Nexter SC also controls listed mites as a post-harvest application on raspberries and controls pear psylla in pears. The use of Nexter SC on peaches and nectarines is registered only in Ontario. Nexter SC works primarily through contact action, so good spray coverage is necessary. Nexter SC provides excellent knockdown and residual control.
