Efficacy of Provecta®

There was 5.0% mortality observed in the water only control treatment.
There was 7.5% mortality observed in the untreated control treatment.

Preparation of working solution

Provecta® mixed with water only

Provecta® does not contain any toxic substances - the product is safe for the environment. It is effective against many species of insects and has a non-specific effect on larvae and adult forms of insects, it causes their immobilization. Provecta® is neutral for the environment, does not cause its chemical contamination.

BED BUG CONTROL
CONCENTRATION: 2,0 %
All places where the pests gather, should be treated thoroughly. The entire infested / affected area including cracks, crevices, and any location where insects may gather e. g. mattresses, bed frames, head boards, upholstered furniture should be covered. The follow-up application should be conducted 21 days later, but no later than 28 days after the initial application. In temperature over 30°C, repeat the procedure 14 days after the initial application or whenever the population level increases and re-infestation has been noted.
CRAWLING INSECTS
(cockroaches, black ants, pharaoh ants)
CONCENTRATION: 1,0 % (ANT CONTROL)
ARACHNIDS (spiders) 2,0 % (OTHER CRAWLING INSECTS AND ARACHNIDS CONTROL)
Apply formulation topically using a fine mister (LV) - recommended droplet size: 80 - 100 microns. Formulation needs to be reapplied whenever the population become severe and upcoming insects have been seen.
FLYING INSECTS - INDOOR TREATMENT
(flies, mosquitoes)
CONCENTRATION: 1,0 %Apply formulation topically using a fine mister (LV) - recommended droplet size: above 50 microns (80 - 100 microns is the optimum range). Ideally apply topically in the evening when insects (especially flies) are resting on surfaces. Formulation needs to be reapplied whenever the population become severe.
FLYING INSECTS - OUTDOOR TREATMENT
(mosquitoes)
CONCENTRATION: 0,1 %Apply formulation to mosquito resting locations (small trees, bushes etc.) using a fine mister (LV) - recommended droplet size: above 50 microns (80 - 100 microns is the optimum range). Do not exceed 0,1% concentration when applied on insects present on plants. Higher concentrations may cause phytotoxicity effect (plant damage).
STORAGE PRODUCT PESTS CONTROL
CONCENTRATION: 1,0 %
Apply formulation using a fine mister (LV) - recommended droplet size: 45-60 microns. Ideally apply as a space and topical treatment for both flying and resting individuals.

Preparation of working solution

Provecta® mixed with insecticide

Provecta® acts synergistically, reinforces the effectiveness of insecticide and increases the performance of the treatment. It ensures an even distribution of the insecticide on a treated surface. The product reduces the surface tension and allows getting to insect's hiding places.

CONCENTRATION: 0,1 %
Provecta® should be used in 0,1% (1ml/1l) concentration, mixed with an insecticide spray solution prepared in advance. Prepare an insecticide working solution. Add a proper dose of Provecta®. Shake or stir well. Special care should be taken while using Provecta® mixture on the surface susceptible to damage / stains e.g. mattresses. Trial treatment is recommended before proper treatment.

ALL IN WEB is the technology of creating a 3 – dimensional molecular structure, entirely permeable, which causes the pest’s immediate immobilization.

In contrast to standard insecticides based on a neurotoxic mechanism or having a direct chemical interaction with biochemical and physiological functions of pests, ALL IN WEB provides a purely physical mode of action similar to a sticky trap. The most significant advantages of the technology are:

  • the lack of resistance to the product,
  • no resilience of the treated populations.

All In Web technology was developed and optimized to control urban pests. The different method of application is the factor that distinguishes it from other technologies based on the physical immobilization mechanism developed by ICB Pharma. These technologies differ in features that enable their effective and safe usage, such as:

  • the length of the polymer chain,
  • the associated density of the cross-linking net,
  • the thickness of the generated 3-dimentional net, structure responsible for the immobilization of the pest.

The parameters of ALL IN WEB technology optimized to:

  • natural habitats,
  • the vitality,
  • size and strength of the pest

enhance their effective elimination. The technology is intended for the use in residential and industrial areas or hospitals and it is entirely safe for the users and their health. The product based on ALL IN WEB does not stain and has no effect on losing color of the treated surfaces which is one of the key aspects in the control of urban pests, such as bedbugs, fleas, etc.

The product consists of the mixture of specific silicon polimers with cross-linked agents. It creates entirely permeable, polimeric net structure on the pest’s body in the process of polycondensation.

The structure evenly spreads on the insects’ body causing their immediate external immobilization and blocking their vital functions. This results in an immediate elimination of the targeted species.

FAQ

IS PROVECTA® EFFECTIVE AGAINST PESTS’ EGGS?
PROVECTA® is effective against active developmental stages, e.g. larvae, nymphs and adults forms. It is recommended to repeat the treatment when new individuals hatch i.e. in case of bed bugs it is 3-4 weeks after initial treatment.
DOES PROVECTA® CAUSE ANY STAINS ON SPRAYED SURFACES?
Working solution of PROVECTA® does not cause damage, stain or stickiness on the treated surface. The product’s degradation deposit does not pose any threat to people and animals.
WHAT IS THE EFFICACY AND THE MODE OF ACTION OF PROVECTA® WITH NO INSECTICIDE?
PROVECTA® in mixture with water causes the immediate external immobilization. The product’s mode of action can be compared to a sprayable trap or spider’s web.
DOES PROVECTA® HAVE AN EFFECT ON THE PESTS THAT ENTER FRESHLY SPRAYED SURFACE?
PROVECTA® is effective only on the insects present in the range of application during the moment of treatment.
CAN PROVECTA® BE APPLIED IN THE PRESENCE OF PEOPLE AND ANIMALS?
According to the toxicological data, PROVECTA® can be used in the presence of people and animals when used according to the instruction on the label.
IS IT RECOMMENDED TO REMOVE THE PLANTS FROM THE PLACE OF A TREATMENT DURING THE APPLICATION OF PROVECTA®?
No, but it is recommended to avoid spraying the plants in order to prevent the possible phytotoxic reaction.
CAN PROVECTA® BE APPLIED BY ULV DEVICES?
The spraying should be performed only by the use of LV (low volume) devices. Do not use the ULV sprayers. The recommended droplet size: 80-120 μm (no smaller than 50 μm).
