Distance IGR

Distance IGR controls insects including whiteflies, scales, shore flies, and fungus gnats in indoor (greenhouse, lath and shadehouse, and interiorscapes) and outdoor ornamentals, including flowering and foliage crops, ground covers, shrubs and ornamental trees, non-bearing fruit and nut trees and indoor grown fruiting vegetables. Rates range from 6 to 12 oz. per 100 gallons of water, and repeat the treatment in 10 to 21 days, as needed. For fungus gnats, spray on drench infested surface areas.

Distance affects all pest insect life stages, including eggs, nymphs/larvae, pupae and adults. Distance does not control adults, but greatly reduces their production of viable eggs due to its strong transovarial activity. In whitefly, transovarial activity begins within one day after adults contact or ingest Distance residues. Distance is also ovicidal and inhibits metamorphosis of nymphs, larvae and pupae into adults. Since Distance is an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR), activity depends on the insect’s development. Therefore, evidence of activity may be slower than with typical contact insecticides, especially when large numbers of late instars are present at time of application.

Distance also has strong translaminar activity on a variety of ornamental plants, including poinsettia, hibiscus, gerbera daisy and chrysanthemums. Distance residues applied to the upper leaf surface will rapidly penetrate the leaf cuticle, and can subsequently be ingested by immature and adult insects feeding on the lower leaf surface (eg. whitefly). Therefore, even in cases where it is difficult to achieve thorough underleaf spray coverage, Distance can still provide highly effective control.

Distance is intended for use in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) or Integrated Resistance Management (IRM) programs. Distance will not control adult insects, and it is recommended to be used in combination and/or rotation with other IPM or IRM materials. Contact your local state extension service for details.

    By Allan in L.A., California on 11/20/2015

    Terrific product! Excellent on white fly and armored scale. I use it on hard to control insects and I get very good results. It's nice to have a good tool in this regulatory environment.

QWhy is Pivot so much cheaper than Distance IGR?
I bought the standard size Pivot 10% while Distance is only 11...% I am glad I got Precor= (Meteor, and Gentrol). I had no luck with this chemical in Distance and Pivot. It was as if it was feeding the gnats and thrips steroids. A super size ulv fog of tempo sc+15%pbo killed them and nearly me (went through my respirator ). I learned with Precor and Gentrol fleas , gnats etc., are everywhere after you fog. It is a nightmare. It must be understood to everyone listen you must get a bad to the bone spray for post fog ( IGR'S wake up fleas and gnats (most are late to wake)the next day millions will be out tiny and biting fleas especially. Get Phantom; Pyrthrins PBO ; onslaught +trijet foger ULV and massacre them. This is how IGR'S work , they wake up , mess up millions baby tiny fleas ; gnats ( the web leaving no-see-um (AAHHHH:/ mean sobs) which bite out of instinct. I suggest deet for you , really. NEEM fogs great end of nightmare throw it in the tank-the whole quart! Clean everything , floors with rags on hands and knees even the ceilings after vacuuming. Last: 16 oz 85% pine oil ;16 oz 85% mint oil ; 6 oz 100 Anise oil plus 3 oz tempo ; 6 oz 80%pbo PH to a 5.5 with white vinegar. Get a gas mask ; full suit take a vacation next: add 1 quart ammonia and 2oz bleach and empty the full tri-jet commmander once per 1000 ft. under house too if peer and beam. 100 lbs bifinthrin granules generic ; around house turn on sprinklers a while. Go gnats cedar oil for perimeter 3x a week. All this nastiness is your neighbors who love bugs and have crabs probably. After Jamaica you come home to just you and your family. Stay clean oh so clean...Well , why does an inferior IGR like Distance cost so much? How do I apply for the 100 hours of work for a liscence with you guys? I know most everything with pest control. The above is an extreme I did at my own home I know not to do that anywhere else...please forgive me . I want to start a non-for-profit to help low income families who have bug infestations and can't afford even diy. Leishmaniasis is breaking out fast and any biting insect can pass it not just a sand fly. The government is stockpiling medicines which treat it. Bigger more aggressive sandfllies brought back in sand from two wars. Justin

APivot is a generic product manufactured by a company that specializes in making generic products. You should also note that Distance is a 32 oz bottle (946 ml) and Pivot is a 110 ml (3.7 fl oz) bottle so when you break down the price by ml the differnce is very small.

QWhy don't you sell smaller quantities of Distance?
there's a lot of us hobby greenhouse orchid growers and I'd like to try a smaller quantity of Distance. Why don't you break it down to a smaller quantity?

AWe apologize but we do not make the Distance IGR we only sell it. We are unaware of any size smaller than the 32oz but we would be happy to check for you to see if one smaller is available for purchase. We can not legally break the product down and sell it in anything smaller than how the EPA says it can be produced by the manufacturer.

QCan I use Distance IGR to treat fleas in my lawn?


Distance IGR†is not labeled for fleas or to treat your lawn.† We would recommend our†Outdoor Flea and Tick Kit so that you will have everything you need to completely eradicate a flea infestation.† Please take a moment to look over our Flea Control Guide for more information on treating and preventing this pest.†

QIs this product available in a smaller bottle, such as 5 oz.?
For the hobby greenhouse, a quart is too great a quantity. This product got a great recommendation from a commercial greenhouse operator who says it is much better than Enstar products.

AWe apologize Distance IGR does not come in smaller quantities. Pivot IGR contains the same active ingredient at 10% . Please refer to the product label to see if this product fits your specific needs.
