June 2016 Newsletter (vol.43)   >>   Slam Scale Insects with Fulcum IGR!

Bothered by scale insects on outdoor trees and shrubs? Hit them with a 1-2 punch to increase control. Fulcrum, an insect growth regulator (IGR) plus your favorite horticultural oil.


Studies conducted by Tennessee State University showed a Spring application of Fulcrum resulted in less than 5% live scale remaining at the end of the season. We have attached a copy of the study for your information here.


With its active ingredient pyriproxyfen, Fulcrum controls a number of troublesome pests on ornamentals, shrubs, foliage plants, flowering plants, and other plants.


Fulcrum is both a contact and ingestion insecticide with translaminar activity. While it does not control adults, Fulcrum negatively affects development of viable eggs.


Rates range from 2-12 fl. oz. per 100 gallons of water, depending on the target pest. Fulcrum may be sprayed or drenched and carries a 12-hour Restricted Entry Interval (REI).


Fulcrum is packaged in one quart (32 fl. oz.) containers with four to a case.
