EpiShield is an ideal miticide and insecticide for growers seeking a product that requires less storing and moving of large volumes with greater flexibility in timing of applications. It contains a proprietary and concentrated blend of peppermint and clove oils that produce high mortality rates with lower application rates in targeted pests through various modes of actions including paralysis, suffocation, and desiccation.
This formulation can be used indoors and outdoors for suppression and control of various pests including mites, aphids, whiteflies, mealybugs, and thrips on a wide range of agricultural and commercial crops such as cannabis, outdoor food crops, annuals, perennials and more. In addition, this formulation has no know risks for pest resistance or residue tolerance.
Designed to deliver effective control with 10 times lower application rates (than other horticultural oils), EpiShield has lower phytotoxicity allowing for more tolerance to temperature and humidity variations allowing for flexibility of application timing and is ideal for spot sprays.
Additional benefits include exemptions from restricted entry interval (REI), preharvest interval (PHI), food tolerance requirements (MRLs) and pesticide use reporting. It is compatible with most insecticides and fungicides however avoid using with products that are not for use with oils.
