Figure 1. Data extracted from R-4 Thrips Efficacy Trial on Gerber Daisy, M. Parella. No data was collected for Conserve® at 14 DAT. All products were applied as a foliar spray on 0 and 14 DAT (days after treatment). Hachi-Hachi SC showed excellent control of western flower thrips up to 35 days after the final application. Lack of residual control beyond 35 DAT would not be expected with a contact insecticide.

Figure 2. Data extracted from IR-4 Thrips Efficacy Trial on Marigold, Gilrein and Siracusano. All products were applied as a foliar spray on 0, 11 and 25 DAT (days after treatment). Only immature thrips were rated on 28 DAT. Hachi-Hachi SC showed excellent control of western flower thrips (comparable to Conserve) throughout the study.

Figure 4. Data extracted from Green Peach Aphid Trial on Yellow Sage, R. Cloyd. A single application of Hachi-Hachi was applied as a foliar spray at 0 DAT. Both rates of Hachi-Hachi SC showed 99% control of Green Peach Aphid 14 DAT. Means not followed by a common letter are significantly different (P≤0.05) as determined by a Fisher's protected least significant difference (LSD) test.

Benefits of Hachi-Hachi SC

  • Much needed additional tool to battle troublesome pests
  • Strengthens an IPM program to reduce the risk of resistance development
  • Significantly enhanced plant safety and reduced odor
  • One spray control eggs, immatures and adults

For best results, begin applications at the first sign of pressure when pests are immature or at the most susceptible stage and populations are building. For repeat applications, allow at least 10 days between applications.

Hachi-Hachi SC is recommended for use in a programmed rotation with other insecticides with different modes of action. Hachi-Hachi SC should not be applied more than twice during a cropping cycle. Additionally, rates lower than those listed on the table should not be applied. 

Hachi-Hachi SC Crop Tolerance

Hachi-Hachi SC has been tested on a wide variety of common greenhouse crops with no phytotoxic effects. SePRO continues to test additional species for crop sensitivity in an effort to develop a broad, expansive list of tolerant ornamental plants. To minimize plant sensitive, utilize small droplet producing applicators, avoid pooling of spray solution on the plant and make applications during the cooler part of the day when the plants are under less stress. In all cases, the user should test Hachi-Hachi SC on a small sample of the plants to be treated to ensure satisfaction. Do not apply Hachi-Hachi SC to impatiens, New Guinea impatiens, baby's breath (gypsophilia), phlox, salvia or poinsettias. 

    ctive Ingredient: Hachi-Hachi SC contains the active ingredient, tolfenpyrad, which is classified by IRAC in Group 21A mitrochondrial electron transport inhibitors.  Hachi-Hachi SC inhibits the electron transfer system of energy metabolism in the mitochondria of susceptible insects.  Tolfenpyrad is relatively new chemistry to the US ornamental market, but it is used extensively in many other countries.

    Formulation: Hachi-Hachi SC is a much improved formulation compared to the discontinued petroleum-based emulsifiable concentrate (EC) formulation.  Hachi-Hachi SC is a suspension concentrate (SC) containing 1.31 lbs of tolfenpyrad per gallon.  The SC formulation is easy to handle, mix, and apply.  Hachi-Hachi SC can be mixed with other registered pesticides.  For specific directions on tank mixing with different formulation types, refer to the Hachi-Hachi SC label.

    Active ingredient:  tolfenpyrad
