Defiance 0.86 EC is an Insect Growth Regulator that provides control of whiteflies and scales among other insects commonly found in greenhouses, interiorscapes, on ornamental plantings and around the yard. Defiance works by controlling the lifecycle of the target pests and preventing them from hatching, maturing, and reproducing. When applied alongside an appropriate insecticide, pest control is much more efficient and long lasting by the inclusion of Defiance. Insect Growth Regulators should be a big part of an effective IPM strategy. Defiance 0.86 EC utilizes the same active ingredient, pyriproxyfen, that is found in Archer IGR, but at a rate of 11.23% AI compared to Archers 1.3%. Because of this, Defiance 0.86 gives you much more bang for your buck and will go MUCH further than a similar amount Archer.
-Defiance 0.86 EC is highly translaminar, meaning that it moves throughout the plant and quickly treats undersides of leaf tissue, not only the top of the leaf where it was sprayed.
-At almost 10x the strength of Archer IGR, it provides a very powerful insect growth regulator.
-Provides outstanding life cycle control and long-lasting residual results.
-Prevents egg hatch and maturation of insects from larvae to nymphs and so on, so would be beneficial for treating a large number of insects with such life-cycles including ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes.
