Bayer proudly offers a full portfolio of insecticides for rotation in any integrated pest management program. Altus® can be used on a wide range of plants anytime during the production cycle for targeted control of harmful insects. Additionally, it has a cost-effective drench rate, favorable pollinator safety profile and a good plant safety profile.

Kontos® stands up to damaging insects, offering true systemic activity moving up and down the plant while providing broad-spectrum control.

Savate® provides fast knockdown and residual control of all stages of mites and whiteflies and has minimal risk for many beneficial insect species when used as directed. All three products also include control over Mediterranean whitefly biotypes that have developed resistance to neonics and growth regulators.

With this proven portfolio of products that work as hard as you, Bayer is here to help you enjoy the process and Find Beauty in Each Moment along the way. No matter the pest, Bayer has an insecticide greenhouse and nursery growers can count on to help keep plants beautiful and profits blooming.
