The Pylon Miticide Insecticide is an economical, broad spectrum product that offers superior management over key greenhouse pests. The advanced formula targets caterpillars, western flower, chilli thrips, fungus gnats, variety of mite species, and more. Pylon works by means of meddling with energy production of pests. It uncouples oxidative phosphorylation, preventing conversion of ADP to ATP, which results to the death of mite or insect from the inability to generate its own energy. Application must be done prior to blooming of plants. Pylon gives 14 to 21 days of control relying upon the pest and their population pressure.
To minimize risk of injury to plants, make applications prior to blooming or avoid blooms whenever possible. Apply in the coolest times of day and refer to the Pylon label to evaluate crop safety on any plants you may be treating.
Pylon is not ovicidal and so should be used in rotation with a registered ovicidal product specific for the pest when moderate to high populations of eggs are present. Applications should be made to the immature stages of insects and mites.
When target insect populations are high and potential for multiple generations exist, make a Pylon application at the high rate, then make a sequential application 5 to 7 days later. Make only one sequential application at the 5- to 7-day interval when necessary. See the label for additional instructions regarding resistance management.

I spent $800. on a quart of this for use on my tropical hibiscus because the owner of the nursery where I bought many of them said that he uses an Avid type for spider mites once a week 2 times, and then Pylon on the 3rd week. So, I did exactly as he did in my greenhouses with the Avid type 2 times and then used Pylon on the 3rd week. However, even though I had carefully took off extra leaves off of plants for better coverage and carefully sprayed each leaf on the upper and under sides, the spider mites were back within 6 days. I cannot perpetually be spraying for mites every week of my life. I am thinking that the plants from his nursery have become resistant to this product.
