Deltamethrin is a pyrethroid insecticide. Pyrethroids are synthetic compounds made to mimic the pyrethrins that are isolated from chrysanthemum flowers.
Deltamethrin is a broad-spectrum insecticide that works by interfering with a nerve cell's ability to send a normal signal by jamming open tiny gates on the cell that need to open and close rapidly to carry the message. Deltamethrin can be found in a wide variety of products used in agriculture, on golf courses, gardens, and lawns, indoors, and even on pets.
Like all pyrethroids, prevents the sodium channels from functioning, so that no transmission of nerve impulses can take place.

Non-systemic insecticide with contact and stomach action. Fast-acting.
A potent insecticide, effective by contact and ingestion against a wide range of pests.
