The drug is more active against young individuals, the membranes of which absorb liquids better, that is, when an insect gets on the body, Actellic gives a better result, but when penetrating into the intestine along with plant parts, the effect of the toxin is less pronounced, therefore during processing you should try to sprinkle the areas with particular care on which the greatest accumulation of parasites is observed.

How to apply Actellic - the rate of consumption of funds

Instructions for use Actellic recommends diluting in warm water with a temperature of up to + 40 ° C, while the air temperature in the room where the solution is prepared should not fall below + 20 ° C, this is due to the fact that the emulsion is less viscous in heat structure and dissolves faster. The working solution of Actellica under conditions is more uniform and effective.

To dissolve Actellic instructions for use advises in a concentration of 0.1 or 0.15%. To get a product with a concentration of 0.1%, it is enough to pour the contents of one vial of Actellica into 2 liters of water and mix well, and it is recommended to use it with a moderate and low degree of damage to plants by insect pests. A more concentrated solution (0.15%) is prepared by dissolving the contents of one ampoule in 1 liter of water - it is used for dense plant colonization.

For the Actellic working solution, the consumption rate is individual for different types of crops, taking into account the age of plants, their size and much more, all of which is described in detail in the instructions for use of the preparation on its packaging. Instructions for use Actellic recommends spending for fruit trees from 2 liters of working solution on each tree (if the plant does not exceed 6 years old), and up to 10 liters (for fruiting trees).

As for berry bushes - currants and gooseberries, then from 1 to 1.5 liters of Aktellik's working solution is spent on one plant, depending on the size of the bush, and the same amount is spent on processing one vine.

The consumption of vegetables, melons and grains, as well as strawberries ranges from 1 to 1.5 liters of Actellica per 10 m², but for greenhouse tomatoes and cucumbers consumption is slightly higher - up to 2 l / 10 m². On houseplants, the consumption rates of Aktellik coincide with the greenhouse.

It is important to remember that before processing by Aktellik it is necessary to remove the branches that are most damaged by pests and shoots, and it is desirable to burn them immediately after harvest so that insects do not move to healthy cultures.

Actellic is used for irrigation of the soil as the main measure against insects and their larvae preparing for wintering, for this purpose they prepare a solution with a concentration of 0.15% and irrigate the soil, spending up to 1 liter per square meter of the greenhouse.

Optimum effectiveness of treatments can be traced when processing plantings immediately after the rain, since in this case insects are more active, which means that they are easier to destroy by direct exposure to the chemical. After the rain on the plants, the stomata are open, and the active ingredients of Aktellik more easily penetrate into the vascular system.

Does Actellic have an analogue with which to replace it?

Analogues of the drug Actellica do not indicate the instructions for use from the manufacturer, but they exist - the same active ingredient that is included in the composition of Aktellik is contained in the preparations of Kamikaze and Phosbecid. They have a different concentration, and therefore the norms of dilution and consumption are significantly different from those recommended for aktellika. The drug Actellic replacement can be found in other groups of insecticides:

When using them, it is necessary to follow the instructions for use, as they have a different chemical and biological composition, concentration and method of application. Unfortunately, their action is not always equivalent in relation to various types of pests, and in efficiency they are inferior to Actellica.

In order not to harm yourself and the environment, Actellic, the instructions for use of which were examined earlier, should not be used inappropriately, and during spraying - the face, body, eyes and airways should be better protected by clothing and special means.

Description of Actellic

How does Actellic work?

Actellic is a non-systemic acaricide insecticide. By type of exposure refers to entero-contact. The tool has a high penetrating (fumigant) activity and is able to kill insects living in hard to reach places or on the back of the leaves.

The active substance enters the organism of the pest through the respiratory tract and with food. It then deactivates the enzyme responsible for nerve conduction. This causes paralysis, and then death. Insects die during the time interval from 5-10 minutes to several hours (depending on the species, developmental stage, weather).

