Central Life Sciences’ Maverik Aqualflow
Mavrik Aquaflow Insecticide/Miticide provides immediate and long-term control for insect control on greenhouse flowers, foliage and cuttings, as well as on ornamental plantings, trees, shrubs and plantscapes.
The fast-acting formulation kills a broad-spectrum of greenhouse and nursery pests on contact or through ingestion. Maverik Aquaflow is non-phytotoxic, even on open blooms, which makes it ideal for all plants. Available in 1-quart or gallon tip-n-measure containers, Mavrik Aquaflow has flexible use rates to provide professional growers an economical tool for fighting insect infestations.
BioWorks’ BotaniGard And Mycotrol O
BotaniGard Mycoinsecticide is an effective biological insecticide that is used to control whitefly, thrips, aphids and many other insects. It is based on the highly successful fungus, Beauveria bassiana strain GHA, and controls the most troublesome crop pests — even resistant strains such as Q-biotype whitefly.
BotaniGard is versatile enough to use as a standalone, as a tank mix partner or in rotation with other insecticides. BotaniGard is available as a liquid (ES), a wettable powder (22WP) or in an organic version, Mycotrol O.
BioSafe’s AzaGuard Botanical Insecticide/Nematicide
AzaGuard is an OMRI-listed insecticide effective on more than 300 insect species. Its chemical formulation sets it apart from any other azadirachtin-based insecticide on the market today. AzaGuard’s combination of azadirachtin, food-grade ingredients and more than 100 biologically active liminoids provides a multiple mode of action formulation that is labeled for all greenhouse crops including fruits, vegetables and herbs.
AzaGuard acts as an insect growth regulator, anti-feedant and insect repellant. Tank mix AzaGuard with most commonly used chemicals for full crop protection.
SePRO’s New Preferal Biological Insecticide
New Preferal is a biological insecticide containing blastospores of a naturally occurring and virulent strain of the entomopathogenic fungus, Isaria fumosoroseus Apopka 97, which has demonstrated excellent control on all life stages (egg, larva, pupa and adult) of most common greenhouse pests.
Preferal’s unique mode of action means it is efficacious even on resistant insect pest strains, and it has little to no effect on beneficial insects. New Preferal will be a great addition to your Integrated Pest and Resistance Management programs.
Becker Underwood’s Nemasys And Millenium Beneficial Nematodes
Nemasys and Millenium beneficial nematodes help provide biological control of fungus gnats, western flower thrips and shore flies. Used as a stand-alone program or in rotation with conventional insecticides, Nemasys and Millenium nematodes are extremely effective and important tools in your IPM program for resistance management, worker safety and environmental responsibility.
Natural Industries’ NoFly WP Bioinsecticide
NoFly WP Bioinsecticide controls whiteflies, aphids, thrips, mealy bugs, fungus gnats and other insect pests on greenhouse ornamental crops. NoFly WP is OMRI-approved and is a naturally occurring fungus and a common pathogen of insect pests.
Formulated with the spores of Paecilomyces fumosoroseus strain FE 9901, the infection cycle is particularly rapid and effective at all stages of the insect life cycle.
Valent’s Safari Insecticide
Safari insecticide is a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown that provides long residual control on a broad spectrum of insects affecting high-value greenhouse crops.
