Pylon® Miticide-Insecticide

Pylon miticide-insecticide, with the active ingredient chlorfenapyr, is a cost-effective, broad-spectrum product that provides exceptional control of key greenhouse pests. Pylon is the only registered product in the pyrroles class of chemistry with control of a range of insects and mites, caterpillars and Western flower and chilli thrips on ornamental plants. Pylon controls the target insect or mite by interfering with energy production of the pests. Its translaminar movement and mode of action result in mortality of most pests in 72 hours.

Keys to Success

To minimize risk of injury to plants, make applications prior to blooming or avoid blooms whenever possible. Apply in the coolest times of day and refer to the Pylon label to evaluate crop safety on any plants you may be treating.

Pylon is not ovicidal and so should be used in rotation with a registered ovicidal product specific for the pest when moderate to high populations of eggs are present. Applications should be made to the immature stages of insects and mites.

When target insect populations are high and potential for multiple generations exist, make a Pylon application at the high rate, then make a sequential application 5 to 7 days later. Make only one sequential application at the 5- to 7-day interval when necessary. See the label for additional instructions regarding resistance management.
