controls Thrips, aphids, blackfly, greenfly, caterpillars and white fly on organic flowers, fruit, and vegetables.
For use outdoors, in greenhouses and on pot plants throughout the season.PYRETHRUM 5EC is an emulsifiable concentrate prepared from pyrethrum – nature’s own rapid-acting insecticide.
Whilst dried Chrysanthemum flowers (chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium) have been available in Europe for 150 years and were sold in most chemist shops for flea and louse control, liquid concentrates containing extracts from this flower miscible with water and suitable for spray application to crops had not been registered for use by the Pesticides Safety Directorate until now.
Through the efforts of the Friends of Pyrethrum organisation a formulation using this natural insecticide is now registered and is suitable for use in Organic and non-organic farming, it kills insect pests quickly without leaving any toxic residuals. Approval by PSD and the Soil Association’s approval of Pyrethrins now means that Pyrethrum 5EC is available for immediate control of Thrips, Aphids, Blackfly, Greenfly, Whitefly,Thrips, Springtails, Caterpillars, Moths, red spider mite, Beetles and many other pest insects.
Pyrethrum 5EC has a wide range of contact action (non-systemic) against the majority of insect pests. Because of its very short persistance and low toxicity crops can be harvested 24 hours after application.
Application rate is 20ml per 5 litres of water.
