ArmorTech introduces new insecticide

Guillotine is designed to cut off grubs and other surface-feeding insects.

| April 28, 2011

ArmorTech Guillotine, an insecticide providing preventive and curative control of both grubs and surface-feeding insects, is the latest addition to the United Turf Alliance selection of turf and ornamental protection products.

Fast-acting Guillotine is a water-dispersible granular formulation containing the active ingredient clothianidin. It controls white grubs and other insects for an extended length of time due to low water solubility, and its ability to remain in the turf/soil interface area longer than other neonicotinoid chemistries such as imidacloprid. Guillotine is effective against most grub species as well as ants, billbugs, annual bluegrass weevils, armyworms, cutworms and southern chinch bugs, including those resistant to synthetic pyrethroid insecticides.

Classified as a general use insecticide, Guillotine equips turfgrass managers with a new weapon against turf-damaging insects. It is also labeled for use on ornamentals, interior plantscapes and non-bearing fruit and nut trees in a landscape environment.
