Carbine® insecticide / West

Turn aphids away and keep them away with NEW Carbine® insecticide. It provides fast-acting, selective, residual aphid control in alfalfa, lentils, field peas and other pulse crops, excluding soybeans.

With its unique anti-feeding mode-of-action, the active ingredient in Carbine® insecticide, flonicamid, affects aphids' mouthparts so they are unable to feed.

Product Overview

Carbine® insecticide is an innovative product providing fast acting, selective control of aphids, lygus bugs and tarnished plant bugs in pulses and alfalfa. Its unique mode of action works by affecting the potassium channels in the pests' nervous systems, permanently and irreversibly putting a stop to feeding within 30 minutes of application. 

It provides residual control and helps protect both sides of the leaf from yield-robbing pests due to its translaminar activity.

Carbine® insecticide is an ideal partner in integrated pest management (IPM) and insect resistance management (IRM) programs with no known cross-resistance to other active ingredients. It has minimal impact on many important beneficial insects and pollinators* when applied as directed by label. Its unique environmental and toxicological profile make it a sound choice for growers and applicators.
