The influence of solid preparative form was studied on the «GET Dry» insecticide based on alpha-cypermethrin and imidacloprid. The target efficiency as acute and residual impact was studied when agent was applied against the bedbugs (Cimex hemipterus), German cockroach (Blatella germanica), common house flies (Musca domestica) and larvae of the leather beetles (Attagenus smirnovi). The agent demonstrated strong acute effect (about 100%) when applied against the cockroaches, bugs, and flies. Moreover, the agent demonstrates the residual impact on the cockroaches, flies, fleas for 45 days, and on the bugs for 30 days. The slight insecticidal activity was observed when the agent was applied against the larvae. We studied toxicity of the agent, LD50, when swallowed (moderately hazardous substances, class III) and when applied to the skin (low-hazard substance, class IV) as well as studied its inhalation hazard according to its volatility С 20 °C, irritant action when applied to the skin (slight) and eye irritation (moderate). Sensibilizing action was not observed.
