RIMON: Rimon is a broad-spectrum insect growth regulator that provides excellent pest control on a wide variety of worms, beetles and other immature pests including, but not limited to lygus, whiteflies, thrips, stink bugs and plant bugs. Distributed by Chemtura AgroSolutions, Rimon is also labeled for use on bushberries, head and stem brassica, pome fruits, potatoes, sweet potatoes and stonefruits (except cherries).

The active ingredient in Rimon is novaluron, a chitin inhibitor that interferes with the development and successful molting of target insects. Rimon is ideal for early applications where the majority of the population is at egg hatch to early instars. The unique mode of action also makes Rimon an effective resistance management tool when used in rotation with other insecticides in an IPM program.
