Enstar® AQ product, a water-based formulation, features broad-spectrum, long residual control of whiteflies, thrips, aphids, soft-bodied and armored scales, mealybugs, leaf miners, glassy-winged sharpshooters, and fungus gnats. Enstar® AQ product is for use on ornamental plants in greenhouses, shadehouses, lath houses, and interiorscapes (i.e. atriums).
Enstar® AQ product is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that prevents target insects from maturing into adults. Once the adult insects come into contact with the active ingredient, S-Kinoprene, they lay sterile eggs.
Enstar® AQ product has been tested on many varieties of bracking poinsettia and other plant species with low or no signs of phytotoxicity. However, growing conditions and cultural practices vary and it is advisable to test on a small sample prior to treating an entire crop to observe for potential crop injury.
Complete foliage coverage is necessary for effective pest control. With conventional spray equipment, mix the recommended amount of Enstar® AQ product and water. Then, spray both the top and bottom of leaves, until runoff occurs. For other applications of Enstar® AQ product, follow the equipment manufacturer's specifications. Use Enstar® AQ product alone or in conjunction with Mavrik Aquaflow® insecticide for broad-spectrum control. For more technical information, see the Enstar® AQ product Specimen Label.
