Insects (Ready to use)

Yates Confidor Plant Insecticide Aerosol

Controls aphids, mealy bugs, scale, thrips, whitefly and other sucking insects on ornamentals, roses and vegetables. Confidor belongs to a new chemical group, so it is excellent to use in a spray program with other insecticides, as it controls pests resistant to older formulations.


  • Systemic action -absorbed through the foliage and moves throughout the plant to control insect pests – works from the inside out.
  • Good for spot treatment of pests.
  • Ideal for indoor plants.
  • Aerosol can be inverted (turned upside down) to treat under leaves and in awkward spaces.
  • CFC free – safe to ozone layer.
  • Easy to use aerosol formulation, no mixing required and easy to spray underneath plant foliage.
