Mode of Action

Chlorpyrifos (organophosphate group) works by blocking an enzyme which controls messages that travel between nerve cells. When the enzyme is blocked, the nervous system can’t send normal signals, which causes the nervous system to malfunction, eventually killing the pest.

Carry a sensitivity test on a few plants particularly on roses. Repeat applications on a 7-14 day intervals for maximum 3 applications per seasons.
