Lush Orchards Brought to you by TetraCURB™ 

Elevate your control of orchard pests with our contact botanical oil-based miticide-insecticides TetraCURB. They control, repel and provide quick knockdown on spider mites, thrips, wooly apple aphids and other soft-bodied insects in apple, cherry and pear orchards.

Botanical oil-based miticides and insecticides are effective tools for any integrated pest management program. Botanicals are a great sustainable crop protection solution, as they often have multiple modes of action, which are less likely to contribute to pesticide resistance. But multiple modes of action aren’t the only advantage to botanical oil-based pesticides. Botanicals have a zero-day Pre-Harvest Interval (PHI) that provides flexibility during harvest time and peace of mind for your worker's safety. Also, some conventional products have an REI of a few days or more, which prevents growers from re-entering the field right away. Low REI levels in botanical products allow you to apply the botanical pesticide closer to harvest time.
