- Unparalleled insecticide
- Total eradication of locusts
- Pronounced knockdown effect in controlling imago
- Potent effect on larvae of all ages due to a combination of two active ingredients that belong to different chemical classes and have different mechanisms of action.
- Shortest possible periods of effect and a long period of protection
- Three applications methods: ground application, aerial application, and aerosol spraying using an aerosol generator
Mechanism of action
Diflubenzuron has contact and enteric effect, inhibits chitin synthesis, and interferes with the formation of the cuticle during molting. It does not affect imago but interrupts the development of eggs and larvae (ovicidal and larvicidal effect). Larvae die during the next molting when their cuticle is ruptured and the body contents flow out. The ovicidal effect is observed when the eggs are laid on the treated plants.
Imidacloprid has systemic and acute contact enteric effects. It blocks postsynaptic nicotinergic receptors of the nervous system in insects. As a result, the transmission of signals via the pest central nervous system is inhibited, paralysis and convulsions develop, which causes the death of pests. Active ingredient exhibits high residual activity.
Protective effect period
Not less than 14 days.
Rate of exposure
High rate of toxic effect. The death of imago is observed within 24hours, larvae die within several days

Sites invaded with locusts
|Spraying during mass nymph hatching||
||2-3||Spraying during mass nymph hatching. Aerosol spraying "GARD"|
|Conifers||Needle-eating insects, including Siberian lappet, pine web‑spinning sawfly (Acantholyda posticalis), fox‑coloured sawfly, and gypsy moth||
Spraying when caterpillars and senior and junior larvae develop. Humans are not allowed to arrive at and stay in the treated areas until 20 days after treatment. Picking up wild-growing mushrooms and berries is prohibited in the treatment period.
Spraying in the period when caterpillars and junior and senior larvae and imago develop using the "GARD" aerosol adjustable dispersiveness generator. The effective operating range is 140–480m. The period when people may be located in the areas treated with the compound is not earlier than 20 days after treatment. Picking up wild-growing mushrooms and berries is prohibited in the treatment period.
Leaf-eating and sucking insects, including oak lace bugs, oak flee, and gypsy moth
Spraying when larvae and imago develop. Humans are not allowed to arrive at and stay in the treated areas until 20 days after treatment. Picking up wild-growing mushrooms and berries is prohibited in the treatment period.
Spraying when larvae and imago develop using the GUARD aerosol adjustable dispersiveness generator. The effective coverage range is 140 to 480 m. Humans are not allowed to arrive at and stay in the treated areas until 20 days after treatment. Picking up wild-growing mushrooms and berries is prohibited in the treatment period.
|Spring and winter rapeseed||Crucifer flea beetles||0,2||100-200||Spraying during in the sprouting period upon reaching the economic injury level||30(3)|
|Turnip sawfly, rapeseed beetle, cabbage seedpod weevil||0,2||200-400||Spraying during in the growing period|
(А) - aerial application
Warning! People may be located in the treated areas notearlier than 20days after the procedure; the collection of mushrooms and berries during the treatment season is not allowed.
Application technique. Working liquid preparation procedure
Prepare the working solution immediately before use and use it on the day of preparation.
Fill the sprayer tank half full with water, start the stirrer, add the full dose of the product, and add the remaining water. Flush the product container with water several times and pour the flushing water into the sprayer tank. Mix the entire volume thoroughly.
For spraying, commercially available ground boom sprayers for the application of insecticides are used.
Prepare the working liquid at a stationary SZС-10 refilling station.
To prepare the working liquid, fill 1/2 of the spray tank with water, add the estimated amount of the product and the remaining water while stirring. Pour the water from rinsing the container into the sprayer tank.
Pump the prepared working liquid to the filling tanks of APT Temp mobile units and deliver to the treatment site.
Prepare the working solution and refill the sprayer at designated filling places in tanks equipped with mechanical stirrers that are to be deactivated later.
Recommended machine brands: An-2 aircraft and Mi-2 helicopter.
Compatibility with other pesticides
Effective when used alone.
The product is not phytotoxic for plants at the recommended consumption rates. At observance of the procedures for the product application, the cultivated plants show a rather high level of tolerance to the product.
Probability of resistance
Resistance is unlikely when alternating with insecticides from other chemical groups.
