Product Details

Provaunt Insecticide

European crane flies, annual bluegrass weevil (ABW), turf caterpillars (including armyworms, cutworms and sod webworms) and mole crickets all pose a significant threat to turf. Provaunt® insecticide controls all of these pests and more to protect your turf and landscape ornamentals.

Targeted insects are controlled by feeding on treated foliage through direct contact with spray droplets during application or by contact with active ingredient residue on leaf surfaces. Pests treated with Provaunt can stop feeding within minutes, rapidly reducing feeding damage. Once feeding stops, mortality typically occurs within 48 hours.

Provaunt is also an integral part of the WeevilTrakSM Optimum Control Strategy for season-long control and resistance management.
