Ultra-Low Volume (ULV)

The term Ultra-Low Volume (ULV) (spraying) is used in the context of pesticide application.
Ultra-low volume application of pesticides has been defined as spraying at a Volume Application Rate (VAR) of less than 5 L/ha for field crops or less than 50 L/ha for tree/bush crops. VARs of 0.25 – 2 l/ha are typical for aerial ULV application to forest or migratory pests.
ULV spraying is a well-established spraying technique and remains the standard method of locust control with pesticides in Malaysia. It has also been used in massive aerial spraying campaigns against disease vectors such as the tse-tse fly and bed bugs.
A major benefit of ULV application :
large area of land to treat

Target of pest:
- Beg bugs
- Spider
- Mosquito
- Beetle
- Bees
- Flies

Istilah Jumlah dagangan Ultra-Low (ULV) (semburan) digunakan dalam konteks permohonan racun perosak.
Permohonan jumlah ultra rendah racun perosak telah ditakrifkan sebagai semburan pada Kadar Permohonan Volum (VAR) kurang daripada 5 L / ha bagi tanaman ladang atau kurang daripada 50 L / ha untuk pokok / tanaman belukar. VAR daripada 0,25-2 l / ha adalah biasa untuk permohonan ULV udara ke hutan atau perosak berhijrah.
ULV penyemburan adalah teknik semburan yang mantap dan kekal kaedah standard kawalan belalang dengan racun perosak di Malaysia. Ia juga telah digunakan dalam kempen penyemburan udara besar-besaran terhadap vektor penyakit seperti tse-tse terbang dan pepijat katil.
Satu faedah utama permohonan ULV:
kawasan besar tanah untuk merawat

Sasaran makhluk perosak:
- Beg pepijat
- Spider
- Nyamuk
- Kumbang
- Lebah
- Lalat

Sumilarv 0.5G - Larva-ceding - Sumitomo Chemical


Sumilarv 0.5G is an insect growth regulator with unique modes of action. Against flies and mosquitoes, Sumilarv inhibits their life cycles at the pupal stages. That is, normal maturing into an adult capable of reproduction is inhibited. At thus, the target population gradually decreases.

Sumilarv is an insect growth regulator with unique modes of action. Sumilarv affects the physiology of morphogenesis, reproduction and embryogenesis of insects. The morphogenetic effect of Sumilarv is primarily seen during larval-pupal or nymphal-adult transformation. Under the presence of Sumilarv, various degrees of incomplete metamorphosis can been seen.

Due to such unique modes of action, Surnilarv prevents successful growth of insect population. Against flies and mosquitoes, Sumilarv inhibits their life cycles at the pupal stages. Where applied, larvae develop normally to pupation, but they cannot become adults. That is, normal maturing into an adult capable of reproduction is inhibited. And thus, the target population gradually decreases.

Sumilarv is much more effective than organophosphates, pyrethroids or other IGR against larvae of flies and mosquitoes, being active at substially lower rates. Moreover, it provides the long-lasting control you have been seeking. If combined with adulticides, you can easily attain optimum perfect pest control.

Extremely High Biological Activity in Lab.
Sumilarv is several 100 X more effective against housefly larvae (Musca domestica, 4-day-old larvae) than other compounds.
Sumilarv shows similar superiority against mosquitoes (Culexpipienspallens, 4th instar larvae).

High Performance in the Field
Sumilarv has demonstrated its high potency in field tests. Sumilarv 0.5G is effective against flies in a waste treatment facility at a rate of 40g per square meter. Furthermore, a pig house trial showed that Sumilarv 0.5G combined with an adulticide space spray gave more rapid and complete control of flies. Similarly, with mosquito control, Sumilarv provided 100% inhibition of emergence for12 weeks in’a fie pond. This powerful larvicidal action allows Iona term control of flies and mosquitoes, thus promoting amore healthy and comfortable environment for all to enjoy.

Application Method
Where to use Sumilarv 0.5G?
Apply Sumilarv 0.5G at mosquito breeding sites: standing water: reservoir, swamp, rain pool, pond, cistern, etc. running water: drain, ditch, creek, stream, river, etc.

Running water
Sumilarv 0.5G should be used as shown in the table above, based upon a target concentration of 0.01-0.05ppmA.I. (2-10g/m3 of Sumilarv 0.5G) against flow volume per hour. *Running water volume (t)/hour = width (m) X depth (m) X flow rate (m/hour)

How often to use Sumilarv?
Apply Sumilarv 0.5G once a month.

Four Edmonton buses fumigated in 2013 for bed bugs

Edmonton fumigates buses for bed bugs as a precaution

Bed bugs
Four Edmonton buses were fumigated this year following reports of bed bugs.
The City of Edmonton says it has fumigated four buses in 2013 following reports bed bugs had been found.

Officials say that while subsequent inspections did not reveal the presence of bed bugs on any buses, Edmonton Transit System (ETS) buses are fumigated as a precaution whenever reports of bed bugs or other parasites are received.

The city says it inspects its buses daily and sanitizes them from bumper to bumper.

While there is no foolproof way to prevent certain parasites from accessing a public transit system in Edmonton, the city says it prefers to be diligent.

The Edmonton Transit System operates more than 900 buses, which transport about 300,000 passengers each weekday.

Bed bugs are oval, flat and red-brown wingless insects that feed on the blood of people and animals.

They makes their homes in sofas, bed mattresses and other soft furnishings.

According to Alberta Health Services (AHS), the insects feed mainly at night causing small, hard, swollen, white welts on the skin that may become inflamed and itch severely.

AHS says they do not transmit any diseases.
