          Features & Benefits

          • A neonicotinoid alternative with the novel active ingredient cyantraniliprole, which belongs to a recently added chemistry class (IRAC Group 28) 
          • Controls multiple key pests as a spray or drench while strengthening integrated crop management (ICM) programs 
          • Four-hour REI (restricted-entry interval), no special personal protective equipment required for early entry and registered by the U.S. EPA under its Reduced Risk Program*
          • Provides extended protection through its systemic and translaminar movement to prevent pest populations from building to damaging levels
          • Labeled for use in greenhouses, nurseries and residential and commercial landscapes
          • Powerful resistance management tool that meets growers’ needs for effective, alternative chemistries
          • Broad-spectrum control that offers application flexibility and compatibility with many biological control agents
          • Short REI is less disruptive to work schedules while offering improved worker safety compared to other registered alternatives
          • Saves time and labor on repeated applications and reduces overall plant damage caused by insect feeding 
          • Convenient, versatile insecticide that can fit into any operation

          *A reduced risk pesticide use is defined as one which may reasonably be expected to accomplish one or more of the following; (1) reduces pesticide risks to human health; (2) reduces pesticide risks to non-target organisms; (3) reduces the potential for contamination of valued, environmental resources, or (4) broadens adoption of IPM or makes it more effective. Mainspring GNL qualifies under one or more of the above criteria.

            Whitefly and thrips are two of the most challenging pests in ornamental production. There are multiple species of each, some of which are known to transmit plant viruses. Prevention is critical to controlling these insect pests and stopping their damage before it affects the value and sale of the crop.
