Hort Innovation has announced a new APVMA chemical permit for the control of two significant insect pests of olives, olive lace bug (OLB) and black scale.

Trivor Insecticide is a unique insecticide combination of acetamiprid (Group 4A – Neonicotinoid) and pyriproxyfen (Group 7C – Insect Growth Regulator) which provides rapid and extended control or suppression of many key pests of horticultural crops.

Permit details:

PER 89943 Trivor Insecticide (acetamiprid + pyriproxyfen), new permit to 31 January 2024, is for the control of olive lace bug (OLB) and scale insects in olive groves.

Note: this is an interim permit, as the registrant  ADAMA will be seeking a label registration in the future for the crops covered under this permit as part of the AgVet Grant funded project (ST16006).
