Group 3 and Group 4 insecticides
Mode of Action
Controls insects primarily through ingestion
Penetrates through the leaf surface and moves in a locally systemic manner
Also controls insects that feed on the underside of leaves
Provides long residual control of sucking insects
Controls insects primarily through contact
Remains mostly on leaf surfaces
For resistance management, please note that Endigo contains Group 3 and Group 4 insecticides. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Endigo and other Group 3 or 4 insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.
To delay insecticide resistance:
Where possible, rotate the use of Endigo or other Group 3 or 4 insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field.
Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group when such use is permitted.
Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development.
Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area.
