Versys


Versys insecticide quickly stops aphid and whitefly damage in fruits and vegetables.

  • Rapidly stops feeding to limit feeding damage.
  • Provides an extended duration of control.
  • Controls pests that may have developed resistance to other chemistries.
  • Safe on beneficial predatory insects to support integration into an integrated pest management program.

How it works

Le mode d'action

     
  • Versys insecticide has a new, unique mode of action known as chordotonal organ TRPV channel modulators.
    IRAC Group 9D.
  •    
  • The chordotonal organs are biological stretch sensors.
    They may be located in the antennae, mouth, legs, wings or thorax of insects.
  •     
  • These stretch sensors provide insects with their senses of hearing, orientation and balance.
    In insect leg joints, the same sensors are critical for coordinated movement.
  •  
  • Versys acts selectively on these stretch sensors making it impossible for the insect to detect sound, gravity and the movement and position of body parts.
  •    
  • Deaf, disoriented and uncoordinated, insects affected by Versys rapidly cease feeding.
