Environment-friendly highly effective biological larvicide
Foray is an economic and eco-friendly biological larvicide, used in forest pest control program. It contains the spores and unique crystalline proteins produced by a naturally occurring bacterium known as Bacillus thuringiensis kurstaki (Btk), strain ABTS-351.
Foray is not only a product; it is actually years of knowledge and experience. It was specifically developed for forestry and its efficiency and quality have been proved.
Foray is different from other forest products thanks to its special mode of action. Foray has a very specific mode of action and its active ingredient, Btk strain ABTS-351, acts when ingested by the targetted harmful lepidoptera larvae. When Btk is eaten by a susceptible larva, the toxin is released, the midgut wall is destroyed, the gut becomes paralyzed, and the larva stops feeding and die within 2-5 days.
Foray is the world’s most commonly used product against forest pests.
Foray is the most effective solution partner in strengthening the natural defense mechanism of forests while protecting the ecological balance.
Foray is harmless to human health, bees, birds, beneficial insects and to all living species except from the target lepidopteran.
Foray’s high field performance has been proven many times with scientific studies.
Foray’s active substance has been evaluated and listed by the legislation on Plant Protection Directive of the European Union.
Foray’s active substance has been evaluated and listed by the legislation on EU Biocide Directive of the European Union.
Foray is approved by EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
Foray is the most commonly used product for aerial control of forest pests and has been approved by the USA, Canada and EU countries.
