Citation Insecticide

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
