Description

Stealth Miticide and Insecticide

Active Ingredient:  18g/L Abamectin

Similar or Comparable. To: Vertimec Miticide/Insecticide (Syngenta)

Stealth Miticide And Insecticide is for the control of certain mites and insect pests on crops including Apples, Avocados, Berries, Cotton, Citrus, Custard Apple, Hops, Lychees, Mushrooms, Apaya/pawpaw, Passionfruit, Pears, Tomatoes, Cut Flowers, Ornamentals and Nursery Stock, Strawberries, Certain Vegetables, Duboisia, Oil Tea Tree; and Native Budworm on Cotton.

Cropro Stealth Miticide and Insecticide moves quickly into leaves following application where it remains for several weeks and where it is taken up by sucking mites. It is important that thorough coverage is achieved so that the maximum amount of product can be deposited on the leaf surface for uptake and subsequent ingestion by sucking mites. Abamectin that is not absorbed by leaves is quickly degraded.

Where can Stealth Miticide and Insecticide be used;

Adzuki beans Citrus Lettuce Papaya Spring onions
Apples Cotton Lychees Passionfruit Squash
Avocados Cucumber Mung Beans Pawpaw Strawberries
Blackberries Custard Apple Mushrooms Pears Sugar snap peas
Blackcurrants Cut flowers Navy Beans Raspberries Sweet corn
Blueberries Dubosia Nursery stock (non-food) Rhubarb Sweet peppers
Chilli peppers Eggplant Oil tea tree Shallots Tomato
Citrus (bare rooted & potted nursery stock) Hops Ornamentals Snow peas Zucchini

Ornamental plants include Cut Flower, Roses, Chrysanthemums, Carnations and Indoor Foliage Plants

European Red Mite (Panonychus ulmi) Red spider mite (Tetranychus urticae)
Litchi erinose mite (Aceria litchii) Soil borne nematodes of the family Rhabditidae

 

It is recommended that Stealth Miticide and Insecticide be applied no more than the following amount of times per season/crop and that it is not used consecutively except where a two spray schedule is specifically  recommended;

  • Cotton: no more than twice in one season and preferably only once per season. A second application is only recommended where mite pressure is very high.
  • Apples, Capsicums, Citrus, Hops, Pears: One spray per season
  • Tomatoes: Two sprays per crop if mites are present, five sprays if mites are not present

    Stealth Miticide And Insecticide (Abamectin)

    Julia (verified owner)

    Stealth Miticide And Insecticide (Abamectin) showed the best result with two-spotted mites. Mites fully covered the leaves of the sloe and almond trees. I tried many miticide sprays, but they worked for two weeks maximum. After abamectin treatment the leaves became green and clean. Also delivery was very fast. Thanks Specialist Sales for the wonderful service.

      Hi Mario. Unsure why the Stealth Miticide is not helping with the Spider Mites on your roses as Stealth Abamectin is very toxic to Spider Mites. Abamectin (the active ingredient of Stealth) functions as a nerve toxin that must be ingested by mites. Once applied, the material must move into the leaf tissue, where it can then be picked up by feeding mites. We are also not sure of the other insecticides you have used on your roses, however, these are usually highly toxic to spider mite natural enemies, particularly thrips and predator mites. If the natural enemies are reduced the Spider Mite populations can increase making the task of controlling them more difficult.

    Answered by the admin

    Unfortunately, the Stealth Miticide and Insecticide label only mentions that it is compatible with most commonly used insecticides. It does not mention compatibility with fungicides or, specifically, Copper Oxide. As this would be an 'off-label' recommendation, we suggest contacting the manufacturer, PCT, on 1800 630 877 or [email protected]. It is important to note that copper-based products can have specific side effects on plants when mixed with insecticides. These include Phytotoxicity which leads to damage or injury to plant tissues. This can manifest as leaf burn, chlorosis (yellowing), necrosis (tissue death), or stunted growth. Reduced photosynthesis may also occur. Photosynthesis is essential for energy production and development. This interference can result in reduced plant vigour and overall health.

    Stealth Miticide and Insecticide is not registered to control 'couch mites' or to be applied to lawns. You may want to consider Temprid 75 Residual Insecticide is a residual insecticide concentrate for the control of various insect pests in turf and ornamental plants and the management of various insect pests in domestic, commercial, industrial and public buildings. Temprid 75 is registered to control 'couch mites' in a lawn.

    Stealth Miticide and Insecticide is only registered to control broad mite (Polyphagotarsonemus latus) on Citrus.  To the best of our knowledge, no miticides are registered for controlling broad mites on Dahlias.  An 'off-label' trial undertaken at your own risk might be a consideration.

    Stealth Miticide and Insecticide active ingredient is abamectin. Abamectin is a broad-spectrum systemic insecticide that attacks the nervous system of insects and mites and causes paralysis within hours. It is used against pests with natural protection as it has contact and systemic properties. It integrates itself into the plant’s system quickly after application.

    Stealth Miticide and Insecticide is registered to control specific pests on some stone fruit trees, but Peaches and Apricots are not one of them.  As we are bound by the products 'directions for use' label, we do not recommend Stealth Miticide and Insecticide be used on Peaches and Apricots.  You may like to look at Bugmaster Flowable Insecticide, registered for use on both these species.

    Stealth Miticide and Insecticide is only registered to control Cotton Thrips on some bean crops.  It does not claim control over Chilli Thrip.  To the best of our knowledge, there are no insecticides registered in Australia that claim control of Chilli Thrip.  We have various insecticides such as Preserve 120 Insecticide, Success Ultra Insect Control, Vista 200SC & Venom Professional Insecticide registered to control certain thrip species but not Chilli Thrip.  The only way to know if Stealth Insecticide (or any of the others listed) is effective will be to conduct an 'off-label' trial.

    Stealth Miticide and Insecticide is registered to control Tea Red Spider Mite & Red Spider Mite with no mention of False Spider Mite.  Orchids are not explicitly listed in the host species of plants, as not every variety can be listed.  However, they would be considered ornamental plants and safe for use.  False Spider Mite control can't be guaranteed, but there is a good chance that Stealth will be effective against these pests when used at the rates recommended for other red mites in an 'off-label' test/trial situation.
