DES-X can be used to treat plants prior to biological control agent release and to treat “hot spots” for pest control in greenhouses with subsequent release of beneficial mites and insects.

Ideal for use as part of an Integrated Pest Management program, DES-X is compatible with biological control agents, beneficial insects and beneficial predatory mites.

Application Instructions 

For field applications, apply 2% formulation, 2 gal of product/100 gal of water (4.07 lb. Tech/gal) at a rate of 75 to 200 gal/acre (6.10 to 16.26 lbs a.i./acre) using ground spray equipment.

For best results, commence treatment when infestation is first noticed. Thoroughly spray insect pests on plants with diluted product to wetting. Minimize run-off to reduced plant injury on sensitive plants. DES-X is a contact spry and is effective in its liquid state. Pests need to be contacted with spray solution to be effective. Efforts should be made to thoroughly reach all plant parts, including the undersides of leaves.

Repeat treatment every one to two weeks as needed. Apply to a maximum of three consecutive applications to ensure plant injury does not occur. Additional applications may be possible if previous experience with repeat applications of the product under the same conditions have not produced plant injury.

DES-X may be used on edible crops up to and including day of harvest after a minimum spray interval of 12 hours.
