Runner 2F 1 l
(liquid insecticide [EC] containing 240 g/l methoxyfenozide)
Environmentally friendly, selective insecticide with excellent oviposition and unique larvae-killing properties
MECHANISM OF ACTION
in helmet with Apple Runner logo
M.A.C. compound = molt inducing mode of action. Runner mimics (mimics) the moth molting hormone ecdysone. After ingestion of the active ingredient, premature, accelerated (i.e. unnatural for the caterpillar) molting is initiated, which the larva cannot complete and starves to death.
The aim in developing the active ingredient in Runner was to create a super-larvae-killing formulation. Methoxyphenozide is so active that just 70 nanograms (one billion times less than a gram) can kill an adult caterpillar. M.A.C. compounds represent the newest group of developmental control agents and can therefore be used as resistance-busting formulations.
Runner is effective against all moth larvae. After ingestion of the food, it acts through the larval gastrointestinal tract, but also has contact and ovicidal activity.
PROPOSED CROP PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY
Treatments in apples and grapes should be carried out at different times according to the life history of each pest, based on forecasts:
- For apple moth (Cydia pomonella), treat when the first generation is heavily swarmed, then repeat 2-3 times in blocks every 7-10 days, depending on the swarming intensity and weather.
- Against acnaceae (Leucoptera scitella, Phyllonorycter spp.), timing should be based on sex pheromone prediction, during the period of swarming strength, in the days before egg laying or against freshly laid eggs. Repeat the treatment in blocks of 2-3 times every 7 to 10 days!
In apples, Runner is applied up to 3 times per growing season.
- For grapevine moths (Lobesia botrana, Clysia=Eupoecilia ambiquella), treat at larval stage, not earlier than the so-called 'black-shield' stage of the eggs, 8 days after the swarming stage has intensified. The second generation is sprayed immediately before cluster closure.
In maize, apply 2-4 days after the peak of swarming (or if the pheromone trap catches more than 5 moths per day).
For cotton moths, spray at 0,5 l/ha for control of larvae hatching when young. The product is long-lasting after foliage emergence. As the active ingredient is light and rain resistant, Runner does not lose its efficacy in sun and rain when applied to bare areas.
In forestry and public areas, Runner treatments are recommended to be applied at or within two weeks after the larval emergence of the cotton moth (harmful moth species). The product is no longer effective against overwintered eggs. Runner has adequate holding power when used in a broadleaf stand. The applied formulation has good rain resistance and does not decompose in sunlight. Larval feeding stops within a few hours of ingestion, so damage to the larvae should cease within 1-2 days of spraying! For use in public areas, treatment may be carried out between 22-03 hours and the public concerned must be informed.
PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
- The effectiveness of control measures is enhanced by timely green work. As effectiveness depends on the consumption of the treated part of the plant, proper spray application is essential.
- Use shorter spray cycles during periods of intensive fruit or foliage growth.
- In apples, it is also advisable to control flying insects in case of heavy moth infestation and continuous swarming. In such cases, a combination of Runner 2F 0,5 l/ha + Reldan 40EC 1,5 l/ha is recommended.
- In maize, it can be applied by a linear irrigation system with a chemical pump (5 litres/m2 of water). The dose of Runner is 0,6 l/ha. For better adhesion, add 2-3 l/ha of rapeseed oil to the spray.
