Adept WSP Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) is an effective tool for controlling fungus gnats, shore flies, and foliar feeding pests found in ornamental crops grown in greenhouses, shade houses, and interiorscapes.

Adept WSP Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) Mode of Action

Adept inhibits chitin biosynthesis. The primary mode of action is by disrupting cuticle formation and chitin deposition occurring when insect larvae change from one developmental stage to another (molting). Studies show that without proper chitin development, larvae are unable to break the egg shells so they are unable to hatch or die soon after hatching. As treated larvae or larvae feeding on treated material grow, internal pressure on its weakened exoskeleton causes it to “rupture” and the larvae dies before it reaches the next growth stage. Adept has no effect on adult stages of insects.

Adept WSP Insect Growth Regulator IGR Key Benefits

  • Long residual activity (30-60 days) against fungus gnat larvae
  • Excellent fungus gnat control
  • Low use rates
  • Little to no effect on beneficial insects and mites

Adept WSP Insect Growth Regulator IGR Application

Adept may be applied as a sprench or drench.

Fungus Gnats/Shore Flies: Initial knockdown will typically take between 3 and 5 days. After that period, a number of emerging adults may lay eggs, but any new soil infesting larvae will be controlled for 30 to 60 days. Use 2 oz./100 gallons. Apply as a coarse spray (sprench). Drench rate is 1 oz/200 gallons water, apply using label specific drench volumes, i.e. 6 fl oz./6 inch pot.

Adept may be applied under Greenhouse benches and other non-crop areas. Mix 4 to 8 ozs. (4 to 8 bags) Adept in 100 gals of water and apply at rate of 10 - 30 gallons per 1000 sq.ft. of area.

Foliar Feeding Insects: Spray Rate: 4 – 8 oz./100 gallons
