The product available in the UK, under the Provado trade name has
practically no strong smell, unlike virtually all previous insecticides
I have used. At least to my nose. It is available in powder, ready-made
liquid and dilutable liquid form. The latter has sunflower oil in it,
and gives an oily emulsion, maybe so it wets and clings to mealy bugs
and the like.
