Product Overview

Pyrus TR is a specially formulated total release aerosol which protects sensitive ornamentals against listed insects. Featuring a powerful combination of two active ingredients, pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide, this unique formula delivers effective control of plant-damaging insects such as aphids, caterpillars, fungus gnats, mites, moths, whiteflies and more. It is safe to use even on the most delicate plants and crops in commercial greenhouses. It works through contact and by feeding, plus its special formulation offers a versatile REI time of 12 hours. Its key uses include bedding plants, cut flowers, flowering plants, evergreens, ground covers, ornamental trees, and shrubs. It is recommended to apply the product at the first sign of pest activity and is an excellent rotational partner with other Atticus aerosol products. Available in 2 oz aerosol can and treats up to 3,000 sq. ft.

Contents of container must be at room temperature before use. Therefore, containers must be stored at room temperature (above 65 degrees Fahrenheit) for 24 hours before application.

Make sure spray is unobstructed above units by foliage or other physical objects in order to obtain maximum distribution of fog.

NOTICE: Good greenhouse management must overrule the use of this product when any conditions might be created by tightly closing greenhouses that would harm plant foliage or flowers. Example: Creation of high temperatures or humidity conditions.

DO NOT use this product in greenhouses with unvented or defective gas heating systems or when open combustion exists.


Use Sites:

Ornamental crops in commercial greenhouses including, but not limited to:

Bedding plants, Containerized plants, Cut flowers, Evergreens, Flowering plants, Foliage plants, Ground covers, Growing crops, Ornamental trees and shrubs.


Ants (excluding Carpenter, Fire, Harvester & Pharaoh), Aphids, Beetles (Colorado Potato Beetle, Confused Flour Beetles, Cucumber Beetles, Dried Fruit Beetles, Flea Beetles, Red Flour Beetles, Watermelon Beetles), Cabbage Worms, Cadelles, Crickets, Fungus Gnats, Hornworms, Indianmeal Moths, Leafhoppers, Mealy Bugs, Mediterranean Flour Moths, Mites, Moths, Rose Aphids, Rose Chafers, Rose Slugs, Scale, Silverfish, Spider Mites, Spiders (excluding Black Widow & Brown Recluse), Trogoderma, Thrips and Whiteflies

Mode of Action:

The active ingredient in this product, pyrethrin, is a member of the class of insecticides known as pyrethroids (Group 3A). This product is effectively introduced to the insect by contact and feeding activity.

Resistance Management:

This product’s active ingredient targets sodium channel modulators and effects nerve action within the insect according to the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) under Group 3A. Multiple uses of an insecticide with a single given mode of action can result in the development of resistance.

DO NOT make more than two (2) consecutive applications of this product before rotating to a chemical with a different mode of action.

DO NOT make sequential applications to crops unless applied in combination with other effective insecticides with a different mode of action.

Crop protection products should always be used in integrated pest management programs that are suitable for the crop pest complex involved. Any pest management program undertaken should coordinate different chemistry classes of insecticides in their spray schedules, ensure thorough coverage of targeted crop/pest(s). Use proper chemical rates per label directions, monitoring pest populations and other factors as conditions warrant. Consult your Cooperative Extension Service or Atticus sales representative for suggestions on minimizing insect resistance.

Preapplication Directions:

Apply this product when pest or damage typical of indicated pest is observed. Shut off all exhaust fans and close all windows, doors and ventilators. DO NOT place within 10 horizontal feet of any ignition sources such as pilot lights (shut off gas valves), other open flames or running electrical appliances that cycle off and on.

Prepare a 3 foot plant free zone in which to place container. Elevate the container so that the top of the can is above the top of the plant canopy. Make sure spray is unobstructed by foliage or other physical objects in order to obtain maximum distribution of product. Common practice is to place the container on a stool or overturned pot to elevate it to allow for unobstructed release to treat hanging baskets, an empty basket can be used to hold the container and elevate it to the hanging basket level. Low volume horizontal air flow may help optimize performance. Apply when foliage is dry and greenhouse temperature is between 60 degrees Fahrenheit to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep container at room temperature (about 65 degrees Fahrenheit). Prior to a full scale application, run a small scale test and observe for plant damage and performance. See Plant Safety Information for more details.

All human and animal occupants of the greenhouse must be removed before treatment. Greenhouse must be ventilated according to the requirements of the Worker Protection Standard before reentry.

Total Release Dosage:

Thorough coverage is achieved by the normal air movement within a greenhouse. The chemical will move around and throughout the plant foliage due to the small particle size produced and the normal ebb and flow movement of the air. Both top and bottom of the plant foliage is covered with particles during application.

DO NOT use in small, enclosed spaces such as closets, cabinets or under counters or tables. Use of a Total Release container in an enclosed space may cause it to explode, resulting in injury to people or damage to property. Initially, make 2 applications 1 week apart. Additional applications may be made at 2 week intervals as long as immature insects are present or adult egg-laying is expected.

Use one 2 ounce container per 3,000 square feet (50,000 cubic feet). For greenhouses with tough to control insects, 2 containers per 3,000 square feet (50,000 cubic feet) is permissible. For smaller greenhouse spaces (less than 3,000 square feet), use one container. Depending on the severity of the insect infestation, the product can be applied 1 to 3 times per week.

To Activate Containers:

Hold the container facing away from the body and depress the actuator until it is locked down. Place the container in the plant-free zone and quickly leave the treatment area. If activating more than one container in the treatment area, begin at the end farthest from the door, and place containers as the applicator moves towards the exit door. Once all containers have been activated, immediately leave the treatment area and close the door. Use low volume horizontal air flow or have fans off for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.

Plant Safety Information:

The phytotoxic potential of this product has been assessed on a wide variety of common ornamental plants with no phytotoxicity observed. Not all plant species, varieties, and cultivars have been tested for tolerance to this product or pesticide treatments preceding or following those of this product.

Local conditions can also influence plant tolerance and may not match those under which testing has been conducted. Test the product on a sample of the plants to be treated to ensure that a phytotoxic response will not occur prior to large-scale use.

Because many cultivars within a plant species vary in tolerance to chemical applications and growing conditions, the grower must recognize these differences and test the product accordingly. At a minimum, always test a small group of representative plants for tolerance to this product under local growing conditions and before large-scale use. Grower assumes responsibility for testing species suitability under local growing conditions by treating a small number of plants at the specified rate.

At a minimum, this should include evaluating treated plants for several weeks following treatment for possible injury or other effects. To the extent consistent with applicable law, by applying this product, the user assumes responsibility for any crop damage or other liability associated with factors beyond the manufacturer’s control, such as weather, presence of other materials, and manner or use of application. Follow all restrictions and limitations in this label.
