Hachi-Hachi® SC Insecticide is Now Registered for Use in California

California Growers now have a superior new tool to control thrips, aphids, mealybugs, scales, lepidopteran insects, and more.

Hachi-Hachi SC is active on all life stages of targeted insects; eggs, immature stages, and adults.  Hachi-Hachi SC stops insects from feeding and oviposition within hours of application.

“Hachi-Hachi SC is driven by a unique technology that offers broad-spectrum control of insect pests while providing a resistance management tool,” states Mark Brotherton, Portfolio Leader for SePRO Corporation.  “It’s immediate stop-feed action halts insect pests from further damaging crops.”

Hachi-Hachi SC contains the active ingredient tolfenpyrad, a new chemistry for California growers.  Hachi-Hachi SC acts by inhibiting cellular respiration in insects.  Research has demonstrated Hachi-Hachi SC to be highly effective in control insect pests such as thrips, aphids, mealybugs, scales, lepidopteran insects and added suppression of whiteflies, powdery mildew and downy mildew.  The formulation is very easy to use and has excellent crop safety on labeled crops.
