  • Foliar spray. Coverage is key! Apply the TetraCURB Organic dilution thoroughly on plant and crop surface using enough spray solution to achieve complete coverage, covering the top and bottom of the leaf until runoff. 

 

For best results, make sequential application at 5-7 days after the first application. TetraCURB Organic has no restriction or limitation on the number of applications per crop growing cycle per year, or the number of consecutive applications before rotating to a chemical with different modes of action.

Mode of Action

TetraCURB Organic kills and repels targeted pest populations with rapid knockdown thanks to thorough spray coverage and its multiple modes of action:

Repel: The rosemary oil is well-known to have a substantial repellent property. Due to its volatility, any mites or small, soft-bodied insects that are not in contact with TetraCURB Organic will be alarmed by the vapor exposure and rapidly mobilize to leave the treated plants via an avoidance behavior. TetraCURB Organic protects the crop from pest population establishment.

Suffocate: The high concentration of botanical oils in the blend provides the ability to suffocate the pests by blocking air from entering the pest spiracles, hence preventing them from breathing.

Paralyze: The key components of the botanical oil blend have activity as octopamine receptor agonists and acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, which are known to be effective neural control modulators in pest nervous systems and are capable of overstimulating and disrupting the nervous system, leading to pest paralysis.

CROP SAFETY - PHYTOTOXICITY

Due to the ever-changing varieties of plants, testing on all plants and crop varieties is not feasible. To ensure that TetraCURB Organic is compatible with the array of cultivars under your specific conditions, we recommend testing the product on a small scale and observing for phytotoxicity damage before making large-scale applications. Do not apply to plants or crops when the temperature is 90ºF or above.
