Ference™ insecticide raises the bar on season-long control of annual bluegrass weevil (ABW) with the active ingredient, cyantraniliprole. Since Ference systemically controls all larval stages of ABW, it provides superintendents greater flexibility of asynchronous ABW populations, which have multiple life stages present at the same time. In addition to ABW, Ference manages a broad spectrum of insect pests including billbugs, European crane flies, white grubs, turf caterpillars and suppression of chinch bugs.
Systemic control of all larval stages (first through fifth instar) of ABW
Stops turf-feeding damage within minutes after ingestion
Kills larvae within hours to days depending on insect life stage and species
Provides a new resistance management tool and rotation partner to help control pyrethroid-resistant ABW
