Floramite SC ornamental miticide insecticide kills mites and stops infestations in greenhouses and landscapes. It has an effective ingredient that not only kills mites on ornamental flowers and trees but can also be used on marketable crops such as tomatoes. This selective miticide controls specific mite pests even on recreational sites and provides both quick knockdown and long residual control thanks to its mode of action. Because of its selective makeup, Floramite is nonactive against beneficial insects and works well in a resistance management program.

How Floramite SC Miticide Insecticide Works
Bifenazate, the highly effective ingredient in Floramite Miticide Insecticide, has a mode of action that still remains unclear by researchers. Because this ingredient causes paralysis in mites, researchers suggest that it acts on the nervous system. However, other research indicates that bifenazate targets the mitochondria, which could explain its selective nature. Because it doesn't provide systemic activity, you'll have to cover the upper and lower surfaces of leaves and fruit for maximum control.

Floramite SC Miticide Insecticide Target Pests
Although Floramite Miticide Insecticide controls many invasive mite species, it does not control rust, broad and flat mites. Therefore, you'll need to combine it with another miticide to combat those specific mites in greenhouses and landscapes. Floramite acts on the mobile stages and also has some ovicidal activity. Some of the more common mite species that Floramite controls include:
Citrus and clover mites
European red mites
Southern red mites
Two-spotted spider mites
