Dalus 10.8EC Insecticide

Active Ingredient:

  • Pyriproxyfen 10.8% - This belongs to the class of insecticides known as Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs). It disrupts the molting process of targeted insects, preventing them from reaching adulthood and reproducing.

Mode of Action:

Dalus 10.8EC is specifically an IGR that targets whiteflies in their immature stages. Here's how it works:

  • Molting Disruption: Whiteflies, like all insects, have an exoskeleton they must shed periodically to grow. Pyriproxyfen interferes with the production of chitin, a crucial component of the new exoskeleton.
  • Egg and Nymph Control: Dalus 10.8EC is most effective against whitefly eggs and nymphs (immature stages) by preventing them from successfully molting into the next developmental stage. This ultimately breaks the whitefly life cycle and reduces their population.


  • Targeted Control: Dalus 10.8EC specifically targets whiteflies, minimizing impact on beneficial insects in your cotton field.
  • Egg and Nymph Suppression: By controlling the early stages of whitefly development, it prevents them from reaching adulthood and laying more eggs.
  • Disrupts Life Cycle: Breaking the whitefly life cycle helps suppress whitefly populations and protects your cotton crop from damage they cause.

Important Considerations:

  • Follow application instructions carefully: Using the proper dose and application timing is crucial for effectiveness and to avoid harming your cotton crop.
  • Resistance Management: Rotate Dalus 10.8EC with insecticides from different chemical classes to prevent whiteflies from developing resistance.
  • Monitor whitefly populations: Regularly scout your cotton fields to assess whitefly pressure and determine the need for treatment.
  • Integrated Pest Management (IPM): For best results, integrate Dalus 10.8EC into a comprehensive IPM program that combines cultural practices, monitoring, and other control methods.
