From Mummy to Harvest, Execute Powerful Pest Control

Manage your orchard with a program that delivers excellent efficacy, greater efficiency and opportunity for higher marketable yield potential.

Flexible Multi-Pest Management for Your Orchard

Your almond, pistachio, walnut and pecan orchards face various stresses from bloom to harvest, so it’s imperative to maintain a pest management program that consistently delivers high efficacy and long-lasting residual. One-shot, one-pest products aren’t enough to control pests and combat resistance. Establish a management plan flexible enough to customize for your orchard and powerful enough to control multiple overlapping pests.

Tree Nut Insects

Navel Orangeworm
Navel Orangeworm

Navel orangeworm (NOW) is a primary destructive pest in almonds and pistachios, especially during hullsplit. Controlling NOW is essential to protect nutmeat and reduce damage from fungal infections, such as hull rot and aflatoxin.

Spider Mites
Spider Mites

Spider mites, including twospotted spider mites and Pacific spider mites, cause stippling and foliage browning by feeding on leaves. This defoliation can lead to lower nut yield and quality.

Peach Twig Borer
Peach Twig Borer

Peach twig borers burrow into growing tree shoots where they feed from the inside out, causing shoot strike or flagging.

Leaffooted Bug
Leaffooted Bug

Leaffooted plant bugs probe with their sucking, needle-like mouthparts into leaves, shoots and nutmeat. Leaffooted plant bugs can cause lower nut yield and quality. Affected nuts will blacken and drop. Similarly, darkened nutmeat caused by feeding is considered a defect during sorting.

Codling Moth
Codling Moth

Codling moths attack across generations, and different damage is caused by each generation, making them a serious pest for walnuts and almonds. Codling moth infestations feed on the kernel and leave frass at the point of entry.

Walnut Husk Fly
Walnut Husk Fly

Walnut husk flies may have only one generation per year, but infestations feed inside the nut, causing it to decay and turn black. Early season infestation may lead to shriveled and darkened kernels, increased mold growth and lower yield.

Build a robust line of defense against multiple overlapping pest populations to stay ahead of NOW and secondary pests to create opportunity for a higher marketable yield.

Don’t Just Control NOW

California tree nuts face differing pest pressures each year, and the ones taking the biggest bite from your yield typically take priority.

  • Status-quo management programs controlling a singular pest like navel orangeworm (NOW) won’t deliver your highest marketable yield potential.
  • Using multiple modes of action decrease insecticide resistance pressure. Pests like spider mites, peach twig borer, leaffooted plant bug and codling moth can cause unforgivable orchard devastation, especially alongside NOW.
  • For higher nut yield with better quality, you can’t afford to just control NOW.

Control All Pests, All Season

Customize worm control for your orchard. You are the expert in your orchard – you know what optimal timing and ideal formulation looks like for the pests in your crop.

  • Insecticide applications perform at their highest efficacy, with the most efficiency, when timed to control multiple pests.
  • A single pest should not dictate a pest control program when overlapping pest populations threaten to diminish your harvest.
  • A management plan with flexibility allows you to target pests before they cause costly damage.
  • Deliver more efficiency for fewer rejected nuts and a higher profit potential at harvest with proven insecticides that allow customizable control of pests in almonds, walnuts and pistachios.
