If the plants in your garden or your indoor flowers suffer from herbivorous mites, Apollo will help solve this problem, which, when effectively applied to arachnids, is completely safe for bees and beneficial insects. We will tell you how to use this medication correctly.
Apollo is a contact acaricidal preparation that infects clutches and larvae of pests. It does not cause the death of adult ticks, but deprives them of their ability to reproduce, so the pest population is sharply reduced. Sometimes 1-2 sprays are enough to defeat ticks. The active ingredient of the drug is clofentisine.
Apollo is used against such ticks:
The optimal period for the application of Apollo is the time interval between the swelling of the buds and the beginning of the formation of inflorescences. It is at this time that pests are most vulnerable. Re-processing is best done after flowering. If, after that, mites are found on the plants, you will have to change the drug: during one growing season, Apollo can be used only twice.
First dissolve Apollo in a little water, then dilute the resulting solution with water to the desired volume. For the treatment of indoor plants, a solution of 2 ml of the drug in 5 l of water is prepared. Consumption of the preparation for the treatment of apple trees and other fruit trees - 4 ml / m², for garden strawberries - 3-4 ml / m², for grapes - 2.5-3.5 ml / m².
Apollo - a preparation of contact action, therefore, the plants must be treated carefully, trying to moisten the leaves on both sides with the solution.
The drug can be mixed with growth regulators and other insecticides, with the exception of those that have an alkaline reaction or which contain copper.
Apollo has a 4th hazard class, that is, it is slightly toxic to humans. It is also not dangerous for bees and other beneficial insects.
The recommendations below are intended only for FIRST aid, after which you should immediately consult a doctor and follow his instructions! DO NOT TREAT YOURSELF!
Store the drug for no more than 2 years away from fire, medicine and food in a dark, dry place at a temperature of -15 to +25 degrees. The storage place must be out of reach of children and animals.
Arkady: a good preparation, especially for the treatment of grapes from spider mites. There is enough protection for the whole season.
Olga: was treating trees in the garden with this drug when she discovered spider mites. Moreover, the first treatment was done before the beginning of flowering, and the second after its completion. The ticks were gone.
Sergey: it is bad that the drug is effective only against ticks, and to destroy other pests, you have to mix Apollo with insecticides. But the main plus is that there is enough protection against ticks for a long time.

Everyone knows that pests in the garden and in the garden greatly reduce the quantity and quality of the crop. And than just not have to fight with them. Wood ash, birch tar are used. But when even fitoverm does not help, one has to resort to "heavy artillery", using Intavir for processing. Of course, you don't want to poison planting vegetables with chemistry, but sometimes you have to. The main thing is that there is less harm from its use, it is necessary to apply it correctly, observing the exact dosages, and maintaining the waiting time.
The effectiveness of its use is marked by numerous positive reviews, although there are also negative reviews. I also like it, I especially have to use it in dry weather, when the cruciferous flea, literally bathing in the ash, still begins to devour young cabbage leaves.
Today I will tell you how to use Intavir correctly, and you yourself draw a conclusion whether you need to use this agent in the fight against insect pests or not.
One of these drugs is Intavir, an insecticide that can have an enteric effect on all kinds of pests, be it aphids, thrips, flies, weevils, moths, Colorado beetles, mealybugs, scoops, cabbage whites, potato moths, carrot flies, etc. It makes no sense to list all insects, since the broad action of the agent gives an effective result, with at least 52 of their species.
The manufacturer of the insecticide managed to achieve this effect due to the universal composition of the drug, the main active ingredient of which is cypermethrin. The concentration of this substance, which is 37.5 g / kg, is such that even in one treatment it is possible to get rid of most of the pests without serious damage to the health of the person who carries out the treatment. And all because Intavir was assigned the III hazard class according to the international classification, as a result of which the agent is officially considered moderately toxic.
As for the release form, at present in pharmacies there is a powder or tablets readily soluble in water, weighing 8 g. Regardless of this feature, the method of application for Intavir is the same, as well as its purpose, which boils down to pest control and prevention their appearances.
This insecticidal agent is available in the following forms:
Decis Expert, CE... In this tool, the amount of deltamethrin is 100 ml / l. the drug is produced in the form of a concentrated emulsion and is packaged in containers of 2 and 100 ml, as well as in containers of 1 and 5 liters.

The substance has a wide range of effects, which makes it possible to successfully fight various types of harmful insects.
The main substance that affects insects is beta-cypermethrin with a concentration of 50 g / l.
The drug is available in the form of a concentrated emulsion, which should be diluted with water before use.
The active substance beta-cypermethrin, which is part of the Kinmix preparation, is a synthetic pyrethroid, which is distinguished by a high speed of contact and intestinal action.
When the poison enters the insect's body, it affects their nervous system, causing paralysis with subsequent death. Distinctive is the fact that the drug Kinmix is used against both adults and their larvae.

Kinmix does not possess acaricidal properties, therefore, in conditions that are favorable for the reproduction of ticks, it should be used together or alternately with acaricides.
Kinmix is moderately hazardous to humans and highly hazardous to bees. Therefore, it is necessary to limit the flight of bees for 4-5 days in the border zone in the vicinity of 5 kilometers.
