Targeted contact insecticide for use against Thrip in all edible and non-edible crops. Guard ‘n’ Aid for Thrip controls and acts quickly against eggs, larval stages and adult stages. Its Pyrethrum based and works both indoor and outdoor including on hard surfaces.
Its main active ingredient is Pyrethrum which has been used for centuries as an insecticide! Pyrethrum is an oil based natural insecticide made from the dried flower heads of Chrysanthemum and targets the respiratory organ and nervous system of insects. It’s considered to be amongst the safest insecticides for use around food.
Timing of the application:
Since the plant needs to convert the eliciting effects from HALO into biochemical processes, the best effects are obtained when the product is applied to physiologically active plants. Treatments are recommended around critical crop physiological growth stages, such as flower induction, fruit set, fruit enlargement and pre-harvest. In some perennial crops, the treatment of HALO in the previous season can affect the plant in the following growth cycle or spring. This can also benefit cuttings/clones taken from the treated plant. This can result in earlier bud formation and hence greater flowering potential.
Always apply foliar feeds when the sun is down or when the lights are off to avoid scorching your plant.
Trials are also showing great benefits as a seed soak in some crops and this research is continuing.
Top Tip: If you need to keep your plants small, do not apply in the vegetative stage of their development.
How to apply:
Mix one sachet with 500ml of water and spray. Apply 2-4 times throughout the growth cycle. Spray directly onto leaves at low light levels or just before grow lights are switched off. Treatments are recommended around critical crop physiological growth stages such as exponential vegetative growth, flower induction and 1 week before harvest.
Top Tip: Let tap water stand for 24 hours before mixing with HALO
Mix HALO in the water at a dilution rate of 10ml per litre of tap water and apply with a sprayer. A HALO 2.5g soluble sachet will give maximum benefit when mixed with 500ml of water. Mixed in 1 litre of water it will be less concentrated but still, offer great results. In general, apply every 2 weeks in flowering and once during the last week.
Soak your seeds or tubers in a concentrated solution, 1 part HALO to 10 parts water. Allow to dissolve into the solution for at least 30 minutes and shake to aid dissolving then soak your seeds or tubers for 10 minutes prior to sowing.
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL
HALO is foliar applied or used as a seed or tuba pre-treatment. Halo’s unique natural protein leads the plant to believe it is under attack, this ‘tricks’ the plant and naturally forces the plant to ‘defend itself’ turning on stress-defence and growth systems and reproducing very rapidly. If a plant ‘believes’ it is under attack, it will grow and reproduce at rapid rates as a means of ensuring it’s survival. This results in a healthier and more productive plant with an increase in crop vigour, stamina, nutrient uptake and reproductive growth (depending on the time of application).
Both laboratory and field studies have shown that HALO treated plants exhibit accelerated growth, earlier flowering and early/increased fruit sets. These observed effects on growth and development will lead to a stronger, healthier plant, that is less susceptible to disease with increased yields and a shortened time to harvest.
