Plant growers always look for new ways to control their pest problems as insects continually invade crops and greenhouses. Thankfully, Syngenta produces different Beneficial Insect and Predatory Mite species for use in integrated crop management. ICM, a highly effective practice for growers across the globe, uses biological control agents in conjunction with or as an alternative to pesticides.
Pesticides target a variety of pest species both indoors and outdoors, from bothersome insects to weeds and fungi. When applied correctly and following the instructions for use, pesticides eliminate existing pests and can help prevent future infestations. Pesticides not only protect your home from spiders and other unwanted pests, but they also protect your plants from damage and your home's structure from termite invasions.
Spider mites, also referred to as web-spinning mites, infest home and agricultural areas around the world. They spin their webs on the stems and the underside of the leaves where they also lay dozens of eggs. This webbing makes it easy to identify an infestation and distinguish web-spinning mites from different mite species and other plant-damaging pests such as aphids.
Insects can really damage turfgrass and lawn ornamentals if an infestation goes untreated. Ants create unsightly mounds in the yard, grasshoppers attack grass blades and grubs devour grass roots, leaving behind dead patches in the lawn. The damage happens gradually over time, starting with small patches that give way to completely dead areas where only soil remains.
Termites cause massive damage in a short time, which creates the need for fast, effective treatment to prevent thousands of dollars in repair costs. Termite spray products, also known as termiticides, effectively treat termites and can even prevent future infestations from occurring.
