US: XXpire WG insecticide — new chemistry advances insect control

XXpire WG insecticide is now available for purchase and use in 48 states. XXpire is a new ornamental insecticide with two new active ingredients that control both chewing and sap-feeding insects. It combines spinetoram and Isoclast™ Active, a brand-new class of insecticide chemistry, and is effective on 39 pests, including seven of the top 10 most troublesome ornamental insects.

Available for use in non-residential landscapes, nurseries and greenhouses, this advanced chemistry offers two modes of action and provides excellent knockdown. Isoclast is a recently registered active ingredient and the sole member of the sulfoximine class of insect control agents. Spinetoram is a spinosyn insecticide that offers good insecticidal activity and long residual control.

“We’ve created a new chemistry that belongs to a unique IRAC Group, giving landscape and nursery professionals an innovative way to control insects and fight resistance,” says Maureen Clark, Dow AgroSciences Turf & Ornamental product manager.

When used according to label directions, XXpire controls whiteflies, aphids, mealybugs, lepidopterans, lacebugs, certain scales and thrips, and suppresses spider mites. XXpire is also soft on beneficials and gentle on more than 300 plants, including more than 100 ornamental species.
