Product Details

Molt-X® is an insect growth regulator registered for use as bio-insecticide in the USA except in States of AK, DC, ND and NV.

Please refer product labels provided below for complete application and safety details.

Molt-X® - (Active ingredient – Azadirachtin a compound isolated from neem leaves) is an OMRI listed emulsifiable concentrate formulation, which works as an insect growth regulator that is known for disrupting the molting process in insects. When immature stages of insects are exposed to Molt-X®, they become sick, stop feeding and cannot develop into next stage/instar because of disrupted molting. Also, matured insects when exposed to Molt-X® cannot reproduce normally.

+ Key factors for mode of action of Molt-X® EC against insect and nematode pests
  • Molt-X® - is an insect growth regulator that disrupts the molting process in insects which in turn stops insect and nematode development to maturity.
  • When Molt-X® sprayed on the plants that are infested with both immature mature stages of insects sick, it can make exposed insect sick, deter them from feeding and stop their development into adults by disrupting their molting process that is important in the lifecycle of all the insects.
  • Molt-X® can stop insects becoming adults so that they cannot reproduce, lay eggs and build-up their population in the garden.
  • When Molt-X® applied in the soil, it can also disrupt lifecycle of plant-parasitic nematodes including root lesion nematodes, root-knot nematodes, ring nematodes, spiral nematodes and stubby root nematodes.
+ Rates of application of Molt-X® EC in the greenhouses, fields, gardens and nurseries?

The optimum concentration of Molt-X® in spay solution for the effective control of different pests is 8-10 ounces per 100 gallons of water.

  • For insect pest control, apply 8-10 ounces of Molt-X® /acre of vegetables or ornamentals.
  • For plant-parasitic nematode control, apply15 ounces of Molt-X® /acre of vegetables or ornamentals.
+ How Molt-X® EC works in organic gardens, greenhouses, fields, gardens and nurseries?
  • When Molt-X® sprayed on the plants that are infested with both immature mature stages of insects sick, it can make exposed insect sick, deter them from feeding and stop their development into adults by disrupting their molting process that is important in the lifecycle of all the insects.
  • Molt-X® can stop insects becoming adults so that they cannot reproduce, lay eggs and build-up their population in the garden.
  • When Molt-X® applied in the soil, it can also disrupt lifecycle of plant-parasitic nematodes including root lesion nematodes, root-knot nematodes, ring nematodes, spiral nematodes and stubby root nematodes.
+ Why Molt-X® EC is safer than traditional pesticides
  • Molt-X® is safe to humans, pet animals and the environment
  • It does not cause any phytotoxicity.
  • Generally it is safe to beneficial insects
  • Leaves no residue on plant parts including leaves, fruits and stems.
  • Generally 4-hour Re-entry interval and a 0-day pre-harvest interval
