Resmethrin is a Restricted Use Pesticide (RUP) that is used to control flying and crawling insects in the home, lawn, garden, and at industrial sites. This insecticide is a synthetic pyrethroid that is very effective in house fly knockdown indoors, but is decomposed very rapidly on exposure to air and sunlight, limiting it's use in agricultural pest control.
