Overture 35 WP Insecticide is a wettable powder insecticide containing 35 percent active ingredient pyridalyl for enclosed greenhouse use. Overture 35 WP Insecticide provides control of thrips (including Western flower thrips) and the larvae of various lepidopteran insect pests infesting greenhouse grown ornamentals, including flowering and foliage crops, ground covers, shrubs and ornamental trees, and non-bearing fruit and nut trees grown indoors.

Overture WP Insecticide controls insects by both contact and ingestion activity, although contact activity is dominant and faster than ingested activity. Reapplication of Overture 35 WP Insecticide to maintain insect control should be repeated only as directed.

Overture 35 WP Insecticide also has strong translaminar activity on a variety of plants, including poinsettia, hibiscus, gerbera daisy and chrysanthemums. Overture insecticide applied to upper leaf surface will rapidly penetrate the leaf cuticle, and can subsequently be ingested by immature and adult insects feeding on the lower leaf surface. Therefore, even in cases where it is difficult to achieve through under-leaf spray coverage, Overture 35 WP Insecticide can still provide highly effective control.
