Confidor Insecticide has a broad spectrum of activity, particularly against sucking insects, various species of beetles and flies, and others.
The product is a highly effective systemic foliar insecticide. Also, Confidor is compatible with conventional insecticides.
To apply Confidor Insecticide, you will need a clean knapsack sprayer. Fill the sprayer half full with clean water. Then, add 100ml of Confidor Insecticide to 200 liters of water. Shake the sprayer well to mix the insecticide and water thoroughly.
Once the insecticide is mixed, you can begin spraying your plants. Be sure to spray all surfaces of the plant, including the leaves, stems, and undersides of the leaves. You may also want to spray the soil around the base of the plant.
Confidor Insecticide should be applied once a week. For highly infested plants, you may need to apply it 2-3 times a week.
