Pest Off Plus is a new product that is aimed at controlling a range of biting and sucking insects. It consists of active ingredients from Rapeseed oil and Pyrethrum which are known to be effective in the treatment of many insects. These include White Fly, Aphids, Thrips, Mites, Scale Bugs, Caterpillars, Wool Bug, Mealy Bug, Beetles and some Wasp larvae. Guard ‘n’ Aid Pest Off Plus is effective at all stages of the insect life cycle from egg to larvae to adult. This makes it very effective in breaking the life cycle of bugs and preventing re-infestations.
Pest Off Plus is suitable for both edible and non-edible plant varieties, meaning it is safe to use anywhere. We would always avoid bees if using it outside; they are under enough threat! It works on plants and surfaces such as mylar on tent walls to floors etc. After mixing, make sure to use it within 6 hours as it will start to degrade beyond that.
As with most foliar sprays, Pest Off Plus is best when you apply it just as the lights go off. This way, there is no risk of leaf burn from the light lensing in droplets and focusing on a point. Try to hit as much of the surface of the plant as you can, including the undersides of the leaves. Bugs can hide there and escape death, only to go on to produce the next generation. Always avoid spraying flowers and buds too. Moisture can collect in their dense structures and will encourage mould to develop.
Pest Off Plus Concentrate conforms with the corresponding positive list of ECC 2092/91 for ecological farming.
