Altus is a novel insecticide that can be used on a wide range of plants anytime during the production cycle for targeted control of whiteflies, aphids and other harmful insects. With Altus, growers can utilize long-lasting drench applications for more difficult crops (such as poinsettias) and containers (such as hanging baskets).

Altus contains Flupyradifurone, a butenolide chemistry that is a great fit for integrated pest management programs. With an excellent non-target safety profile, Altus offers flexible and long-lasting performance and is compatible with honey bees, bumble bees and many beneficial insects in all production ornamental settings.
