Insecticide Control

Various insecticides can be used to control small grasshoppers and armyworms in pastures and hay meadows including insect growth regulators like diflubenzuron. When selecting which product(s) to use it is important to consider efficacy, cost, potential for residual activity, grazing or restrictions, and the potential to help control other species like horn flies.

In addition to controlling small armyworms and grasshoppers, Dimilin 2L also has a label claim for suppression of horn fly emergence from cattle manure patties for 2 weeks or longer. Checking product labels can help select products that provide added benefits at no additional cost.
