  • Acephate (e.g. Orthene Pellet)
  • Abamectin + Chlorantraniliprole (e.g. Voliam Targo 063 SC)
  • Chlorantraniliprole (e.g. Coragen 20SC)
  • Lufenuron (e.g. Match 50EC)
  • Emamectin benzoate (e.g. Prove 1.92EC)
  • Pyriproxyfen (e.g. Profen 10.8EC)

The following chemicals can be purchased from Twiga Chemicals, Orbit Chemical Industries and Coopers. Please ensure you only buy from certified chemical sellers.
