Provaunt Insecticide | GreenCast | Syngenta

Product Overview

Quick Control of Turf's Most Damaging Insect Pests

European crane flies, annual bluegrass weevil (ABW), turf caterpillars (including armyworms, cutworms and sod webworms) and mole crickets all pose a significant threat to turf. Provaunt® insecticide controls all of these pests and more to protect your turf and landscape ornamentals.

Targeted insects are controlled by feeding on treated foliage through direct contact with spray droplets during application or by contact with active ingredient residue on leaf surfaces. Pests treated with Provaunt can stop feeding within minutes, rapidly reducing feeding damage. Once feeding stops, mortality typically occurs within 48 hours.

Key Features

  • Effective on many turf insect species at low application rates
  • Indoxacarb is effective on target insects with minimal impact on beneficial and non-target insects
  • Provaunt is extremely effective against mole crickets quickly providing greater than 90 percent control of young nymphs near the soil surface
  • The water-dispersible granule formulation can be applied as a foliar or broadcast spray and is rain-fast within two hours after application

Key Benefits

  • Provides control of late-instar ABW larvae and is an integral part of the WeevilTrakSM Optimum Control Strategy for season-long control and resistance management
  • Provides 90 days of mole cricket control targeted at large nymphs and adults, and is supported through the Provaunt Mole Cricket Assurance program
  • Bioactivated mode of action is a critical component of preventing resistance with pests like ABW to help ensure more targeted, effective control
  • With minimal impact on non-target organisms, Provaunt is compatible with Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs
