Naled Adulticide Insecticides

Naled insecticides are organophosphate insecticides for use undiluted or diluted in diesel oil to be applied for the control of adult mosquitoes, houseflies, gnats, midges, adult stable flies and certain other nuisance insects in residential areas, municipalities, woodlands, livestock pastures, feed lots, and pastures including dairy cattle.

Naled insecticides should be applied to control insects in residential areas, municipalities, tidal marshes, swamps, woodlands, agricultural areas (when applied in wide-area public pest control programs sponsored by governmental entities), livestock pastures, feed lots and pastures including dairy cattle. Applications should be made when insects are active.

Naled insecticides Key Benefits:

  • Naled is a very heavy material (14 lbs per gallon) which makes it unmatched when it comes to penetrating dense foliage and/or heavy canopies.
  • Naled is considered the standard for mosquito and other insect control by air.
  • The unique chemistry and weight allowing for accurate spray droplet deposition gives this product a great advantage over other adulticides used aerially.

Naled insecticides Mode of Action:

Naled is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor which is a chemical that inhibits the cholinesterase enzyme from breaking down acetylcholine. This allows over stimulation of the insect’s nervous system causing muscle twitching, convulsions, paralysis, and eventually death.
