Abstract

DuPont™ Exirel™ and Verimark™ insect control contain DuPont™ Cyazypyr™ insecticide, the second active ingredient from the anthranilic diamide class of chemistry, and the first to control a cross-spectrum of insect pests including Lepidoptera, Dipteran leafminers, fruit flies, beetles, whiteflies, thrips, aphids, leafhoppers, psyllids and weevils, while conserving key predators and parasitoids.  Exirel™ and Verimark™ deliver a novel mode of action that impacts insect behavior by impairing muscle function.  Intoxicated insects stop feeding rapidly, resulting in excellent plant protection.  Exirel™ is designed for foliar applications to optimize leaf penetration and spray coverage.  Exirel™ applied at the major flush periods provides excellent protection against Asian citrus psyllid adult and nymphs and citrus leafminer for extended periods, generally 3-4 weeks.