The advantage of Aktellik is its long-lasting ability to remain active on inert surfaces (walls, metal, wooden structures, etc.). Pests will not appear in barn stocks for 8-12 months. After processing, the drug is able to "protect" agricultural plants for 2-3 weeks., Garden, indoor - 1-2 weeks.

How to apply Actellic to the treatment of indoor plants?

Actellic is used for the treatment of indoor plants only in the case of mass destruction by ticks, scutes, thrips, and if other means and methods of pest control were ineffective. According to the instructions for use, the drug is diluted in a proportion of 2 ml per 1 liter of water. This volume of solution is enough to handle 10 m 2.

Moisten the greens, be sure to treat the stems and the bottom side of the leaves. If the plant has been damaged by pests that burrow into the ground, water it with a solution. For maximum effect, cover the flowers with a polyethylene or plastic cap.

Processing should be carried out in a ventilated room, for example, on the balcony. Leave the flowers there for 1-2 days. During these days, entering the room is not recommended. After 7-10 days you can spend the second processing of indoor plants.

Use for processing residential premises

Actellic can be used to treat residential areas from the following parasites:

The tool is sold in the form:

  • dry powder (for dilution with water),
  • ampoules (2-5 ml)
  • concentrated emulsion (capacity 3-5 l).

The basis of Aktellik is phosphorus. The active ingredient has high penetrating properties, it is able to exterminate pests in hard-to-reach places of plants. The remedy enters the body of insects along with breathing and food. It confirmed its effectiveness in the fight against aphids, mites, thrips, greenhouse whitefly, sawflies, leaf beetles, scale insects and other pests.

The developers say the following effectiveness Aktellika:

  1. The death of pests occurs in the interval of 10 minutes. up to 3-5 hours. It depends on wind, precipitation, humidity, lightness and other weather factors. The speed and impact of Actellica is also influenced by the type and stage of development of the insect.
  2. After treatment, the insecticide continues to protect the plant for 1-3 weeks. The wider the area of ​​sprayed crops, the longer. Processing stocks in the barn allows you to protect them from pests for up to 8 months.

How to use insecticide

The instructions for this agrochemical are simple. For processing the usual area is easiest to use ampoules Aktellika. Dilution of bulk cans is relevant only for huge agricultural areas. Ampoules of 2 ml will be enough for 2 liters of prepared liquid for spraying both garden and room crops. The consumption rate of the working mixture Aktellika:

  • for plants and shrubs in the greenhouse - 1 l per 10 square meters. m
  • in the open ground - 1.5-2 liters for the same area,
  • for trees - 2-5 liters, depending on the height and crown.

Tip To determine the exact dose will help the instructions to the drug with the recommendations.

When preparing Aktellika, observe dosage accuracy. Individual plants are sensitive to increased concentrations. In particularly advanced cases, experts recommend diluting 2 ml of Aktellik in 1 liter of water. Reviews gardeners say that usually only enough processing. Developers confirm: repeated spraying in a season should be carried out in exceptional cases.

Features of the application Aktellika

Experts give such tips:

  1. Use only freshly prepared insecticide solution. Dispose of leftovers.
  2. Spray the plants no later than 4-6 hours before the rain. Other mandatory conditions for the use of Actellica are the absence of strong wind, air temperature is + 12 ... + 25 ° С. Do not work in direct sunlight, morning or evening.

Мнения о применении Актеллика

Садоводы и огородники подтверждают высокую эффективность препарата, о которой заявляют производители. Aktellik is used to protect cereals, vegetables, berries, fruit crops, ornamental plants (quite often - in the care of a flower garden). Apply it to the store, food warehouses, storage and forest plantations. Insecticide is equally effective in open and closed grounds.

The main disadvantage of Actellica does not relate to the quality of exposure to insects - a sharp and unpleasant smell. When using an agrochemical in an enclosed space, be sure to work in a respirator or mask, protect exposed parts of the body, and after finishing air the room. In addition, Aktellik has another drawback: addictive ticks and species that produce several generations over a season. Against such insects, it is better to combine the drug with other insecticides. At the same time, the use of Aktellik is unacceptable in combination with alkaline agents, in particular, with Bordeaux mixture.
