Gnatrol® SC

What is Gnatrol® SC?

  • Gnatrol® SC controls the larvae of fungus gnats in ornamental plants (protected crops).

  • Gnatrol® SC contains spores and protein crystals of the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. israelensis (Bti) strain AM65-52.

What are the advantages of Gnatrol® SC?

  • Quick effectiveness

  • Easy to apply

  • Mechanism relies on different toxins resulting in reduced sensitivity to resistance development

  • Specific effectiveness against larvae of fungus gnat

How does Gnatrol® SC work?

  • While feeding, the fungus gnat larvae consume Bti protein crystals after treatment with Gnatrol® SC

  • The protein crystals are activated in the intestinal system and broken down into toxins that bind specifically to the intestinal wall

  • Leaks form in the intestinal cells and the intestinal wall is destroyed

  • Larvae die quickly after ingestion

  • Younger larvae are more sensitive to the product than older ones

Note: Use plant protection products safely. Read the label and product information before use. Follow the instructions for use to avoid danger to people and the environment. Only apply plant protection products that are approved in the country of application.
