Boscalid is a fungicide intended for use on food crops such as beans, peanuts, pistachios, lettuce, grapes, and strawberries.


Carbofuran is a “Restricted Use” pesticide that targets mites and nematodes in the soil, leaves, fruits and other parts of the plant upon ingestion or on contact.


Chlorfenapyr is a pyrrole class of chemical pesticide, classified as Toxicity Category II, or moderately toxic.


Chlorpyrifos is a broad-spectrum insecticide, effective in controlling a wide variety of insects.


Daminozide is a PGR that affects the maturity, coloration, firmness, and harvest of a plant or fruit.


Coumaphos is an organophosphate pesticide used mainly on livestock, (pigs, cows, and sheep), to target the parasites such as cattle grubs, ticks, and flies without harming the host it lives on.

Dichlorvos (DDVP)

Dichlorvos (DDVP) is commonly used to kill common pests such as spider mites, aphids, thrips, and white flies.


Dimethoate is an organophosphate insecticide used on a wide variety of insects from household pests to botflies on livestock that can terminate on contact.


Ethoprop(hos) is an organophosphate insecticide used to control a variety of insect types pre-planting and in the soil.


Etofenprox is a synthetic pyrethoid ether insecticide used against insects that have developed resistance to organophosphorus or carbamate insecticides.


Fenoxycarb is a carbamate insect growth regulator that affects the hormones of an insect that may be ruining crops.


Fipronil is a synthetic insecticide used in agriculture and administered on pets to prevent fleas, ticks, and mites.


A fungicide used on fruits, vegetables, and other plants, Imazalil can control a wide range of fungi, such as powdery mildew and black spots.


Methiocarb is insecticide, acaricide, and molluscicide, that may also be used to target rodents and birds.

Methyl Parathion

Methyl parathion is a Restricted Use Pesticide (RUP) and acaricide used to control boll weevils and many other crop insects.


Mevinphos is a broad spectrum organophosphate insecticide/acaricide used on fruits and nuts to control aphids, mites, ticks, grasshoppers, cutworms, caterpillars, and many other insects on crops.


Myclobutanil is a very commonly used fungicide, applied to control the growth of fungi like powdery mildew.


Paclobutrazol is a Fungicide and PGR, primarily used to restrict the top growth of a plant as well as increase the nutrient uptake through the root system.


Propoxur is an insecticide used against mosquitoes in outdoor areas, for flies in agricultural settings, for fleas and ticks on pets, on lawns and turf for ants, on flowering plants, and in private dwellings and public buildings.


Spinosad is a naturally-derived strain of bacterium from soil that may be toxic to insects and is most commonly used as flea control for dogs and manage head lice on humans.


Spiromesifen is a tetronic acid insecticide, used to control mite infestations in crops.


Spiroxamine is a fungicide commonly used on wine vineyards, fruit orchards, wheat, rye, and other cereals.


Thiacloprid attacks a variety of insects by disrupting of nerve transmission and causes nerves to fire uncontrollably, leading to hyperexcitation, convulsions, and the death of the affected insects.
