Characteristics of the drug Inta-vir
The main active ingredient of the drug is cypermethrin, the concentration of which is 3.75%. This substance has a paralyzing effect on pests. Inta-vir is produced in the form of tablets or powder.
The drug belongs to the pyrethroid group. These are natural insecticides found in some Asteraceae plants. Especially these synthetic substances are found in representatives of the genus chamomile, chrysanthemum and tansy.
Pyrethroids, synthetic analogs of pyrethrins, quickly attack the nervous system of pests during contact with plants. In insects, under the influence of these substances, muscle spasms and convulsions begin. All this leads to paralysis and death of pests.
Plants resist pests and take less damage. Pyrethrin poses no danger to plants. This drug is characterized by its versatile chemical properties and fights lepidoptera, Homoptera and Coleoptera:
- Carrot fly
- Colorado beetle
- Potato ladybug and moth
- Cabbage whitefish and scoop
- Sorrel leaf beetle
- Bedbugs, etc.
A preparation based on pyrethroids has a negative effect on harmful and beneficial insects that pollinate plants. Therefore, the drug should be used with caution. Agricultural pests may be resistant to the substance. In this case, another drug should be used.
How to use a pest drug
To kill insects, you need to dilute a tablet or powder in 10 liters of water. Spraying should be carried out in calm weather when there is no rain. It is advisable to sprinkle in the morning or evening. It is important to keep the leaves wetted evenly. To do this, you can use a household spray bottle.
Only fresh Inta-vir solution should be used. If a solution remains after the spraying procedure, then it is prohibited to store it.
A good result will be if there is no rain for several hours after sprinkling. It is recommended to process crops such as pear, quince, apple tree one and a half weeks after the beginning of flowering.
It is recommended to repeat the procedure after 2 weeks. More than 3 chemical treatments are not allowed. In order not to cause addiction in some insects, you can alternate Inta-vir with other pest drugs.
Strawberries are best processed before flowering, while gooseberries and currants can be processed before and after flowering. For a 10-liter bucket of water, you will need one and a half Inta-vir tablets. Cherries and cherries should be processed before coloring the berries. One tree will need 2-5 liters of solution.
When pests appear on tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, cabbage, you can spray with the prepared solution. If the pests appeared after a while again, then the treatment with Inta-vir is repeated.
