Q

What pesticides can I use for alfalfa weevil, and what are the best? Have Furadan and Lorsban been removed for this application

Answer(s)

A

Several Insecticides are labeled for control of Alfalfa Weevil. Furadan has been taken off the market for alfalfa.

Lorsban is still available and works well on Alfalfa Weevil if applied properly.

Mustang Max and Warrior also list Alfalfa Weevil on the label however many growers have not been happy with the control these products have provided on Alfalfa Weevil.

A new product Colbalt  that combines Lorsban with a chemical similar to Warrior is now available, early reports have been very favorable.
