Kontos is back and proving to be valuable tool


Can you name the only systemic up-and-down insecticide/miticide in the production ornamentals market? If you said "Kontos" you would be correct.


The up-and-down movement gives Kontos advantages in the battle against pests. Growers can spray Kontos and know that it is phloem- active so the active ingredient moves both up-and-down in the plant. Growers may also drench Kontos as the active ingredient moves up systemically through the roots for long-term control. Either as a spray or drench, Kontos provides thorough control of sucking insects such as aphids, whiteflies, and scales, and in addition, provides suppression of low populations of mites.


Kontos may also be used on vegetable transplants. Activity takes a few days so please be patient. Kontos can be used in greenhouses, nurseries, and interiorscapes.
