Spray the plants thoroughly, use a freshly prepared solution. Processing is carried out in the evening or in the morning in calm weather.

Oktyabrina: a very effective drug, especially if you carry out the treatment at the very beginning of the pest occupation of your site. One spraying was enough for me to clear my garden and country house from parasites.

Intavir (Inta-vir) - what is it, composition and how it works

Intavir is a hazard class 3 insecticide. The active ingredient is cypermethrin, which belongs to the pyrethroid group and is recognized worldwide as a sanitary and household insecticide and acaricide for indoor and outdoor use.

Cypermethrin, upon contact with an insect, affects its nervous system, as a result, communication with the internal organs and muscles is lost, they begin to work in a discordant manner, causing paralysis and death in the insect.

The advantages of the drug include:

  • The main advantage of the active substance is resistance to sunlight, and the absence of toxicity in relation to plants
  • Guaranteed destruction of pests - insects, caterpillars, slugs and saving the crop by 90%
  • Can be used on vegetable, fruit and berry and ornamental plants
  • Virtually odorless.

However, the drug also has disadvantages.

  • Intavir is a strong poison for beneficial insects, including bees
  • Does not affect larvae and eggs, which had time to be deposited by pests before processing, therefore, re-processing is required
  • Modifies soil composition by killing soil bacteria
  • Washed off by rain and water during watering, if this happened 3-4 hours after treatment.

When application is indicated

You should not hope for a miracle if even several pests are noticed on the crops grown, because if you do nothing, then in a week their population can reach unimaginable proportions. In addition, experienced gardeners prefer not to wait for the appearance of uninvited guests, treating plants even before flowering and fruiting for preventive purposes.

At the same time, the maximum efficiency can be observed when fighting representatives of such families as Homoptera, Coleoptera and Lepidoptera, which in Latin means "Homoptera", "Coleoptera" and "Lepidoptera".

It is also worth remembering that an absolutely non-phytotoxic (that is, safe for plants) drug is capable of providing a protective effect for a maximum period of up to two weeks.

This means that after the specified period, re-processing may be necessary. In addition, Intavir does not work for mite etching without the ability to penetrate the protective shell of these pests. That is why it is not necessary to transfer the agent to the fight against such parasites, and even more so to cover the plants with bags, giving preference instead to broad-acting acaricides.

Solution preparation and application features

For effective pest control, it is necessary to properly prepare the solution. Having studied the instructions and strictly following its recommendations, it will not be difficult to prepare the mixture. Crops are treated with a knapsack sprayer.

Any plants can be treated with a solution of "Prophylactin" without the risk of harming them.

The solution is prepared at the rate of 1 bottle (500 ml) per 10 liters of liquid. The product is poured into water, then the mixture must be thoroughly mixed. The resulting solution must be processed on the same day. It is strictly forbidden to use Prophylactin in conjunction with other drugs.

Plants can be sprayed when the air temperature rises to + 4 ° C. The solution consumption depends on the age of the culture and its size. For bushes, 1.5 liters is enough, and for trees - from 2 to 5 liters.

Detailed instructions and all related information in an accessible form are set out on the packaging of Prophylactin. The drug must not be stored or transported near food, medicine and animal feed.

Before starting processing, it is recommended to carefully protect the respiratory system, eyes and skin... Long-sleeved clothing, trousers or sweatpants, a mask or respirator, goggles and a hat will be the best option when working with the sprayer. During the processing of plants, it is strictly forbidden to smoke, drink and eat.

Prophylactin is an effective insecticide that is used to treat fruit trees and bushes before budding. Early processing helps to ensure that no trace of pesticides remains at the time of harvest.

Security measures

During the procedure, precautions must be taken. This is necessary in order not to harm the environment and human health:

  1. Processing should take place away from children and animals.
  2. Application of special clothing during spraying.
  3. Storage of the drug should be carried out away from food for both people and animals.

Whenever treating the garden with chemicals, you must strictly adhere to safety precautions

  • It is forbidden to drink, smoke, eat food during processing.
  • Do not use food containers to prepare the solution.
  • Do not mix this mixture with other pesticides.

  • To store the herbicide, the Master must choose a closed room where the temperature is maintained from +15 to +20 degrees and low air humidity. It must be protected from direct sunlight. Even with a slight wetting or freezing, the dry mixture by 25% becomes unusable, that is, its effectiveness decreases, and some compounds are destroyed.

    Subject to the conditions and tightness of the packaging, the shelf life of the Master feed is 5 years. Before sending the composition for storage, it is recommended to pour it from a paper or plastic bag into a glass container, seal it tightly with a lid.
