While a golf course superintendent must have a sharp focus on controlling pests that may affect the playing surfaces of the course, the clubhouse areas should not be overlooked. In that regard, Quali-Pro and Control Solutions also have simple, fast-acting, lasting insect control strategies that can help keep the areas surrounding the clubhouse pest free, enhancing the overall experience of your club members and guests.
PROFLEX insecticide offers long term control of mosquitoes, gnats, crickets, ants, fleas, ticks and many other insect pests commonly found in, on, and around buildings and structures. PROFLEX utilizes a combination of three active ingredients and micro encapsulation to provide exceptional insect control that is both fast and long-lasting.
New from Control Solutions, TEKKO 0.2G is a mosquito larvicide insect growth regulator that prevents adult mosquito emergence in treated areas. This extremely effective granular formulation is designed to stop mosquito larvae from transitioning into adults, including those which may transmit harmful diseases. TEKKO 0.2G is an excellent addition to any integrated mosquito management program. It is easy to apply and provides up to 13 weeks of protection in standing water around your course.
Fire ants and other stinging insects can be a serious concern in outdoor areas where people congregate. Taurus Trio G with Verge® Technology, is powered by three different active ingredients, Fipronil, Bifenthrin, and Lambda Cyhalothrin, have been combined in one uniform granule to deliver fast and long-lasting fire ant control. No other insecticide granule combines two unique modes of action to maximize results in a single application. Quali-Pro’s Taurus Trio G provides season-long fire ant control along with the added benefits of controlling fleas, ticks, and mole crickets.
Other worrisome insects such as wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets can be knocked down instantly from up to 20 feet away using Control Solutions Stryker Wasp and Hornet Killer, available as a ready-to-use aerosol. Stryker’s residual activity also ensures complete elimination of the nest. It knocks down hornets and wasps so quickly that they do not have time to release their stinging pheromones, which in turn reduces the possibility of the applicator being stung.
While familiar to many for use as a spring preventive grub control, Quali-Pro Imidacloprid also provides control of many common insect pests in ornamentals. When applied as a soil drench, Quali-Pro Imidacloprid systemically controls piercing-sucking insects such as aphids, mealybugs, scale, and whiteflies in landscape plantings for months. Quali-Pro offers multiple formulations including sprayable liquid and water-soluble bag concentrates, as well as a spreadable granular formulation.
