Velgro controls thrips including their eggs and larvae.
Velgro contains of potassium salt (organic fatty acid) and Ryania (extracted from the rhizome of this plant).
Velgro is very effective against the eggs and larvae of thrips at an early stage because it affects the insects' stomach, especially in the larval stage. The thrips will become sterile within a few hours, and will then no longer lay eggs.
Velgro has an odour and flavour that are unattractive to thrips, causing them to avoid the treated plants.
