Starbar Larvex SC 15
Larvex SC 15 is a concentrated larvicide insecticide based on Diflubenzuron, active against the larvae of ditters (mosquitoes, drips, culicoids), to be used for the treatment of large watery surfaces such as: rice paddies, ditches, ponds, puddles etc…
The product should be diluted with varying amounts of water depending on the surfaces to be treated and applied homogeneously by special sprayers.
- Pure diflubenzuron (g/l160.5) 15g
- Bathers, suspensions, inert support and water q.b. 100 g
In LARVEX SC15, diflubenzuron is micronized moist in order to obtain very small diameter particles held in watery suspension using dispersants, suspenders, bathers and thickeners. The resulting flowable formula is solvent-free, has reduced danger to operators, has no flammability problems, is not phytotoxic.
Main controllable weeds
Using LARVEX SC15, all larval stages of ditters (mosquitoes, drips, culicoids) can be controlled in their developmental environments.
The contact or ingestion of diflubenzuron prevents the larvae from performing the development necessary to reach the adult form, and leads them to death. Death occurs by inhibition of the activity of the enzyme chitin synthetase and the consequent impossibility on the part of the larva to form an efficient cuticulum at the end of the moult.
The insecticide action of LARVEX SC15 manifests itself relatively slowly and progressively; Generally the product takes 36 to 48 hours to make the insecticide action evident. The action continues for a few weeks (on average 3-4) depending on the degree of organic charge of the treated water.
Doses and methods of use
The use of LARVEX SC15 involves dilution in water and subsequent application on larval development outbreaks. The surface area of larval development outbreaks must be as uniformly affected as possible by the product.
