Overture 35 WP (active ingredient pyridalyl) by Valent Company can be used to target two pests in greenhouses – thrips and caterpillars. Overture was labeled for use in greenhouses in 2008. This material works by contact action and has translaminar properties. It is applied as a foliar spray. The label rate for thrips is 8 oz per 100 gallons and it has a 12 hour Re-entry Interval (REI). One thing we have noticed with the product is that control of thrips is often not seen for 7 to 14 days after treatment. Overture should be considered most effective when used as a preventative treatment or as a rotation product. Overture should be a good product to use in rotation with Conserve, Pylon and other thrips insecticides
