Enstar AQ, a water-based formulation, features broad-spectrum, long residual control of whiteflies, thrips, aphids, soft-bodied and armored scales, mealybugs, leaf miners, glassy-winged sharpshooters, and fungus gnats. Enstar AQ is for use on ornamental plants in greenhouses, shadehouses, lath houses, and interiorscapes (i.e. atriums). Enstar AQ is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) that prevents target insects from maturing into adults. Once the adult insects come into contact with the active ingredient, S-Kinoprene (18.4%), they lay sterile eggs. Rate of use: For preventative application, use 16 fl. oz. per 100 gallons of water, applied to runoff every two weeks. For curative application (on an existing population of adult insects), make two applications 7 days apart of 32 fl. oz. per 100 gallons of water per 20,000 sq. ft., applied to runoff.
