Scorpion 35SL InsecticideSCORPION 35SL: Scorpion 35SL is a broad-spectrum insecticide for use in potatoes. Scorpion is powered by the third-generation neonictinoid dinotefuran. This advanced active ingredient provides excellent activity against potato leafhopper, Colorado potato beetle, flea beetles, psyllids and suppression against aphids.

In addition, Scorpion is classified as a reduced-risk pesticide by the U.S. EPA and has low impact on beneficial insects and predators. Scorpion also features high water solubility, allowing for rapid intake and fast systemic movement throughout the plant. When applied as a foliar spray, it exhibits excellent trans-laminar movement within the leaf to protect all leaf surfaces, including the undersides of leaves.
