Common Pests and How Mortar Insecticides Can Help Combat Them

In agriculture, safeguarding crops against pests is a constant battle. From tiny aphids to menacing caterpillars, pests can wreak havoc on crops, leading to significant losses for farmers. However, with the right strategies and tools, such as insecticides, farmers can effectively combat these pests and protect their yields. At Dhanuka Agritech, we understand the importance of pest management in agriculture and offer a range of innovative insecticides to help farmers defend their crops. Let’s explore some of the most common pests in agriculture and how insecticides can help combat them.

1. Aphids:

Aphids are small, sap-sucking insects that can quickly multiply and infest crops, causing stunted growth and deformation. Our insecticides containing systemic action can effectively target aphids, disrupting their feeding habits and preventing further damage to crops.

2. Caterpillars:

Caterpillars, the larval stage of moths and butterflies, are notorious for their voracious appetite and ability to devour entire crops. Our insecticides with contact and stomach poison action can provide quick and efficient control of caterpillars, minimising crop damage and ensuring healthy yields.

3. Whiteflies:

Whiteflies are tiny insects that feed on plant sap, leading to yellowing, wilting, and eventual death of the affected plants. Our insecticides offer translaminar and systemic action, allowing them to penetrate plant tissues and target whiteflies effectively, even on the undersides of leaves where they often reside.

4. Thrips:

Thrips are slender, winged insects that feed on plant sap, causing stippling, discolouration, and deformation of leaves and flowers. Dhanuka’s  insecticides with rapid knockdown action can swiftly eliminate thrips, preventing further damage and promoting healthy crop growth.

5. Leafhoppers:

Leafhoppers are agile insects that feed on plant sap, leading to stunted growth, leaf curling, and yellowing of leaves. Dhanuka’s insecticides offer broad-spectrum control, targeting leafhoppers and other sucking pests, while also providing residual activity to protect crops from future infestations.
