Bayer Confidor Insecticide - Ready to use

Bayer Confidor Insecticide - Ready to use

For the systemic control of insect pests on flowers, shrubs, trees, fruit trees and vegetables in the home garden

Overview

Controls aphids, mealy bugs, scale, thrips, whitefly and other sucking insects on ornamentals, roses and vegetables. Confidor belongs to a new chemical group, so it is excellent to use in a spray programme with other insecticides, as it controls pests resistant to older formulations.

Features

  • Systemic action – absorbed through the foliage and moves throughout the plant to control insect pests – works from the inside out.
  • Good for spot treatment of pests.
  • Low toxic, water based formulation.
  • Easy to use trigger pack – no mixing required, no mess.

How It Works

Systemic insecticide which targets sucking insects.

Ingredients

How to use

DO NOT spray if it is raining or about to rain. DO NOT spray when the soil is dry and plants are suffering from moisture stress.

PLANT PEST HOW TO APPLY
Roses Aphids Spray foliage thoroughly when insects are first seen or if insects re-appear. Spray underneath the leaves to kill pests which may be hiding out of sight. For hibiscus flower beetle, spray buds and flowers as needed. For longtailed mealybug, apply 3 sprays 2 weeks apart. For psyllids, spray at first sign and then a week later. For soft scales, spray in late spring or when small scales are first seen. Apply 3 sprays, 2 weeks apart. For best results spray in the morning when there is little or no wind and little direct heat from the sun. Avoid spraying blooms or flowers in full sun as slight petal marking may occur.
