Enstar AQ Insect Growth Regulator, a water-based formulation, features broad-spectrum, long residual control of whiteflies, thrips, aphids, soft-bodied and armored scales, mealybugs, leaf miners, glassy-winged sharpshooters, and fungus gnats. Enstar AQ Insect Growth Regulator is for use on ornamental plants in greenhouses, shadehouses, lath houses, and interiorscapes (i.e. atriums).
Enstar AQ is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that prevents target insects from maturing into adults. Once the adult insects come into contact with the active ingredient, S-Kinoprene, they lay sterile eggs.
Enstar AQ Insect Growth Regulator has been tested on many varieties of bracking poinsettia and other plant species with low or no signs of phytotoxicity. However, growing conditions and cultural practices vary and it is advisable to test on a small sample prior to treating an entire crop to observe for potential crop injury.
Complete foliage coverage is necessary for effective pest control. With conventional spray equipment, mix the recommended amount of Enstar AQ Insect Growth Regulator and water. Then, spray both the top and bottom of leaves, until runoff occurs. For other applications of Enstar AQ product, follow the equipment manufacturer's specifications. Use Enstar AQ Insect Growth Regulator alone or in conjunction with Mavrik Aquaflow insecticide for broad-spectrum control.
