ADAMA13 Trivor Insecticide Product Overview & Infographic13

Trivor ® Insecticide is a dispersible concentrate contact and stomach insecticide. It contains two active ingredients: pyriproxyfen, which suppresses egg development and inhibits development into adult insects; and acetamiprid, which causes feeding to cease and achieves mortality within 24 to 48 hours. 

Which crops can Trivor® be used on?

  • Citrus
  • Grapes

The local maximum residue levels (MRLs) for export crops will not be exceeded if Trivor® is used according to the label instructions. Alternatively, contact your ADAMA field team for more information.

Mixing instructions

  2. Half fill the spray tank with clean water. 
  3. Add the required quantity of Trivor® to the spray tank while agitating. 
  4. Fill the spray tank with water to the required volume while agitating. 
  5. Ensure constant effective agitation during mixing and application. Only prepare enough spray mixture for one day’s use. Spray mixture should not be allowed to stand overnight.

Is it safe?

Trivor® insecticide is not carcinogenic, however it is harmful if swallowed by humans, toxic to aquatic life and birds, and moderately toxic to bees. Do not enter a treated orchard or vineyard until the spray deposit has dried unless wearing protective clothing and gloves. Follow the safety precautions on the Trivor® label.


Trivor® is a Group 4A and 7C insecticide. Do not apply Trivor® more than twice per growing season in citrus and more than once per growing season in grapes. To prevent resistance, avoid exclusive repeated use of insecticides from the same insecticide groups and integrate cultural and biological control methods with chemical insect control programmes.
