Signature Product. Pyola is a broad-spectrum spray

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


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.

Use Pyola Right Up to Harvest Day

For soft-bodied insects like aphids and mites, use 2

teaspoons per quart of water. For use as a dormant spray,

mix 4 teaspoons of Pyola with 1 quart of water. Apply

below 90 degrees F. Spray plants thoroughly until they

are completely wet. Repeat in 1 to 2 weeks if needed.
