A new standard for enhanced season-long ABW control

Ference® insecticide is targeted to control all larval stages (one through five) of annual bluegrass weevil (ABW).

Product Details

Ference Insecticide

Ference® insecticide contains the active ingredient, cyantraniliprole, which will raise the bar on season-long control of ABW (annual bluegrass weevil). Since Ference systemically controls all larval stages, it provides superintendents greater flexibility later in the year when ABW populations are asynchronous. Ference offers a longer residual control than competitive products, and will provide increased and extended control of ABW through the enhanced Syngenta Optimum Control Strategy, found on WeevilTrak.com.

Ference also controls billbugs, European crane flies, white grubs, turf caterpillars and suppresses chinch bugs.
