Piston™ is a broad-spectrum insecticide-miticide that delivers outstanding control of tough greenhouse pests. Piston provides 14-21 days of control depending on the pest and the pest population pressure. Piston has excellent stomach activity when ingested and exceptional contact activity. It kills most pests within 72 hours, except foliar nematodes.
Piston contains the active ingredient Chlorfenapyr, and it is a member of the pyrroles class of chemicals. Piston works by interfering with the energy production of pests, preventing the conversion of ADP to ATP so mites and insects cannot generate enough energy to survive.
