Crop Protection

DEADZONE™ (CELITE® 610) MECHANICAL INSECTICIDE (100% natural diatomite) is designed to provide a physical mode of action against insect pests and mites.

Today, mankind relies almost exclusively on pesticides to protect food and industrial crops from insect pests and mites, driving natural selection towards resistance.

Deadzone™ (Celite® 610) is a mechanical insecticide that provides a physical, non-chemical mode of action. Applied as a wettable powder using standard crop protection equipment, it adheres to the outer layer of the plant. Contact with an insect pest or mite results in the static transfer of a few particles of Deadzone™ (Celite® 610), which absorb the protective lipid layer necessary for their survival. As a result, the insect will dehydrate. Insect pests and mites will not become immune to Deadzone’s mode of action. Deadzone™ (Celite® 610) is a powerful complimentary active to any integrated pest management program.
