Our Pest Management and Public Health experts are always listening to feedback. They look to understand the most common and difficult problems pest management professionals face every day. That is why every innovation is made to help them overcome these obstacles and succeed. Barricor® SP insecticide represents the latest innovation in liquid spray formulations, and all with no PPE.* It’s designed with the professionals in mind.
Effective on Complex Surfaces
It’s no secret that when treating perimeters, pest management professionals often encounter complex surfaces. At a microscopic level, surfaces that are familiar to us, such as concrete, wood and stucco, are quite varied and complex, with cracks and crevices active ingredients can fall into. To be effective, the active ingredient must be bioavailable for a passing insect to come into contact with it. If insects do not come into contact with the ingredients, they will not die. That’s where Barricor SP comes in.
The SP acronym in the Barricor SP name stands for solid particle, a completely new and unique formulation concept to arrive in the professional pest management market. SP formulation technology performs on complex surfaces like mulch, gravel and concrete, allowing the active ingredient to remain more bioavailable to pests. Barricor SP’s performance has been tested on different pests and various surfaces, and it shows outstanding results.
No PPE? No Problem.
We understand that finding and retaining a quality workforce is a big concern for pest management professionals, so we designed Barricor SP to be technician-friendly. Applications of Barricor SP require no PPE. While other bifenthrin-based products require PPE, such as long sleeves, goggles and gloves, with Barricor SP there is no hassle. Technicians can roll up their sleeves and get to work right away, saving time, money and aggravation. Technicians can roll up their sleeves and get to work right away, saving time, money and aggravation.

Affordable for Everyone
Because of Barricor SP’s unique solid particle formulation chemistry, bioavailability of deltamethrin to pests can be increased to achieve better efficacy compared to traditional suspension concentrates. Barricor SP is priced competitively to economy pyrethroid sprays. One bottle services approximately 128 homes at a similar cost per home to economy pyrethroid formulations. Plus, the same package treats the same number of homes as a bifenthrin gallon. Because Barricor SP’s solution is more effective, less packaging is required. And that in turn means less waste going into our dumpsters impacting the environment, giving you even more peace of mind. Innovation and sustainability are now affordable for everyone. Barricor SP shows that our commitment to lead and serve the industry is as strong as ever. Barricor SP shows that our commitment to lead and serve the industry is as strong as ever.

An Innovative Formulation
With an increasingly restrictive regulatory environment and an increasing cost of pesticide development, innovation and affordability are important. In addition to the long-term strategy of discovering new active ingredients with new modes of action, short-term innovation through formulation technology can be used to improve the performance of active ingredients.
With deltamethrin’s excellent safety profile and trusted performance, this fast-acting, broad-spectrum, nonirritating and non-repellent pyrethroid spray is a prime target for formulation innovation. Barricor SP’s solid particle formulation technology increases deltamethrin’s bioavailability by associating the active ingredient with an inert carrier material. These solid particles exude deltamethrin crystals, which enable several unique features:
- Increased bioavailability to pests.
- Enhanced product performance.
- Reduced penetration into rough, porous surfaces such as concrete, gravel, stucco, mulch, etc.
