Spinosad

                      
  • Spinosad is an insecticide where the active ingredient is derived from a naturally occurring soil dwelling bacterium called  Saccharopolyspora spinosa. The bacteria produce compounds (metabolites) while in a fermentation broth which can be formulated into an insecticide that combines the efficacy of a synthetic insecticide with the benefits of a biological pest control organism.
  • Spinosad DT is a mixture of spinosyn A and spinosyn D. It is used for mosquito control in potable water in containers. 
  • Spinosad DT 7.48% is specified for use as a vector control agent in drinking-water sources.
  • Spinetoram, a green chemical synthesis which retains the favorable environmental benefits of spinosad, provides an effective broad spectrum alternative to organophosphate pesticides for fruits and vegetables.
