Zhukoed - for the effective fight against the Colorado potato beetle
The Colorado potato beetle is such a widespread pest of our gardens that not only summer residents and country people know about it, but also people who are far from agriculture. This representative of the leaf beetle family came to us from warm Mexico. But very quickly adapted to harsh local conditions and safely lives and breeds. We will talk about how to get rid of the Colorado potato beetle in this article.
What is the danger of the Colorado bug?
The Colorado potato beetle is considered a malicious pest of potatoes, but it does not shun the tops of tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and some other crops. And if the fight against other harmful insects, as a rule, is a desirable measure, then you can’t fight with the Colorado potato beetle.
Females lay larvae at the speed of a machine gun, and they are much more voracious of their parents and in a few days can leave pathetic memories from healthy bushes of vegetable crops.
The Colorado potato beetle is quite tenacious and easily adapts to any conditions. If as a result of treatment with pesticides at least one individual survives, all its offspring will have immunity against this group of drugs.
Therefore, those who grow potatoes are forced every year to look for a new remedy for a malicious pest, to alternate groups of pesticides. True, these measures are sometimes powerless in the fight against the Colorado potato beetle.
Zhukoed is an effective remedy
But there is good news - Russian scientists have developed a unique three-component preparation against the Colorado potato beetle on potatoes - Zhukoed. Releases tool JSC "August".
A feature of the drug is that it immediately contains 3 active substances that act in different directions:
- Alpha cypermethrin possesses instant contact action - within an hour after treatment, the pests stop feeding and die;
- Imidaclodpride - a substance of systemic action quickly penetrates into plants and for a long time deprives the beetle of the opportunity to eat leaves;
- Clothianidin provides long-lasting plant protection due to the ability to penetrate and linger in all tissues of the culture.
The Zhukoed leaves no chance for Colorado beetles - even those hiding on the underside of the leaf die within 24 hours.
The uniqueness of the Zhukoed preparation also lies in the fact that due to the composition of the product, plants increase stress resistance and, as a result, increase productivity.
Features of the use of the drug
The possibility of using the drug in a wide temperature range is another invaluable quality of a protective agent.
Zhukoed is conveniently packaged in 1.5 ml ampoules and 9 ml vials. The use of the drug is quite economical - 1 ampoule is diluted in 3 liters of water and this is enough to process 100 m2. In addition, to defeat the Colorado potato beetle will require only one treatment.
Methods of preparing the solution, waiting times, safety measures and other subtleties are described in detail in the attached instructions.
The use of Zhukoed in the recommended doses does not harm the environment, and for the specified waiting period (20 days), the drug breaks down into safe compounds, and potatoes can be eaten without fear.
