REQUIEM possesses a unique mode of action that is unlike any other product on the market today. The active ingredient in REQUIEM is lipophilic – attracted to the oily outer surfaces of target pests – and works to kill target pests in three ways.
First, it breaks down the insect’s exoskeleton. This degradation of the body and joints causes a loss of fluid
and inhibits the pest’s ability to move. Second, REQUIEM clogs the trachea, interrupting the insect’s respiratory system,
preventing respiration and causing suffocation. Lastly, REQUIEM disrupts the insect’s ability to navigate, blinding it from finding sources of food. Without the ability to locate food, the pest stops its destruction of crops and starves.
REQUIEM's distruption of navigation also protects plants from the dangerous effects of plant viruses. Since insects like whiteflies and thrips no longer feed on crops which have been treated with REQUIEM, they no longer pass along the virus from plant to plant.
With three differenct modes of action, the development of resistance to REQUIEM by target pests is unlikely, making it an excellent tool for resistance management, especially alongside other chemistries facing resistance issues.
Labeled for a maximum of 10 treatments per growing season, applications are limited only by a minimal 4-hour restricted entry interval. A 0-day preharvest interval allows for late season control of target pests. REQUIEM is also exempt from residue tolerances, especially important for growers looking to find the most profitable markets. REQUIEM can be used on fruits and vegetables without the challenges of managing residue levels.
Among other sucking pest insecticides, REQUIEM has the least detrimental impact on beneficial wasps, bees, and other natural predators, and can be safely used in most IPM programs.
