Root Cleaner Soil Drench will stop and eliminate Thrips, Fungus Gnats, Root Aphids and minimize root rot and egg hatching by disrupting their feeding and reproduction.

Root Cleaner attacks fungus and algae and causes the pests to dehydrate and dry up. High moisture levels in soils, media and around pots enhances the development of fungus gnats and other pests. If untreated fungus gnats will feed on the beneficial material in the soil. If a fungal food source is not available, fungus gnats may feed directly on plants and inhibit the plant from rooting. This may also damage the root zone as they feed on seedlings and potted plants. On many healthy steamed plants, larvae may tunnel into stems and cause plants to wilt and die.

Larval feeding on roots may increase the development of root and stem rots such as Pythium. When this occurs, plants will be stunted with reduced growth. Also, pests droppings on plants may carry other diseases.Root Cleaner Soil Drench can be used on soil, coco and container gardens.

Mode of Action

Some nematodes are beneficial to plant growth, but others are detrimental. Root Cleaner will harm nematodes, which some attack plants and serve as carriers for plant viruses in crops.

For Prevention & Maintenance

Like any pest control maintenance schedule, how often you apply will depend on your local insect pressure. Insects like fungus gnats & thrips thrive in moist, warm, shady areas. In general, a 30-45 day routine treatment or after heavy rain is the best practice and usually the cheapest solution to pest management. As needed, protect your garden from pests and pathogens. Use as often as needed for a pest free environment 

Application rate:

Root Drench

Post Application Rinse (Important)
