Controlling Mealy-Bug = No harmful MRL’s

Mealybug belongs to the family Pseudococcidae which classifies as unarmored scale insects found in moist, warm climates. Many species are considered pests as they feed on plant juices, house plants and subtropical trees and act as a vector for several plant diseases

Effective control of this sucking insect in lemons orchards has proven to be difficult close to harvest due to the limitations of insecticidal use (Maximum residue limits allowed by exporters). Nowadays, the problem is solved with a full foliar cover of Agri-Spray, Elicitor, Syn-G and Wettersticker mixture. Not only does this combination reduce the insect population drastically without disturbing pollinators in the vicinity, it also has no harmful MRL and recovers the mechanical feeding damage done by the insects in a few weeks – a win recipe indeed!
