Klartan® 240 EW is a fast acting pyrethroid insecticide that controls difficult pests such as thrips and bollworm. It provides good residual control of target pests after application and is stable across a wide range of climatological conditions.
Klartan® 240 EW is effective at low dose rates with low toxicity to bees and predatory insects - in some countries it is even registered to control mites in beehives. It is therefore suited to IPM practices.
