What is Tetraniliprole?

Tetraniliprole is the active ingredient in the new Bayer insecticide*. It offers a unique two-in-one solution for both white grub and annual bluegrass weevil (ABW).

Chemical Class: Diamide (IRAC Class 28)

Primary Pests:

// Annual bluegrass weevil

// White grubs

// Caterpillars


How does it work?

Whether used for preventive or early curative insect control, our forthcoming insecticide can work quickly to control problem pests. Absorbed through the roots and shoots of the turf, the active ingredient tetraniliprole causes immediate cessation of insect feeding following exposure for fast results.

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.

// Season-Long White Grub Control

While offering season-long white grub control, it’s best to apply our forthcoming insecticide in late June through early August just prior to the eggs hatching and larvae feeding.

Data from six field trials performed across various sites (NJ, WI, KY, IL, NC, PA) targeting different species, including Japanese beetle, northern masked chafer, Asiatic garden beetle, green June beetle and Oriental beetle. A high rate (32 fl oz/A) of tetraniliprole was used as a single application across timings.

Our upcoming insecticide is proven to offer protection from one of the most difficult turf pests to manage: the annual bluegrass weevil. Studies have shown it will be highly effective when applied in late April to early June after eggs hatch and then applied for a second time in early to late July after second-generation eggs hatch.
