DES-X® is an insecticide/miticide soap concentrate that eradicates pests through nonspecific direct contact, breaking down the cuticle and penetrating the body of the insect and/or mite. It is an effective choice for resistance management, and has no residual effects after the spray application dries. Des-X is compatible with other control agents, beneficial insects, and beneficial predatory mites.
