Effective pest control with Kata


Effective control of drosophila, eriophyid and thrips in berries farms with Kata Control.

As berries cultivation expands, growers face increasing challenges in pest management. Three pests that can cause significant damage to berries crops are Drosophila, Eriophyid mites and Thrips. Fortunately, an effective solution to control these pests exists in the form of Kata Control spray oil.

Drosophila, also known as the spotted wing drosophila (SWD), is a small fruit fly that lays its eggs on ripening fruit. The larvae then feed on the fruit, causing it to rot and reducing its quality. Kata Control spray oil can be used to control SWD by suffocating the eggs and larvae.

Eriophyid mites are another pest that can damage berries crops. These microscopic mites feed on the leaves and cause a silvering or bronzing effect on the foliage. They can also deform the fruit and reduce yield. Kata Control spray oil can be used to control eriophyid mites by suffocating them and disrupting their feeding behavior.

Thrips are tiny insects that feed on the leaves and flowers of berries plants. They can transmit viruses and cause significant damage to the crop. Kata Control spray oil can be used to control thrips by smothering them and interfering with their feeding and reproduction.

When using Kata Control spray oil for pest control, it is important to apply it properly. The oil should be mixed with water and applied evenly to the foliage and fruit using a sprayer. It should be applied during the cooler hours of the day to avoid damaging the plants. 

Kata Control spray oil is an effective solution for controlling Drosophila, Eriophyid and Thrips in berries farms. By suffocating these pests and disrupting their feeding and reproduction. 

Benefits of using Kata Control in berries farms:

Kata Control spray oil is a versatile tool for controlling pests and diseases in berries crops. Here are some of the benefits of using Kata Control spray oil in berries farms:

  1. Broad-spectrum control: Kata Control spray oil can control a wide range of pests, including Drosophila, Eriophyid mites, and Thrips, as well as some fungal and bacterial diseases. This broad-spectrum control can simplify pest management and reduce the need for multiple applications of different pesticides.
  2. Resistance management: Over-reliance on a single mode of action pesticide can lead to the development of resistance in pests. Kata Control spray oil offers an alternative mode of action, helping to prevent the development of resistance and prolonging the effectiveness of other pesticides.
  3. Safe and environmentally friendly: Kata Control spray oil is safe for humans and the environment, as it breaks down quickly and does not persist in the environment. Kata Control is certified as 100% biodegradable.
  4. Easy application: Kata Control spray oil can be easily applied using conventional sprayers, making it a convenient option for growers. It can be applied during different stages of plant growth, from bud break to post-harvest, depending on the pest and disease pressure.
  5. Improved plant health: Kata Control spray oil can improve the health and vigor of berries plants by reducing the pest and disease pressure. This can lead to higher yields and better quality fruit, as well as improved plant resilience to environmental stresses.
  6. Organic farming: Kata Control spray oil is certified organic by Kiwa BCS, it can be used in organic and sustainable farming systems, reducing the reliance on synthetic pesticides.

The benefits of using Kata Control spray oil in berries farms are many and varied. From broad-spectrum pest control to resistance management, safe and environmentally friendly application, and improved plant health, Kata Control spray oil is a valuable tool for growers seeking to maintain healthy crops and maximize yields.
