Meridian 25WG Insecticide Water Dispersible Granules
Meridian 25WG is a broad-spectrum insecticide that is effective when applied at label rates to turfgrass, plant foliage and soil. It is active against many sucking and chewing insect pests by contact and ingestion.
Meridian 25WG is relatively short-lived on the surface of plant foliage, readily absorbed into plant tissues, and rainfast once it has dried. The rapid translaminar absorption and distribution within leaves provides excellent residual control of foliar feeding insects. In the soil, the active ingredient in Meridian 25WG will control soil pests upon contact or ingestion and is also readily taken up by plant roots. The active ingredient moves upwards in the plant to the site of pest infestation. Through feeding on the plant, pests are exposed to the active ingredient in Meridian 25WG. Feeding will stop within minutes to hours of exposure and be followed by death of the pest.
The moderate persistence of Meridian 25WG in the soil and foliage also provides residual control of labeled pests. Meridian 25WG is not active as an ovicide or as an insect growth regulator. Because residues on leaf surfaces are quickly degraded, Meridian 25WG is compatible with beneficial arthropods.
