How to use Aktofit – biological insecticide against many pests
How to use Aktofit for spraying potatoes from the Colorado potato beetle? Last year, I processed tubers before planting, but this season I could not. I always plant a lot, we have a big family, and before the children helped. But now they are studying in another city, so they had to do everything myself in the spring. I decided that it would be better then my son would come and sprinkle the beds, but I already regret this rash decision. The bushes are still small, and there are already a lot of beetles on them. A neighbor advised Aktofit, says that after two procedures the pests disappear. What are the consumption rates?

It is a universal remedy for pest control of vegetable gardens, gardens and even indoor crops. Fast action, lack of addiction and compatibility with many other drugs are its main advantages. What is Aktofit and what pests it is used against?
Description of the drug
Aktofit is of natural origin and therefore does not pose a threat to cultivated plants, people, birds and animals. Its active ingredient (aversectin C) contains a complex of avermectins, which are produced by soil fungus. The latter is not pathogenic, but endows the components with neurotoxins, against which the pests are powerless. This is the reason for the contact effect of the insecticide. Once on an insect, it penetrates inside it and paralyzes the nervous system, leading to death.
The drug is not addictive. It can be combined with fungicides, fertilizers, growth stimulants. An exception is made by means with an alkaline reaction. If a dark precipitate forms during mixing, then the combination is impossible..
Another advantage of the insecticide is its convenient form of release. For small private households, you can purchase 10 ml glass vials or 40 ml bags of the drug. They contain an emulsion, yellow or brown, almost odorless. For an industrial scale, large packages are produced: bottles (200 or 900 ml each) and canisters (4.5 liters.)
