributed. The particles remain on the treated surface, rather than sinking into it. A treatment therefore stays active longer and is more rapidly picked up by insects.
