Pyola is a boon to rose growers. It controls aphids, leafhoppers, leafrollers, sawflies, Japanese beetles and other rose pests.
Signature Product. Pyola is a broad-spectrum spray that combines pyrethrin, a long-popular insecticide derived from pyrethrum flowers, with canola oil extracted from rapeseed. Unlike most pesticides, it controls all stages of the insect’s life cycle, including eggs.
Destroys Adult Insects, Larvae AND Eggs!
So many times, we hear gardeners complain, “The insecticide label says it’ll kill beetles. Well, I sprayed my crops, but I seem to have more beetles than ever. What’s going on?”
With most insecticides, the problem usually is timing. The fact is, some sprays control adult insects, while others kill larvae. Many oil-based sprays suffocate the eggs but are ineffective if they’ve already hatched. Unless you can match the spray to the pest’s life cyce, you may be wasting your effort. And you give the pests more time to proliferate and damage your crops!
That’s the beauty of Pyola, tested and proven in the field. Because Pyola simultaneously attacks adults insects, larvae and eggs, you don’t have to spray as often! Plus, Pyola’s repellent effect lasts for days, discouraging certain insects from feeding and laying eggs on sprayed plants.
For Vegetables, Fruits, Flowers–Even Houseplants
Use Pyola all season on vegetable crops such as corn, tomatoes, soybeans, melons, cucumbers, squash, cabbage, peas and potatoes. Pyola also controls pests on fruit, including apples, cherries, citrus, figs, pears, nuts, grapes, strawberries and raspberries. Use it also on shrubs and trees, as well as on houseplants.
