NIMITZ®  480 EC

General Info

HOW IT WORKS

Fluensulfone is a true nematicide that kills the target by contact, rather than temporary paralysis activity as seen with older organophosphate and carbamate chemistry. NIMITZ® 480 EC has rapid activity. After one hour of exposure, nematodes cease feeding, become paralyzed and complete mortality is achieved within 24 – 72 hours. Any nematode eggs laid afterexposure to NIMITZ® 480 EC are likely to be unviable, or if juveniles do hatch, they do not survive
