Sven is a pyrethroid insecticide which can be used across a broad range of crops including ornamental plant production, managed amenity turf, permanent grassland, potatoes, cereals & a range of vegetable crops. Sven has a wide spectrum of controllable pests including aphids (see label for full list), red ants, weevil, bibionid larvae, caterpillars, leaf miners and thrips.
As well as controlling insects by contact & ingestion, Sven will also offer a degree of protection to new insects not present at the time of application.
With over 500 species of aphids in Britain they are one of the most common pests in gardens, crops and amenity turf. These sap-sucking insects cause stunted and distorted growth and also excrete honeydew which then encourages sooty mould growth. It is usually possible to see aphid infestations with the naked eye- look for them on shoot tips, flower buds, and the underside of young leaves.
To ensure better penetration to insects in Turf we would recommend using Sven in conjunction with Abzorb Wetting Agent.
