The active constituent in ENTRAP, methyl-cellulose, is derived from sustainably grown pine trees and all other components are approved for use in the production of food for human consumption. 

Ensystex Regional Director, Steve Broadbent commented: “More and more often, we hear consumers demanding low-toxic, natural pest solutions and ENTRAP enables professionals to deliver on this premise.”

ENTRAP employs a purely physical mode of action to trap, immobilize, and kill a wide range of insects and arachnids. It works like a sprayable sticky spider’s web to encase and rapidly immobilize the insects. 

ENTRAP is sprayed directly on to the target pest, where the unique polymer structure of the cellulose encases the insect and immobilizes it. This rapid retraint leads to the death of the insect. Since ENTRAP is poison-free with a purely physical mode of action, it will also just as quickly kill those insects that are resistant to traditional pesticides. And ENTRAP has no residual performance, so it quickly disappears from the environment.
