Pest control of garden and garden plants is one of the most time-consuming activities that require certain knowledge and skills, because the key to success in this matter is a properly selected drug used in the right dosages.
Particular difficulty is to classify the pest in order to apply the desired tool. In most cases, this can be handled either by professionals or very experienced gardeners. In order to not have to accurately identify the pest, you can use complex drugs, for example, a spark double effect.
The composition of the drug
The spark double effect is a tablet, which consists of two active substances from the peritroid group - cypermethrin and permethrin. Their action extends to 60 species of plant pests of fruit, berry, flower and vegetable crops.
- Cypermethrin has an insecticidal acaricidal effect, it adversely affects the nervous system of insects, paralyzing its work. It cannot work on egg laying.
- Permethrin is a contact-intestinal neutropic poison that poisons insects, sometimes capable of acting on imago. When a spark is applied, it has a particularly strong effect on the leaf-eating insects, which, by eating a plant covered with a chemical, are poisoned.
Another component of this drug is potash fertilizer in combination with anti-stress compounds, which allows not only to get rid of pests as soon as possible, but also to bring the plant out of the oppressed state along with it.
All the main positive characteristics of the insecticide spark can be summarized as follows:
- Easy to use
- Wide spectrum of action
- Quick effect
- It has no effect on warm-blooded animals and is therefore safe for humans and domestic animals.
- Enhanced form of exposure to insects, which explains the labeling "double effect"
Instructions for use Spark Double Effect
Drug spark double effect is sold as a pill that needs to be dissolved in 10 liters of water. So, without much difficulty, you can get a working solution, the flow rate of which is listed in the table below.
Consumption of working solution
Apple, cherry, pear, cherry, quince,
10 liters per 1-5 trees (depending on their size)
2 l - for a young sapling, 5 l - for an adult tree
Spark double effect, instructions for preparing the working solution from which is indicated above, despite the safety for humans, requires some precautions: before working with the drug, it is better to protect the skin and face from dropping its drops. To do this, wear closed clothes and protect the nasopharynx with a respirator.
Insecticide should be applied three times with a frequency of 7 days, it will allow to destroy not only adult pests, but also their offspring, which may appear after processing from egg laying.
A solution prepared using a spark must be sprayed using a special fine garden sprayer, which will allow you to economize on the liquid and to process the plant as efficiently as possible, so that the liquid is applied to all its organs.
However, in the absence of such, you can use a hand sprayer from those used in indoor floriculture, or, such a “grandmother” method, such as spraying with a broom. However, this method involves the uneconomical use of the drug.
Spark double effect, reviews of which confirm its effectiveness and efficiency, gained popularity in private vegetable growing and fruit growing, due to its availability and ease of use, as well as safety when using it.
It is worth remembering that when carrying out treatments with insecticides, not only harmful, but also useful insects can be put out, therefore, the more accurate the spraying is, the less damage you cause to the fauna of your garden, and this is very important.
We recommend reading:
Fertilizer spark double effect is convenient and efficient, with the right timing when you can spray.

But this preparation is made in such a way and in such a form that it is not necessary to be a professional entomologist or chemist to use it successfully. These factors are the main advantages of this chemical, decisive for many amateur gardeners.
