Watch out for whiteflies & thrips

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.

Mainspring® GNL insecticide is a powerful tool from the diamide class of chemistry (IRAC 28) that can be used to prevent whiteflies and thrips from establishing and reaching damaging levels in production. It provides extended protection as a drench through systemic movement (8-12 weeks of control) or as a foliar spray applied on a 14-day interval.

Mainspring GNL paralyzes insects so they stop feeding, which limits disease transmission and unsightly damage to foliage and flowers. Depending on the target pest, maximum mortality can be achieved in two to seven days.
