Pyriproxyfen mimics a natural hormone that disrupts the growth and development of young insects and insect eggs, creating a very effective way for growers to protect their crops from invasive species.

Reemit™ 0.86 EC (comparable to Esteem® 0.86 EC) is formulated for California’s specialty market/citrus while Reemit™ 35 WSB (comparable to Esteem® 35 WSB) protects stone fruits, strawberries, apples and citrus.
