US: OHP launches new biological insecticide
Thuricide N/G, derived from a naturally-occurring bacteria, infects lepidopteran larvae and other insect larvae. Thuricide N/G contains the bacteria bacillus thuringiensis subspecies kurstaki strain SA-12.
The product is the latest of several additions to the OHP biosolutions segment of new tools and proven solutions for crops grown in greenhouses, nurseries, and the landscape— including vegetables and herbs. Thuricide N/G is approved for organic production and is OMRI listed.
“Thuricide N/G is another great tool in our biosolutions segment,” says Dan Stahl, OHP vice president and general manager. “We feel strongly that providing solutions for growers who use not only conventional, but other means of pest control, is of great importance to our industry as habits are changing rapidly.”
After a Thuricide N/G application, insect larvae consume the bacteria. Once in the insect gut (stomach) the cryotoxins are released causing the larvae to stop feeding and subsequently die within a few days.
Use of Thuricide N/G fits well into a pest control program utilizing beneficial insects or predators, notes Dr. Carlos Bográn, OHP Technical Manager.
Dr. Bográn notes Thuricide N/G should be used at the first sign of pest infestations for optimal results and in a rotation with products from different classes with different modes of action.
Thuricide N/G carries a 4-hour Restricted Entry Interval (REI) and Caution signal word.
