Pylon TR Total Release Insecticide is the first insecticide of BASF to deliver active ingredients by using total release (TR) technology. Pylon TR Total Release Insecticide contains the active ingredient, chlorfenapyr, that is easy and ready to use and comes in small canisters. It provides widespread control of mites and thrips. It is for the use in closed commercial greenhouses on flowering hanging baskets, bedding plants, potted flowering plants and ornamentals, cut flowers, foliage and fruiting vegetables. Growers will have the ease of use by just placing the can in the greenhouse, closing the vents, doors and windows and pressing the release button and leaving it for a specific time. Two ounces of Plyon TR Total Release Insecticide is able to treat 3,000 square footage of a commercial greenhouse. Growers will save time and money by eliminating water cost, mixing, having accurate product distribution, and avoiding costs of large fogging equipment. For greater control, it can be space mixed with Attan TR micro total release insecticide, Tame/Orthene TR insecticide, Pyrethrum TR micro total release insecticide, or Beethoven TR miticide/insecticide.

Before fogging, remove or cover exposed food. Shut off all exhaust fans and close all windows, doors and ventilators, and every applicance that can be shut off.
Prepare a 3 ft. plant free zone to place canister. Elevate canister above the top of plants ( can be placed on a stool or overturned pot) To treat hanging baskets, empty a basket and put it in.
Hold canister away and press down until locked. Place in plant free zone and then leave the greenhouse immediately and close the door. Use only one canister in one area/room.

This worked wonders in my orchid greenhouse.No damage to the orchids, or even to the delicate flowers. And no residual smell either. I had a problem with thrips, and everyone said they are hard to get rid of. But two Pylon TR bombs, 10 days apart, took care of the thrips, and all the other problems too. Has to be done on a preventative basis though. Also, the Pylon is cheaper here than anywhere else.
We used Pylon TR to control gnats is a sealed
greenhouse with high humidity. The outside
temperature was low enough that there was a
lot of condensation on the inside of the roof panels. After the application we noticed a lot
of spotting on the upper side of the foliage of the crop. It is very white and looks like paint was splattered from above. I believe the product combined with the water that was adhering to the plastic and as the plastic flexed in the windy conditions the concentrated product fell on the foliage below. Although the product killed the target pest and there was no phytotoxicity
it made a big mess on the plants.
Can you recommend a miticide for orchids that is compatible with Orthene for thrips?
I use Orthene on orchids to control thrips.
Pylon TR is a great space mix partner with Attain TR or Tame/Orthene for controlling thrips and mites per label instructions in greenhouses on bedding plants, cut flowers, flower hanging baskets, foliage, potted flowering plants and ornamentals. If you are not treating in a greenhouse area, please let us know and we will find another product alternative that will best fit your needs. Thank you!
