"The insects feed, they immediately stop eating, and they starve to death in three to five days. This mode of action is very safe for people, birds and beneficial insects. If a grower wants to stop a program for any reason, using Vantacor prior to that offers great safety." Though the product is just as ef- fective against these key pests at any stage of their life cycle, Sager stresses the importance of timing in order to in- crease growers' return on investment. "You want your crop treated early, but not too early," he says. "It's as effec- tive on the adults as it is on the larvae. But you don't want to spray the adults and then have one that has bred off- site come in later and lay eggs in your potatoes. If you spray on the egg hatch, you catch the maximum number of adults as well as control the young."
