ACRAMITE MITICIDE

THE PERFECT FIT FOR MITE CONTROL IN ANY IPM PROGRAM

480 g/L Bifenazate  [GROUP UN INSECTICIDE]

For the control of two-spotted mite, European red mite and bryobia mite, in pome fruit, stone fruit, almonds, fruiting vegetables, cucurbits, papaya and strawberries.

Acramite has powerful protection that kills targeted mites in 3–7 days, then gives long-lasting residual control to wipe out nymphs and late hatches.

Pests controlled:

  • Two-Spotted Mite (Tetranychus urticae)
  • European Red Mite (Panonychus ulmi)
  • Bryobia Mite (Bryobia rubrioculus)

FORMULATION MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Formulation quality of miticides can affect efficacy and performance in the control of specific target mites. 

A potted plant glasshouse trial comparing the efficacy of Acramite to a generic bifenazate formulation on Two-spotted spider mites was undertaken by the NSW Department of Industry in October 2017. 

The trial results show Acramite offering superiority in:

  • control of adult mites
  • control of future generations from hatching eggs over time
  • lethal dosage requirement

ACRAMITE OUTPERFORMS - WHY SETTLE FOR LESS?

Acramite exhibits excellent knockdown and residual control of Two-spotted spider mites (TSM) and sustains its higher efficacy well after the generic bifenazate formulation is reduced to less than half of its control.

LONGER... AND STRONGER

Trial results suggest that higher rates of the generic bifenazate formulation are required to control 90% and 99.9% of the population compared to Acramite.

Controlling mites is critical in keeping plants healthy to maximise production year on year.

Inferior formulations can result in decreased yield if mites are not adequately controlled.

DONT GIVE MITES A CHANCE

For best results:

  • Apply Acramite at first sign of mites

  • Apply to point of run-off at a rate 65mL per 100L of water

  • Thorough coverage of all plant parts is essential for effective control


Acramite’s unique chemistry means it’s highly selective, with minimal effect on beneficial insects and predatory mites whilst controlling pest mites.

Acramite gives you the power you need to control mite species that may show resistance to other miticides.

Ideal for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and resistance management programs.
