The SePRO Akari 5SC Miticide Insecticide provides excellent control of spider mites on greenhouse ornamental floral and foliage. It offers fast knockdown against all developmental stages of mites, with main activity on larvae, nymphs and adults. Prior to knockdown and death, mites treated with Akari become paralyzed on the leaf or while spinning down from the plant using their webbing. This property provides stop-feeding activity which is a big advantage for minimizing crop damage. Other than that, paralyzing action also prevents egg-laying. A good evaluation of performance can generally be made 4 to 7 days after treatment. Akari 5SC is relatively gentle to natural enemies and beneficial insects. When applied at labeled rates, the product provides 21 to 28 days of residual control. Akari 5SC should be used only in a rotational miticides program and not in successive applications in the same greenhouse. Akari 2SC is not registered for use in all states. Check to be sure if a specific use pattern is approved in your area before use. Contact your local state agency for more information.

Akari 5SC Indoor Greenhouse and Outdoor Use on Ornamental Crops
Akari 5SC is a contact miticide and insecticide used for the control of spider mites and other mite pests in greenhouse cucumbers and tomatoes, all ornamental crops including flowering and foliage crops, nursery crops, nonbearing fruit trees and vines, and Christmas trees. This should be used in a program with other products to provide season long protection. Miticides must be rotated with alternate products for resistance management. Do not use products with the same mode of action (METI-2 inhibitor/IRAC Group 21A) in consecutive applications. Apply as a spray using sufficient water volume to obtain thorough coverage of plants. Under severe mite conditions, use the maximum rates and the shorter spray interval as specified on the label. Dense foliage or excessive growth will often prevent adequate coverage; adjust spray volumes accordingly.

QCan it be used indoors to treat for bird mite infestation?
Is this product safe and effective for indoor bird mite infestations?
ASePro Akari 5Sc Miticide/Insecticide is only labeled to be used in and on greenhouse and nursery ornamnetals, greenhouse cucumbers, greenhouse tomatoes, nonbearing fruit trees and vines, Christmas trees, and interior ornamental plantings and plantscapes. It is not labeled for bird mites.
We would recommend using a product like EcoVia EC. It is labeled for mites and can be used indoors as well. It is made with botanical oils. You will use 1-2 oz. per gallon of water. Thoroughly spray all cracks and crevices where insects may hide or enter the building. Some of these areas include baseboards, floorboards, corners, around water and utility pipes, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, behind and beneath equipment and appliances, around floor drains, window and door frames and other possible pest harborage sites. Do not apply directly to house plants. Cover/avoid any pools or aquaria prior to spraying.
