Alatar: instructions for use of the drug for insect control
What a pity that it is impossible to get a crop without applying chemical treatment. Often, it is necessary to wage a "war" with harmful insects and diseases of cultivated plants with the help of means - unique chemical compounds used to exterminate pests, as well as a huge number of larvae, even laid eggs, as well as worms and ticks.
Informative! The name "insecticides" has roots in Latin and is translated as "insectum", which means "insect" and "caedo" is "to kill" because the name does not speak for itself. By the way, after all, it is the specific chemical composition that makes it possible to divide chemicals into eleven types, but the conversation will now focus on only one Alatar for fighting insects.
Chemical Alatar: description of the drug
Alatar for pest control: video instructions for use
The drug Alatar belongs to a group of such agents that have the ability to penetrate the digestive tract of insects. It is great for exterminating pests of any area, reliably protecting the garden from diseases. The remedy helps to get rid of aphids, leafworms, moths, flower-eating beetles, cabbage moths, spindles, raspberry-strawberry weevils and other pests.
Due to its easy accessibility and simplicity of preparation of the working mixture, the Alatar chemical rightfully occupies one of the important places in the "first aid kit" of any expert in gardening. Approximately 10-15 ampoules can provide strong protection to the cultivated plants throughout the season. Can be used in conjunction with fishing straps, which significantly increase the impact of the chemical and reduce its consumption. The specified drug comes into sale already in the form of a ready-made saturated emulsion, poured into ampoules with a volume of exactly 5 ml or in glass vials filled up to 25 ml. In order to prepare the necessary solution for work, the contents of the ampoule are mixed with a small amount of water (about 2-3 liters), and then a little more water is added to obtain the required amount. For each plant, the drug must be diluted strictly according to the instructions, but the funds must necessarily turn out to be 10 liters.
Active substance and principle of its action
Judging by the reviews, Alatar copes much more significantly with these tasks than similar means. It is possible to obtain such results if two active substances are present in its composition at the same time: cypermethrin and karbofos. Karbofos (or malathion) belongs to the class of organophosphorus compounds with an extended spectrum of effects. "Alatar" perfectly protects crops from aphids, the most "arrogant" pest, and also prevents massive attacks of insects and ticks.
The next substance in the composition is usually called the contact-intestinal component, which is characterized by a high initial efficiency and provokes paralysis of the central nervous system in pests, regardless of age, both in adult insects and their small larvae.In addition, a special adhesive is included in the composition of "Alatar", which fulfills a special purpose - as soon as it prevents the removal of the solution from the foliage or its washing off by precipitation. Did you know? Karbofos and cypermethrin are just those substances with the help of which this agent always destroys the most resistant pests, characterized by a strengthening effect (when used together, their effect increases). In general, this Alatar from various kinds of harmful insects is very resistant to the influence of ultraviolet rays and hot weather, with the help of which it remains on the crops sprayed with it for twenty days.
Alatar: instructions for use of the drug
As mentioned earlier, different plants always need a different amount of the desired drug, in this regard, before proceeding with the dilution of the solution, it is necessary to determine the exact dosage.
Cabbage, onions, potatoes, carrots, strawberries
Cabbage is processed with Alatar only during fruiting. To create a working mixture, a 5 ml ampoule is mixed with 4 liters of ordinary water, then the culture is sprayed with the prepared solution. The consumption of the chemical in this case will be 4 liters per 100 m². Spraying of cabbage is used to exclude whites, deciduous fleas, cabbage moths, bladders, scoops. Chemical treatment of potatoes should be carried out exclusively with a mass attack of pests. Exactly the same as when spraying cabbage, 4 liters of solution will be needed per 100 m², and the work time lasts about 10 days. The drug is used to destroy Colorado, potato moth and even ladybugs. According to the same scheme, a working mixture is prepared for processing onions, carrots, as well as strawberries: an ampoule of the drug must be mixed with 4 liters of running water. In such cases, the chemical for annoying insects Alatar will get rid of onion gnats, carrot deciduous fleas for quite a long time, and also save strawberries from the specific raspberry-strawberry weevil beetle.
The processing of a garden apple, and together with it pears and even quince, is carried out in the main fruiting period of trees, in advance by combining 5 ml of the product with 10 liters of ordinary water. About one crop takes about five liters of liquid: 3 liters is spent on young seedlings and 6-8 liters on grown plants. The most popular pests of apple trees are flower eaters, moths, surveyors, aphids, slimy sawflies, worms, as well as leaf rollers, and "Alatar" copes excellently with all.
For the treatment of currant and gooseberry bushes, 5 ml of the product must be mixed with 5 liters of ordinary water. On average, 1 bush takes up to 1 liter of the working mixture, which allows you to get rid of the aphid infestation.
Small trees, various shrubs and some flower crops
Alatar also contributes to the destruction of harmful insects when growing beautiful ornamental small bushes and trees in a vegetable garden or garden. These plants require unusual care, in this regard, they are sprayed three times: before and at the end of the flowering period, and especially during fruiting. The consumption of the prepared solution is usually about 1.5 liters per 10 m², in addition to everything, it is more expedient to carry out the treatment practically at dawn or after sunset in the evening, in calm and rainless weather. Absolutely all leaves of planted plants should be sprayed in the same way, 4-6 hours before the expected precipitation. A suitable temperature for manipulation is + 12 ... + 25 ° C. Alatar for the extermination of pests protects decorative beautiful trees from pests sucking and gnawing leaves, sucking insects and dipterans. To spray all the seedlings, 5 ml of the chemical is combined with 3.5 liters of running water. Alatar is ideal for spraying indoor, mainly flowering plants.
Benefits of using Alatar for the purpose of exterminating the insect population
All chemical compositions used today include some useful properties, but the drug Alatar for pest control, in relation to others, wins with high efficiency, which is often explained by the content of two active components that contribute to the extermination of even the most resistant insects to chemicals. Contains in its composition a special component - an adhesive, which prevents washing off or unintentional removal of the agent from the leaves of the sprayed plants; As a rule, it has the longest implementation period, which is motivated by a low consumption of the drug (usually one 5 ml ampoule is enough for 10 liters of water).
Self-protection measures when working with this drug
When working with a variety of chemicals, it is imperative to observe all the necessary safety measures. First of all, it is more advisable to carry out the planned procedure in calm calm weather, but a weak wind is also acceptable. Then, it is necessary to cover all bare parts of your body, this is any headgear, respirator, goggles and gloves. You also need to make sure that no one is nearby during the event. In case of contact with eyes, mucous membranes and skin, rinse quickly with plenty of plain water. And upon penetration into the body, drink activated charcoal and immediately induce vomiting.
Storage conditions and shelf life of Alatar
Alatar against various harmful insects is sold in the form of 5 ml ampoules or 25 ml glass bottles. Regardless of this, the shelf life of the drug is no longer than two years. The chemical must be stored in a dry, dark place at temperatures from -5 ° C to +25 ° C. Do not store next to food and medicine. It is also necessary to exclude access to children and pets. In addition, the drug must be protected from fire. Seedlings treated with Alatar can easily cope with annoying pests, as well as withstand worsening weather conditions, for example, gusty winds and cold rain.
