I'll stick to Black Knight, active ingredient is d-phenothrin, at one time it was called Aircraft Airosol Spray and sold only to airlines and the military. It does have the lasting effect needed to kill the mites that hatch from eggs 2 months after the initial spray. d-Phenothrin is one of a class of pesticides called pyrethrin, which is known for its non-persistency in the environment and acute toxic effect on insects. It is manufactured by the Airosol Company of Neodesha, Kansas, registered with the Environmental Protection Agency, and sold under the trade name Black Knight Roach Killer. The release of pesticide into passenger cabins and cargo holds is approved by the World Health Organization. It will kill ALL insects so keep it away from your feeder insects.
