OHP has added two new insecticides to its portfolio — Pradia and Sarisa.
Pradia is a broad-spectrum combination product developed for control of both sucking and chewing insect pests on ornamentals.
Sarisa insecticide is for broad-spectrum control of insect pests on ornamental greenhouse and nursery stock.
Pradia has a combination of active ingredients — cyclaniliprole and flonicamid — that provide quick knockdown and lengthy residual activity of many troublesome pests including whiteflies, thrips, aphids, leafminers, armyworms, moths and caterpillars, loopers, plant bugs, Japanese beetles, lace bugs, and beetles including flea beetles.
“The systemic and contact activity offered by Pradia makes it an ideal choice for use on hard-to-control sucking and chewing insect pests,” said Dr. Carlos Bográn, OHP manager of technical services. “Plus, the combination of two active ingredients with overlapping spectrums of control will aid in preventing resistance to diamide insecticides on key pests such as thrips, whiteflies, and aphids.”
Compatible with parasitic wasps, predatory mites, and lady beetles, Pradia is ideal for use as a tool in an IPM program.
The active ingredient in Sarisa, cyclaniliprole, provides extended residual protection against pests such as thrips, beetles including flea beetles and Japanese beetles, armyworms, gypsy moths, loopers, plant bugs, lace bugs and leafminers.
A diamide insecticide, Sarisa provides quick knockdown and residual activity of sucking as well as chewing insects with its novel mode of action and has a 4-hour Restricted Entry Interval (REI).
The active ingredient in Sarisa assists in the conservation of many beneficial insects such as predatory mites, parasitic wasps, and lady beetles, notes Bográn.
