MultiMite Control is a plant-derived insecticide that targets all mites, aphids, thrips, whiteflies,stinkbugs, and leaf/plant hoppers. This extract is derived from the Sophora plant, which
functions through enzymatic inhibition eradicating adults and preventing the pest from ever reaching their adult stage. It is applicable on the leaves as a foliar spray, kills on contact or in-
gestion, and is fast acting. MultiMite Control leads a new class of bio-rational insecticides that have 0-hour REI and no toxicity restrictions.
At the beginning of mite infestations, use 5.8 mL (1 1/6 tsp.) of product with one gallon (1 gal.) of water in order to dilute MultiMite Control. It can also be used in other quantities respecting always the dilution rate of 1:650, product to water. After dilution, spray the product onto plant leaves. In area applications, use 10.4 oz to 20.8 oz per acre of land. Do not apply prior to excessive rains since this may reduce product effectiveness.
MultiMite Control uses natural plant extracts of Oxymatrine as the primary ingredient to reach the highest level of efficacy, while greatly reducing the environmental impact of using this product. Oxymatrine is extracted from the Sophora root and is used as a pesticide to prevent mite, thrip, aphid, whitefly and other insect infestations
If ingested, may cause stomach irritation. It is nontoxic to people and livestock and causes no pollution to water and soil. Appropriate land management practices should be used at all times with any pesticide; this material should be prevented from entering public or private water supplies (including wells) and any lake,stream, or river.
MultiMite Control must be applied on leaves. Applying the product on leaves inhibits feeding and can kill aphids on contact. Oxymatrine causes paralysis of an insect’s nerve center, then solidifies albumen and blocks the air vents of the pest, causing it to suffocate and die. It also suppresses food absorption of insects and reduces larvae livability. Oxymatrine also hinders their growth and prevents insects from laying eggs.
• Effective against all mites (spider and two-spotted).
• Effective against aphids (apple, cotton, green peach, and mealy plum).
• Effective against plant-hoppers and stink bugs.
• Effective against thrips (flower and palm).
• Effective against whitefly (greenhouse and sweet potato).
MultiMite Control was tested on a wide variety of crops with an average efficacy greater than 75% on various aphids, mites, and whitefly field tests.
Effective against the following target aphids, mites, thrips, and whitefly listed below:
|Crop Type||Dilution Rate||Mix Rate||Foliar Spray||Time to Use|
|All crops||1:650||5.8 mL/ 1 gal
19.7 oz/ 100 gal
|0.2 - 0.5 oz/ 1,000ft2
10.4 - 20.8 oz/ Acre

|At the start of mite occurrence|
The mix rate for MultiMite Control is 5.8 mL (1 1/6 tsp.) per 1 gallon of water that should only be used as a foliar spray.
