How Does AlliCURB MAX Work?

Modes of Action

  • The formula interferes with pests' sensing faculties, disguising the odor signal emitted by crops, keeping them away and limiting the chances of their establishment on crops.
Contact Effects
  • Dessication: The unique formulation allows penetration of the active oils, leading to the degradation of the waxy cuticle causing dehydration. 
  • Suffocation: Then blend of actives provides true pest suffocation by blocking air from entering the spiracles, leading to its death.
Olfactory Effects
  • Adult Mating Disrupter: AlliCURB MAX affects pests' odor-binding receptors that interfere with how adult male and female pests locate each other, decreasing the likelihood of successful reproduction.
  • Antifeedant Deterrent: AlliCURB MAX discourages pests from feeding, preventing future leaf damage.
