Hexamite 1AQ Select™ controls mites through activity on eggs and immature stages through either direct contact with the spray or from contact with treated plant surfaces. Its ovicidal activity controls newly deposited mite eggs and eggs that are laid after application. Also highly effective in controlling immature motile stages of target mite species that are sprayed or move onto treated surfaces. Adult mites are not directly affected. The degree and duration of control is dependent on the rate used, growth stage of the mite, species of mite, and climatic conditions under which the material is applied.
