Getting rid of fungus and disease
Lawn Fungicide 500EC
The Efekto Lawn Fungicide 500EC is an emulsifiable concentrate fungicide designed for the control of certain lawn diseases. The Efekto Lawn Fungicide contains the active ingredient propiconazole which is absorbed by the assimilating parts of the plant, the majority within one hour. It is transported upwards in the xylem. This systemic translocation contributes to the good distribution of the active ingredient within the plant tissue and prevents it from being washed off.
The Efekto Steriseal is a fungicidal pruning wound paste. For use on roses, grapevines, shrubs, and fruit trees after pruning.
Getting rid of annoying bugs in your plants
The Efekto Everdeath is a ready-to-use dusting powder for the control of insects in the home and garden. This product is especially popular due to its effectiveness and ease of use for the gardener. Efekto Everdeath is a single-step product that can be used both indoors and outdoors to knock down and control a wide variety of pests by just spreading the product around – no mixing needed.
Insecticide Granules Plus
This is a ready-to-use systemic insecticide in granular form to control aphids, mealybugs, thrips, and scale insects as listed on conifers, flowers, ornamental shrubs, and roses in the home garden. The Efekto Insecticide Granules Plus product uses water, whether from rainfall or irrigation, to cause the key ingredient to being released from the granule. It is rapidly absorbed, once released by the affected plants and drawn into the soil.
Once in the ground, the insecticide controls pests, either by killing them on contact or through ingestion of the active ingredient. It is also quickly absorbed by the plant’s roots. The active ingredient moves through the plant to the site of infestation.
Through eating the plant, the pests are affected. The pests stop feeding within minutes to hours of ingestion and will be followed rapidly by the death of the pest. The persistence of the solution in the dirt of the area, as well as the plants, provides a long period of control of the population of the pests.
The Efekto Plant Protector is a systemic suspension concentrate insecticide for use in the home garden to control- ants, harvester termites, and mole crickets in lawns, thrips, and other sucking insects, on conifers, roses, and other ornamentals.
Efekto Plant Protector can be used for the control of soil-inhabiting pests of lawns, such as ants, harvester termites, and mole crickets.
The active ingredient in Efekto Plant Protector Insecticide has sufficient residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg-laying activity of the target pests. High levels of control can be achieved when applications are made preceding or during the egg-laying period. Optimum control will be achieved when applications are made before egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.
