In 2017, Central Life Sciences introduced a new pest control product, Diacon® IGR PLUS.
The product combines the residual control of the insect growth regulator (S)-methoprene and the insecticide deltamethrin in one product to control stored product insects.
“Diacon IGR PLUS offers the convenience of two active ingredients in one product to control insects in both adult and larval stages,” says Nancy Stratinsky, business manager-specialty agriculture division.
“It can be used for pre-bin treatments and equipment and warehouse applications, directly on grain as it goes into storage, and perimeter treatments.”
Convenient to Use
“Providing two active ingredients in one product makes it very convenient and eliminates the need for tank mixing,” she adds.
“It’s estimated that the U.S. agriculture industry loses about $2.5 billion in stored grain to insects annually, and this is another tool to control stored insects in corn, wheat, and barley.”
