Molt-X Azadirachtin Biological Insecticide Nematicide - Qt works primarily as an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that disrupts the molting process in insects. Once treated with Molt-X, insects become sluggish, stop feeding and fail to mature and reproduce. Molt-X also acts as an insect repellent, antifeedant, and ovipositional deterrent. These multiple modes of action make it a highly effective tool for use in a resistance management program.
Molt-X Azadirachtin Biological Insecticide Nematicide - Qt is an emulsifiable concentrate containing 3% azadirachtin. While it is derived from neem seed, Molt-X is not a neem oil. It has a four(4)-hour Restricted Entry Interval, zero-day pre-harvest interval and is labeled for use on a broad range of turfgrass, outdoor shrubs, trees ornamentals and food crops, as well as on greenhouse ornamentals and crops produced in shadehouses and nurseries.
Other key product features of Molt-X are that it leaves no residue on plant foliage and flowers; has no phytotoxicity issues on most plants; is generally safe on beneficial insects and bees; and is compatible for tank-mixing and rotation with other registered inputs, including BotaniGard and SuffOil-X.
Molt-X joins these other BioWorks OMRI-listed products that can be used in both conventional and organic production: RootShield, MilStop, Cease, Mycotrol O and SuffOil-X.
Molt-X also acts as an insect repellent, antifeedant, and ovipositional deterrent; these multiple modes of action make it a highly effective tool for use in a resistance management program.
Molt-X should be applied early in the pest cycle to prevent the rapid build-up of pest populations. Apply when pests are first observed or when conditions are favorable for pest build-up. This product is safe for plants, mammals, and the environment. It is toxic to fish.
Rate : For outdoor crops, vegetables and ornamentals use Molt- at a rate of 8 to 10 ounces/acre and 15 ounces/acre for nematode control. The rate may be increased up to 22.5 oz/acre if pest pressure is extremely high or if plant canopies are very dense. For greenhouse, shadehouse, interiorscape and nursery crops use Molt- at a rate of 8 to 10 ounces/100 gallons.
