It is known that Mashenka chalk deserves a reputation as one of the best means in the fight against insects. Created by order of the Ministry of Defense to preserve ammunition, this chalk has turned into an effective assistant for housewives, providing the opportunity to get rid of cockroaches, flies, ants, bedbugs, fleas and other pests. Its action is based on the poison it contains, which is transmitted between insects. The product is easy to use and can be used on various surfaces. The effect of the pencil is so strong that insects die in just a few hours, and the protective effect lasts for several months.

What does Mashenka Serebryanaya chalk look like?

This chalk has a random cross-section and is available in white, yellow, blue and purple. The packaging of the drug, like the chalk itself, is light - it weighs about 20 g. Usually the packaging is blue in color with an impenetrable polyethylene surface. The packaging of the chalk contains information about the dosage and methods of use of the product.

Chalk "Mashenka" is used if ants, flies, bedbugs, cockroaches and other insects are found in the room. Treatment with chalk provides a long-lasting effect – up to two months.

Interestingly, this product was created on the basis of a similar product made in China.

The composition of the chalk includes:

  • Deltamethrin;
  • Zeta-cypermethrin;
  • A piece of chalk;
  • Gypsum.

A special feature is that the insecticidal base of the product consists of only two substances - zeta-cypermethrin and deltamethrin, which are elements of the pyrethroid group of contact poisons. The product “Mashenka” is classified as toxicity category 4, as it is dangerous not only for insects, but also for people and pets.

As follows from the above, chalk and gypsum are the components that form the chalk and retain the poison on the surface, preventing it from evaporating or rubbing off.

Purpose and use of chalk

This product can be used to treat premises against various insects, such as bedbugs, cockroaches, ants, fleas, flies and others. The drug can be used by both pest control professionals and ordinary people.

To quickly get rid of pests, you should choose the right places for treatment. First of all, these are baseboards, doorways and corners, since these are the places where cockroaches prefer to breed. In the kitchen, it is recommended to apply chalk in the area of ​​cabinets, under work surfaces, near the stove and other places where insects can easily get to food. It is also important to pay attention to the trash and sink areas.

One of the preferred habitats of bedbugs is the bottom of furniture. Therefore, the use of Mashenka is recommended under chairs, tables, the backs of paintings, between wallpaper, etc.

Ways to use chalk

The substances in this product are ideal for eliminating cockroaches. To combat insects, various forms of this chalk are provided.

The product can be used:

  1. In the form of a chalk. This creates stripes two centimeters wide, which should be applied continuously along the entire perimeter of the room. This line thickness is effective in controlling cockroaches.
  2. In the form of crushed powder. This method is used if the surface is uneven. But you should be aware of the possibility of inhaling chalk, so you must use a respirator. Since the powder can be easily washed off, it is best used as a prophylactic.
  3. In the form of a solution. One powdered chalk requires about six liters of water. Despite the increase in the treated area, the effectiveness of the product decreases, so it is better to treat large areas weekly.

The action of the chalk lasts on average about seven days, so treatment must be carried out regularly and thoroughly until all individuals in the object are completely destroyed.

Thus, the undoubted advantages of chalk are the speed and efficiency of processing, but its high toxicity requires careful and careful use.
