Break the Life Cycle.



For long-term results, an insect control program should do more than attack the adults—it should break the life cycle. Distance® IGR controls whiteflies, fungus gnats, scales and other insects by preventing eggs, larvae and pupae from maturing into adults. Its unique, targeted mode of action makes Distance Insect Growth Regulator a natural for integrated pest management (IPM) or insect resistance management (IRM) programs.


INSECT CONTROL THAT GOES THE DISTANCE
  • Translaminar control to break the life cycle
  • Targeted mode of action
  • Prevents eggs, larvae and pupae from maturing into breeding adults
  • Excellent choice for integrated pest management (IPM) or insect resistance management (IRM) programs

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Distance® is intended for use in integrated pest management (IPM) or integrated resistance management (IRM) programs. Distance will not control adult insects, and it is recommended to be used in combination and/or rotation with other IPM or IRM materials. Contact your local state extension service for details.

Distance is compatible with most commonly used insecticides, fungicides, and spray adjuvants used in the production of ornamental plants. When using Distance in tank mixes with other pesticides, observe all directions for use and precautions on the respective tank mix label. When making an application of a tank mix for the first time, it is recommended that a few plants be treated and observed for phytotoxicity for two to four weeks before making large scale applications.

FOR USE IN LOW VOLUME SYSTEMS: Distance has been evaluated and shown to be effective for foliar applications when applied through Electrostatic Spraying Systems, PulsFOG® Systems, or other low volume systems. Low volume systems should not be used to control soil-inhabiting insects such as fungus gnats and shore flies.
