Molt-X is an emulsifiable concentrate formulation containing 3% of the active ingredient azadirachtin – the most potent of the compounds derived from the neem tree. While it is derived from neem seed, Molt-X is not neem oil. Molt-X has multiple modes of action, making it an ideal material for an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. Molt-X works primarily as an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that disrupts the molting process in insects. Insects treated with Molt-X become sluggish, stop feeding, and fail to mature and reproduce.
Molt-X also acts as an insect repellent, antifeedant, and ovipositional deterrent; these multiple modes of action make it a highly effective tool for use in a resistance management program.
Molt-X should be applied early in the pest cycle to prevent the rapid build-up of pest populations. Apply when pests are first observed or when conditions are favorable for pest build-up. This product is safe for plants and mammals, but is toxic to fish.
How To Use: This product can be applied through the following irrigation systems: drip (trickle) or sprinkler (center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, or hand move), flood (basin) irrigation systems.

When used as a stand-alone material and for optimal results, make 2 to 3 applications, 7 to 10 days apart. The best results are achieved with full coverage of all leaf surfaces. Soil Treatments
