Insecticide treatment of agricultural plants allows you to properly grow plants and get a full harvest from them. Let's consider the composition and action of the Proteus insecticide, the purpose and mechanism of action. What are the advantages of the drug, how to dose the drug and how to spend. What can the insecticide be combined with, how to store and what is allowed to be replaced.
Composition and preparative form of "Proteus"
This insecticide has a contact and systemic effect. The formula contains 2 active substances: thiacloprid in the amount of 100 g per 1 liter and deltamethrin in the amount of 10 g per 1 liter. The formulation in which the pesticide is produced is an oil dispersion. The liquid is poured into 5 liter plastic canisters.
What is the drug for and how does it work?
"Proteus" is intended for processing wheat, barley, rapeseed, peas, corn, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, beets and sugar from a number of common pests.

After spraying on the leaves, the liquid evaporates from the solution, and an oil film remains, which adheres securely to the leaves, is not washed off with water, the substance penetrates better into the tissues.
The active substance thiacloprid has a translaminar activity. It interacts with the receptors of the nerve fibers of pests, upsets the transmission of impulses along the nerve fibers. Deltamethrin also affects the central nervous system of insects, blocks sodium channels and disrupts the permeability of cell membranes. The death of insects begins several hours after treatment.
Benefits of using
The drug "Proteus" is characterized by the following advantages:
- reliable protection against leaf-gnawing and sucking pests;
- long period of protection;
- acts not only on larvae and adults, but also on insect eggs;
- can be used at low temperatures in spring, works well at temperatures in the range of 8-30 ˚С.
The protective effect from insecticide treatment lasts 14 days.
Solution consumption rate and instructions for use
For corn and beets, the application rate of "Proteus" is 0.5-1 liters per hectare, for other crops - 0.5-0.75 liters per hectare. Spraying is carried out on seedlings of wheat, rapeseed, carrots and beets, for other crops - during the growing season. The liquid consumption is different: for wheat, rapeseed and carrots - 100-200 liters per hectare, for beets - 200-300 liters per hectare and for other plants - 200-400 liters per hectare. Processing of peas and tomatoes is carried out once, other crops - 2 times. The waiting period for carrots and beets is 60 days, for all others - 20 days.
You can work on sprayed beds or fields 3 days after treatment.
Precautions for use
Proteus is slightly toxic to humans. Spraying should be done in clothing, protective equipment for eyes, hands and a respirator. If the solution comes into contact with the skin, wash it off with water. Avoid contact of the solution with mucous membranes; in case of contact, rinse with water. During the treatment with the insecticidal agent, do not drink, eat or smoke.
The Proteus preparation should not be used near water bodies and springs, rinse the solution residues into the water and rinse the working containers. The active compounds of the agent are toxic to fish and bees.
There are no restrictions in crop rotation for Proteus. Use on private households is prohibited; Do not spray from an aircraft. The insecticide is not toxic to plants and insects, provided it is used in the dosage recommended by the manufacturer. To prevent insect resistance to Proteus, it is recommended to alternate its use with other pesticides with a similar effect.
Compatibility with other pesticides
Proteus can be combined with many popular fungicides and insecticides, but before mixing it is necessary to pre-mix to identify the general chemical reaction. If the preparations do not react with each other, then they can be mixed in one container and used for spraying. When making tank mixes, it is necessary to avoid mixing the products without first diluting them with water.
How to store it correctly?
The product is stored for 4 years in factory canisters with closed lids. Storage conditions - dark, dry and cool room. Agricultural preparations and fertilizers can be stored in the same warehouse with an insecticide; food, feed, medicines and household products cannot be stored.
During long-term storage, the liquid can stratify, the precipitate does not fall out. The properties are preserved, but before preparing the solution, in this case, you must first shake the liquid. When spraying, oil droplets with the active substance will be evenly distributed in the solution. After the expiration of the shelf life, the insecticidal agent must be disposed of. The solution must be used within 1 day, then it gradually loses its effectiveness.
What can be replaced?
By thiacloprid, "Proteus" has analogues: "Aspid", "Biscay", "Calypso", "Pondus" and "Thea". For deltamethrin - "Atom", "Decis Profi", "Decis Expert", "K-Obiol". These preparations are useful for treating plants in agriculture. In private households, you can use the means "Decis Profi" and "FAS".
Proteus is an effective insecticidal agent that can be used on farm fields for spraying grain, root crops, potatoes, legumes, rapeseed, and tomatoes. The drug has a low rate of application and consumption, therefore it is economically profitable to use it on large areas. The solution adheres firmly to the leaves, is not washed off by irrigation water and rain, which is why it is not necessary to process the plantings again. Practically non-toxic to people, cultivated plants and subsequent crops, animals and soil.
