Product Overview

Disrupting Pests’ Lifecycles

Citation® insect growth regulator (IGR) controls dipterous leafminers, fungus gnats and shore flies in production ornamentals and vegetables grown for transplanting.

As an IGR, Citation:

  • Disrupts normal larva growth and development
  • Interferes with the formation and release of essential insect molting hormones
  • Breaks pests’ lifecycles so they are unable to advance to the next stage of development and subsequently die

Key Features

  • Unique mode of action, cyromazine, in IRAC Group 17
  • Targeted control of dipterous leafminers, fungus gnats and shore flies with no known phytotoxicity
  • Low use rates and application flexibility

Key Benefits

  • Excellent rotation partner as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that includes other insecticides or biological control
  • Compatible with beneficial insects and easy on plants, especially during propagation, reducing the need for plant growth regulators
  • Can be applied as a spray or drench in indoor or outdoor production, as well as on vegetables grown for transplanting
