Fitoverm belongs to the medium level of danger. This implies that when working with it, protect exposed skin and especially mucous membranes.
They cover their heads with a scarf, put on clothes with long trousers and sleeves, hide their faces under a mask and glasses. In all manipulations with the drug always use tight waterproof gloves.
Processing is best done on an open balcony or in a well-ventilated room.
During spraying the solution is forbidden to eat, water, smoke. Signs of Fitoverm poisoning are nausea and vomiting. If the solution accidentally enters the body, immediately drink plenty of water with activated charcoal and empty the stomach.
The remainder of the solution is poured under the plants or in the toilet.
An unopened preparation is kept in a dark and dry place, where it is inaccessible to children and animals. Shelf life is 2 years.
The drug is compatible with bioregulators ( Epin Extra, Zircon ), organophosphorus insecticides, and pyrethroids. It can not be combined with alkaline products and chemical pesticides.
A universal rule applies here: if you mix two drugs and observe precipitation, it means that they do not mix well with each other.
Cost and analogs
The price of the Fitoverma 2 milliliter ampoule on Ozone is 50 rubles, and a package of 50 milliliters costs 242 rubles. Therefore, it is obvious that it is more profitable to purchase a larger package.
The analogs of Fitoverm include Akarin, Haupsin, Agravertin.
Fitoverm saves home plants from the most common pests. The drug has many advantages – zero phytotoxicity, high efficiency, comparative safety for legal residents of an apartment or house.
But in order to completely exterminate pests, multiple treatments are needed. And although my review of the drug is generally positive, last year he was not able to cope with aphids on pepper seedlings.
But, most likely, it happened because I missed the fourth final spraying.
