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
