Neemix 4.5 Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) biological insecticide is for use on vegetables, fruits, turf (including commercial lawns), and other crops grown in the field mushroom houses. Neemix 4.5 Insect Growth Regulator kills/repels a variety of insect pests including whiteflies, loopers, caterpillars, leafminers, psyllids, mealybugs, and larvae of diamondback moths.
Neemix 4.5 Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) controls targeted insect larvae by interfering with the insects’ ability to molt. It is effective on all larval and pupae stages. It also reduces damage by repelling and deterring feeding of all stages of insects.
Neemix 4.5 Insect Growth Regulator is a proven IGR that kills insect larvae or nymphs before they become reproducing adults. Neemix is deadly to sucking and chewing insect pests, yet has minimal impact on non-target beneficial species. Neemix kills larval stages and nymphs by interfering with the insect molting hormone (ecdysone).
Whiteflies and other insects that feed on the undersides of leaves can be difficult to control with sprays directed only over the top of the plant. Neemix penetrates the plant by translaminar movement to provide control of these hard-to-reach pests. Repeated applications of Neemix build a “barrier” within the plant to prevent establishment of large pest populations.
