APPLICATION INFORMATION

KONTOS is a Suspension Concentrate formulation. Following application to plant foliage, KONTOS is fully systemic, moving through phloem and xylem to all plant tissues including new shoot, leaf and root growth. Spray adjuvants with spreading and penetrating characteristics may improve leaf uptake and systemic concentration of active ingredient. The active ingredient contained in KONTOS is active primarily by ingestion. Fecundity of adult insects and mites may be reduced. Make applications as preventative treatments or to coincide with early threshold levels in developing insect and mite populations. KONTOS can be applied by ground equipment (including hand-held application equipment) or through chemigation.

    Kontos SC for Two-Spotted Spider Mite

    By Mw on 06/18/2014

    Verified Purchase

    Works good on immature life stages but not as well on the adult. Had to follow-up with another class of chemical. This is a good one to have in rotation if used early in development. For the money, it should kill adults better and faster. Used it both as a foliar and drench application with similar results; however, the drench rate instructions are not specific enough to apply to landscapes. Probably won't buy again if the same results are produced in the future.
