LG Life Sciences says Lambdastar 9.7% CS is an EcoCap formulation that provides both quick kill and excellent residual control of perimeter pests
Englewood Cliffs, N.J. — Pest management professionals from Minnesota to Texas and the East Coast are preparing for the fall swarms of the brown marmorated stink bug. According to LG Life Sciences, August is the time when residual applications of Lambdastar 9.7% CS should begin and they should continue through October/November as these pests swarm.
LG Life Sciences’ Lambdastar 9.7% CS recently has had a label amendment approved in New York that specifically lists brown marmorated stink bugs, kudzu bugs, and bed bug adults and nymphs.
“LG Life Sciences has been tracking the introduction and rapid spread of the brown marmorated stink bug and kudzu bug into the U.S. from China,” said Patrick Callahan, national sales and marketing manager, LG Life Sciences. “The brown marmorated stink bug was accidentally introduced in Pennsylvania, and the kudzu bug right here in Georgia. UGA and Clemson have been watching this pest’s expansion very closely. Our experience shows that similar Lambdastar formulations that we sell for crop protection are good control agents vs. stink bug species. Both pest species spend most of the year out in the flowering trees, shrubs, ornamental plants, food plants or kudzu. In the spring when they emerge from overwintering and in the fall when they are seeking harborage, they can cover the sunny side of structures. We felt it important to get these new invasive pests listed on our label as soon as possible. In fact, LG Life Sciences may be the only company with both pests on their label. It is possible that stink bug ‘swarms’ may be the new termite swarm which will mean revitalized revenue for PMPs. LG is ready to help.”
Separately, LG Life Sciences says it has conducted laboratory trials on carpet tiles to show that Lambdastar 9.7% CS is also an effective insecticide for control of bed bugs. The firm says it conducted direct spray knockdown trials that resulted in rapid kill of bed bugs. On carpet tiles, the tests showed that dried residues on this surface would provide significant mortality of field collected bed bugs even after two to three months.
LG Life Sciences says Lambdastar 9.7% CS is an EcoCap formulation that provides both quick kill and exceptional residual control of perimeter pests including ants, scorpions, mosquitoes and crickets. Lambdastar 9.7% CS utilizes EcoCap technology, which is a vegetable oil process to encapsulate the lambdacyhalothrin.
