What is Tetraniliprole?

Tetraniliprole is the active ingredient in the new Bayer insecticide! It offers a unique 2-in-1 solution for both annual bluegrass weevil and white grubs.

Chemical Class: Diamide (IRAC Class 28)

Primary Pests:

// Annual bluegrass weevil

// White grubs

// Caterpillars


How does it work?

How does it work

Tetraniliprole moves systemically through the plant through xylem distribution. This causes immediate feeding cessation and therefore fast, visible benefits to the plant following exposure.

How is this different from other insecticides?

// The new insecticide will provide a one-of-a-kind, 2-in-1 solution that targets both ABW and white grubs.

// Provides season-long protection

// Its speed of action causes immediate cessation of insect feeding following exposure

// Flexible timing for white grub and ABW application

// Product is absorbed through the root and through the shoot of the plant for fast results

// Consistent control of ABW and white grubs with just 1-2 applications per year
