Product Description

Knockdown and Preventive Control of Soil Dwelling Fungus Gnats, Root Aphids, Thrips and Springtails. This tiny, translucent brown to tan predatory mite naturally inhabits the top layer of soil where pest insect larvae and pupae dwell. Stratiolaelaps scimitus (Hypoaspis miles) is primarily used for treating and controlling fungus gnat infestations, but can also be released as a control measure for root aphids, spider mites and thrips. Female S. scimitus predatory mites lay their eggs in soil where the nymphs and adults feed on pests. Nymphal feeding focuses on eggs and immature larvae (instars) of fungus gnats in addition to pupal stages of thrips. If the infestation being treated is severe, use S. scimitus along with Sf Beneficial Nematodes and Yellow Sticky Traps. Consider using S. scimitus with A. swirskii or N. cucumeris if you are treating an active thrips infestation. Life Cycle & Optimal Conditions for Release: The S. scimitus life cycle lasts around 13 days and can accelerate or lengthen in different environmental conditions. Optimal conditions for S. scimitus performance are temperatures from 60-74° and high relative humidity. These conditions refer to soil conditions more so than atmospheric conditions as the Stratiolaelaps are most active in the growing medium. Cooler temperatures can have a negative impact on reproduction and development. Release rates: Some crops benefit when higher release rates are used preventatively.

The botanicals are all food grade GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) materials. SNS 244 RTU Natural Fungicide is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticides exempted under FIFRA section 25(b). Airborne 'pathogenic' or disease causing fungi get inside the plant either by contacting its skin (epidermis), or by growing in through the plant's breathing holes (stomata). Then they either poison and kill the plant cells before absorbing food from them or simply steal nutrients from the living cells. Some fungi live in the soil and enter into the roots. They can either block the water-conducting cells or kill them, causing the plant to wilt. In many cases the plant is seriously damaged or may even die. As a topical spray SNS-244 Natural Fungicide kills the fungus through a biochemical interaction on the spores. Some of the components of SNS-244 Natural Fungicide are also absorbed systemically by the plant, suppressing the life cycle of the fungal spores and nurturing the plant cells to increase the plant's ability to fight the disease.SNS 209TM provides a barrier for plants to protect them against damaging insects. This barrier is harmless to the plant but distasteful to mites and other insects. SNS 209 Systemic Insect Control is made up of 100% pure botanical extracts that are highly water-soluble. The botanical extracts are all food-grade GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) materials. SNS 209 Systemic Insect Control is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticide exempted under FIFRA section 25(b). How It Works Spider mites, whiteflies, nematodes, scale and other insects destroy plant cells by sucking out their fluids or chewing up the cell walls. SNS 209TM's unique formula works by allowing the plant to take up a small amount of rosemeric acid from the rosemary plant. As the plant distributes the rosemeric acid throughout its cell walls, a barrier is soon constructed. When an insect starts to suck or chew on the plant it comes in contact with the rosemeric acid and causes the insect to stop eating and move on.Kills fungus and mildew and is highly effective for the control of a broad spectrum of vegetable, fruit and ornamental plant fungal diseases. How it works: As a topical spray SNS 244C™ All Natural Fungicide kills the fungus through a biochemical interaction on the spores. Some of the components of SNS 244C™ All Natural Fungicide are also absorbed systemically by the plant, suppressing the life cycle of the fungal spores and nurturing the plant cells to increase the plant’s ability to fight the disease.AzaMax™ is a natural product with a broad spectrum of pest control. It contains Azadirachtin A & B as active ingredients and more than 100 limonoids. AzaMax™ does not use hard chemical solvents and fully uses food-grade formulation ingredients. It is an antifeedant and insect growth regulator that controls pests through starvation and growth disruption. Effectively controls spider mites, thrips, fungus gnats, aphids, whiteflies, leaf miners, worms, beetles, leafhoppers, scales, mealy bugs, nematodes and other soil-borne pests. Mix a tablespoon per gallon.Optic Foliar Transport is a revolutionary delivery agent that delivers the active ingredients within your spray into the plant through the leaves stomata, which increases gas exchange and allows plants to absorb spray solutions. Unlike traditional sprays, Transport can be sprayed on plants even with the lights on and without the need to adjust the spray’s pH.
