Includes management options for commercial and home use.

In all cases, follow the instructions on the pesticide label. The PNW Insect Management Handbook has no legal status, whereas the pesticide label is a legal document. Read the product label before making any pesticide applications.

Note: Products are listed in alphabetical order and not in order of preference or superiority of pest control.

Note: To prolong the effectiveness of insecticides, an effective insect resistance management program must be part of an IPM program that involves sampling and monitoring, treatment thresholds, and biological and cultural control. Do not use pesticides with the same mode of action on back-to-back generations of a pest.

Active ingredients marketed under other product names may provide equivalent control: read product label first to check legal status before making any application.
