This worked wonders in my orchid greenhouse.No damage to the orchids, or even to the delicate flowers. And no residual smell either. I had a problem with thrips, and everyone said they are hard to get rid of. But two Pylon TR bombs, 10 days apart, took care of the thrips, and all the other problems too. Has to be done on a preventative basis though. Also, the Pylon is cheaper here than anywhere else.

Pylon for gnat control
By Daniel in Encinitas CA on 02/10/2016
We used Pylon TR to control gnats is a sealed greenhouse with high humidity. The outside temperature was low enough that there was a lot of condensation on the inside of the roof panels. After the application we noticed a lot of spotting on the upper side of the foliage of the crop. It is very white and looks like paint was splattered from above. I believe the product combined with the water that was adhering to the plastic and as the plastic flexed in the windy conditions the concentrated product fell on the foliage below. Although the product killed the target pest and there was no phytotoxicity it made a big mess on the plants.

QCan you recommend a miticide for orchids that is compatible with Orthene for thrips?
I use Orthene on orchids to control thrips.
A Pylon TR is a great space mix partner with Attain TR or Tame/Orthene for controlling thrips and mites per label instructions in greenhouses on bedding plants, cut flowers, flower hanging baskets, foliage, potted flowering plants and ornamentals. If you are not treating in a greenhouse area, please let us know and we will find another product alternative that will best fit your needs. Thank you!
