SNS 209TM provides a barrier for plants to protect them against damaging insects. This barrier is harmless to the plant but distasteful to mites and other insects. SNS 209 Systemic Insect Control is made up of 100% pure botanical extracts that are highly water-soluble. The botanical extracts are all food-grade GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) materials. SNS 209 Systemic Insect Control is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticide exempted under FIFRA section 25(b).
How It Works
Spider mites, whiteflies, nematodes, scale and other insects destroy plant cells by sucking out their fluids or chewing up the cell walls. SNS 209TM‘s unique formula works by allowing the plant to take up a small amount of rosemeric acid from the rosemary plant. As the plant distributes the rosemeric acid throughout its cell walls, a barrier is soon constructed. When an insect starts to suck or chew on the plant it comes in contact with the rosemeric acid and causes the insect to stop eating and move on.
