US: Miticides expand to insecticides

FIFRA 25(b)-exempt botanical-oil-based contact miticides, TetraCURB Concentrate and TetraCURB Organic, are now labeled as insecticides for use in controlling a wide range of small, soft-bodied insects – such as aphids and whiteflies – on all crops.

Two-spotted spider mites, aphids and whiteflies are some of the most damaging insects for agricultural and horticultural crops. They are fast-breeding pests that infest indoor and outdoor fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants and damage the leaves, stems and fruits by sucking out plant juice. Such damage affects the quality, growth and yield of the plants, which leads to unmarketable produce and a negative impact on grower profit and farming performance. Kemin Crop Technologies is focused on addressing growers’ problems by providing products and solutions that go beyond mites to control other widespread pests, as well.

“We observed in lab studies that treating whitefly and aphid populations with TetraCURB achieved immediate knockdown with 94 to 100 percent control after only one spray application in 24 hours,” said Emily Fuerst, R&D Director, Kemin Crop Technologies. “We are extremely pleased to see how well TetraCURB performed on these small, soft-bodied pests and are excited to finally offer growers solutions beyond mite control.”
