The magic formula of Zeolite: Spray once, confuse for weeks
With the zeolite spray application, the pioneering idea of pheromone-based pest control is now also feasible in arable farming. The basis is provided by the natural mineral of the same name and its special suitability as a carrier material to bind certain liquid substances and release them continuously over a longer period of time. As a result, every pheromone from the pherolit® line can now also be sprayed easily and quickly in agriculture – and subsequently forms a long-lasting and effectively confusing cloud of scent to prevent the spread of pests.
Spray pheromones instead of using attractant dispensers.
- The natural volcanic mineral has a special cage structure with a huge inner surface
- In the process patented by Lithos Crop Protect, pherolit® is applied to the substrate and released again via the unique “slow-release” function.
- The carrier material enables the release of the active ingredient to be specifically controlled!
- Zeolite is already used in many places as a proven plant and soil additive and therefore does not form any harmful residues, but actually has a positive effect.
- The zeolite powder prepared in a special grinding process can be sprayed thanks to its particle size! This can be achieved with normal field sprayers, stilt tractors, airplanes or drones.
