The remedy is active against leaf rollers, aphids, scale insects and pseudo-scale insects, ticks, copperheads, etc.

How the drug works

Prophylactin operates at an air temperature of +4 ° С. It contains two active substances, the first of which forms a protective film on the branches of trees and shrubs, blocking the flow of oxygen to pests, and the second leads to their death. For the plant itself, the drug is safe, provided that the consumption rates specified in the instructions are observed. Prophylactin provides protection for at least 30 days.

Application features

It is important to carry out the treatment before bud break, at the stage when the garden pests only resume their vital activity after prolonged cold weather.
Prophylactin should be used according to the instructions, using the working solution immediately after preparation - dilution of the liquid in a small amount of water. It is not subject to storage.
