Entrust™

Insecticide

A Natural Choice for Fruit and Vegetable Growers to Control Insect Pests

Entrust™ insecticide provides the performance organic growers have come to trust. Entrust is active on several important insects, with a unique mode of action that is safe to beneficial insects making it a perfect fit in integrated pest management systems. It has an excellent environmental profile in terms of safety to humans, mammals, birds, aquatic organisms and groundwater. 
 

The active ingredient in Entrust is spinosad, the first of an entirely new and revolutionary class of insect control products called Naturalyte™. These insect control products are natural metabolites derived from living organisms. Spinosad is produced by fermentation of naturally occurring bacteria (Saccharpolyspora spinosa).
