Recently, various horticulture chemicals have been used increasingly for pest control, but they are not always suitable, especially for the treatment of indoor plants. As an alternative means, special biological substances are used, for example, fitoverm for indoor plants is just perfect. This drug is an insectic acaricide and is used to treat plants that grow not only in open but also in closed ground.
Before you start using this tool, you should carefully read the instructions, which indicate that the product is based on the waste products of soil microorganisms.

With it, you can get rid of various diseases and pests, including aphids, moths, etc. Use this tool should be strictly following the instructions, especially for the treatment of indoor plants without serious consequences.
For processing indoor flowers you must use a spray. Pests no longer eat the plant after 8 hours, after spraying, and their complete destruction will occur approximately after several days. In a week the maximum result will be noticeable, and the duration of the phytoverm’s action lasts about 3 weeks. Spraying the plants from the sprayer slightly reduces the effect of the drug.
Fitoverm: instructions for use
It is recommended to use this tool as soon as the first symptoms of pests begin to appear. However, one should not expect that the result will be obtained instantly, since for several hours more the pests continue to feed on the flower, and in a few days they will die completely.
Even in spite of the fact that the drug is a natural one, the use of the phytoverm should be carried out strictly according to the instructions and the means should be diluted immediately before its use. Among the advantages of this tool is its high efficiency, as well as the fact that it is completely safe for human health and pets. However, fitoderm refers to hazardous drugs, so instructions for its use should be carefully studied.
Using the drug you need to follow the following rules:
- can not be diluted in the dishes in which food is prepared;
- as the processing of plants will be completed, you need to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water;
- The container used to dilute the drug must be discarded or washed well.
To dilute the drug for spraying, you need to take a phyto vial ampoule and dilute with water (indicated in the instructions). In this solution, leaves of domestic plants are thoroughly moistened. It is necessary to perform 4 treatments, with a short break between each (approximately 7-9 days).
Given the type of plant pests, the ampoule should be diluted in the following proportions:
- thrips - 500 ml of water 1 ampoule;
- Aphids - 600 ml of water 1 ampoule;
- spider mite - 2500 ml of water 1 ampoule.
How to apply for orchids?
Orchids very often suffer from various types of pests, and so that the plant does not die, it is recommended to use this drug to combat them. Fitoverm is diluted in the ratio of 500 ml of water 1 ampoule of the product. For complete destruction of pests will need to carry out several treatments, as the larvae may have resistance to the drug.
To achieve maximum results, not only orchid leaves are processed, but also the soil in the pot.
Fitoverm for processing violets
If there is a need to carry out the treatment of violets, the drug should be made in the ratio - to 1 liter of water 1 ampoule of the product. Experienced gardeners are advised to add literally a couple of droplets of simple animal shampoo that contains permethrin to the finished product.
For complete destruction of pests, indoor plants are processed 4 times, with a 3-day break between each procedure. This plant treatment scheme was developed taking into account the fact that the impact is directly on adults, but does not affect the larvae and eggs, from which new pests will hatch.
Regardless of what kind of indoor plant will be handled by the flyerm, it is necessary to carefully spray or wipe all the leaves, both at the top and bottom. This procedure should be carried out in a room where the temperature is at least +20 degrees. If the procedure is carried out directly during the flowering period, the flowers should also be processed.
