(Active substances: deltamethrin)
decis is our broad spectrum pyrethroid insecticide that can be used on a wide range of crops including oilseed rape, beans, peas, cereals and vegetables. decis controls aphids, caterpillars and a range of other pests.
Because decis is a unique single-isomer pyrethroid, it is not only highly effective, but is selective and can be used at lower rates. It will not harm beneficials such as lacewings and will not affect bees if used at the right rates and at the right time. decis also has a longer duration of activity to ensure the maximum protection for your crop. Unlike many other pyrethroids, decis is specifically approved for use in flowering crops.
