Dimilin® SC

Flowable Insect Growth Regulator

Dimilin SC Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) provides an effective means of controlling a variety of insect pests found in and around ornamental plants and in controlling larvae of sciarid flies in mushroom growing facilities.


Ornamentals: Dimilin SC can be used in repeat applications as a foliar spray in enclosed commercial structures only, such as greenhouses, shadehouses and interiorscapes. Dimilin SC is effective on foliar feeding insects like armyworms and lepidopterous leafminers. It also suppresses whiteflies when part of an IPM program.


Mushroom Production: For control of sciarid fly larvae, Dimilin SC is applied in the mushroom growing media where it will prevent the development of the larval stages of the sciarid fly.
