  • (S)-Methoprene Insect Growth Regulator

    (S)-Methoprene Insect Growth Regulator

    (S)-Methoprene is an insect growth regulator, or more precisely, a juvenile hormone mimic. Rather than killing insects, it controls them by interfering with normal hormone levels within the insect at critical development periods preventing growth and/or maturation. It is active by contact or ingestion and in some insects (e.g., fleas) it affects eggs or female fecundity. (S)-Methoprene controls a broad range of insects including diptera, hymenoptera,...

  • Diflubenzuron Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor

    Diflubenzuron Chitin Synthesis Inhibitor

    Diflubenzuron is a chitin synthesis inhibitor, which is another type of insect growth regulator. Unlike juvenile mimic hormones, the chitin synthesis inhibitors interfere with the normal synthesis of insect exoskeletons during molting or at hatching of eggs. Diflubenzuron is a non-systemic active ingredient with contact and stomach activity. It is used to control a wide range of leaf-eating insects in forestry, woody ornamentals and fruit. It controls...

  • Piperonyl Butoxide Synergist

    Piperonyl Butoxide Synergist

    Piperonyl Butoxide, or PBO, is a synergist. It inhibits mixed function oxidases (MFO) of the insect so that its natural detoxification system is blocked and the efficacy of applied insecticides is increased. PBO is used mainly to synergize sodium channel modulators such as pyrethrum and pyrethroids. PBO is arguably the most used synergist in the market today.

  • Etofenprox Low Toxicity Pyrethroid

    Etofenprox Low Toxicity Pyrethroid

    Etofenprox is a very effective, low toxicity pyrethroid that acts on the nervous system of insects by disrupting their neuron sodium channels. Etofenprox is a contact-kill adulticide used to control a wide variety of insects including weevils, beetles, aphids, moths, whiteflies, thrips, borers, fleas and mosquitoes. Etofenprox is well tolerated by mammals, including cats, and is environmentally friendly.

  • (S)-Hydroprene Insect Growth Regulator

    (S)-Hydroprene Insect Growth Regulator

    Like (S)-Methoprene, (S)-Hydroprene is also an insect growth regulator, or more precisely, a juvenile hormone mimic. Rather than killing insects, it controls them by interfering with normal hormone levels within the insect at critical development periods preventing growth and/or maturation. It is active by contact or ingestion and in some insects (e.g., roaches) it affects eggs or female fecundity. (S)-Hydroprene is mainly used to control...

  • Tau-fluvalinate Pyrethroid Insecticide/Acaricide

    Tau-fluvalinate Pyrethroid Insecticide/Acaricide

    Tau-fluvalinate is a pyrethroid insecticide/acaricide that acts on the nervous system by disrupting the neuron sodium channels. It has contact and stomach action. Fluvalinate is used to control a wide range of insects including Lepidoptera, aphids, thrips, leafhoppers, spider mites, etc. However, in the U.S. it is only used in segments other than row crop.

  • Pyrethrins Insecticide

    Pyrethrins Insecticide

    The Pyrethrins story is one of a simple daisy with rare natural properties (nature’s own insecticide). Pyrethrins is actually a mix of three naturally-occurring closely-related insecticidal compounds extracted from chrysanthemum flowers, Pyrethrins I, and the 3 corresponding esters of pyrethrin acid, i.e., Pyrethrins II. In the U.S.A., this mix is standardized as 50 plus or minus 2%. These compounds disrupt sodium channels in the neurons of...

  • Fly Control for Production Livestock

    Fly Control for Production Livestock

    Nuisance flies can be pervasive and costly to both confined and pasture cattle in North America. Horn flies alone cost North American cattle producers over $1 billion each year. Add face flies, stable flies and even house flies to the mix and you've got a potent threat to cattle production. These disease carrying, biting pests increase cattle stress, lower resistance to illness, and affect feeding to the point of causing fluctuations in weight gain.

  • Greenhouse Products/Nursery Insect Control

    Greenhouse Products/Nursery Insect Control

    Insect pests compromise the livelihoods of countless commercial growers every year. Controlling damaging insects, such as aphids, thrips, mites, whiteflies and fire ants require comprehensive programs to effectively prevent costly infestations. The Wellmark division at Central Life Sciences offers insect growth regulators and adulticides to provide operators the tools they need to help protect their products. The combination of Enstar® AQ...

  • Midge/Filter Fly Control

    Midge/Filter Fly Control

    Filter flies and midge flies often breed in the gelatinous film covering the trickling filters at wastewater treatment plants. Because they cluster in huge numbers, these pests affect facilities, their employees and neighboring communities. Central Life Sciences carries Strike® Professional Midge Control, an insect growth regulator that can be applied without shutting down the wastewater treatment facility. A variety of Strike®...

  • Stored Commodity Insect Control

    Stored Commodity Insect Control

    Stored product pests such as Lesser Grain Borers, Confused Flour Beetles, Saw-toothed Grain Beetles and Indian Meal Moths pose a significant threat to a variety of commodities. Insect infestations can cause contamination, odor and mold, but most importantly, reduce value and overall quality of stored commodities, costing the industry millions. Central Life Sciences offers the DIACON® IGR family of products to help fight stored product pests....

  • Varroa Mite Control

    Varroa Mite Control

    Each year honey bees are an essential part of a $100 million honey industry and are responsible for the pollination of billions of dollars worth of fruit and vegetable crops. Insect threats to honey bees are a serious economic threat to pollination for growers and honey production. To counteract this threat, Central Life Sciences offers Apistan®, an industry standard for Varroa control, and Hivastan® (Sec 18), a contact...
