Sequoia is an insecticide containing 120g/litre sulfoxaflor. Sulfoxaflor is a member of the Sulfoximines
branch of chemistry discovered by Dow Agrosciences and
developed globally for pest control in a range of crops.
Sequoia acts on insects nervous systems causing tremors
paralysis and death exhibiting complex and unique
interactions with the target pest’s nicotinic acetylcholine
receptors. Sequoia is both systemic and translaminar,
moving to new growth via the plant’s xylem and through leaf
tissue after application.
Sequoia is approved for the control of aphids and whitefly in
a range of crops under permanent protection full enclosure.

Sequoia acts on insect’s nervous
system causing tremors, paralysis
Sulfoxaflor interacts with nicotinic
acetylcholine receptors, mimicking
acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is the
major excitatory neurotransmitter in
an insect’s central nervous system.
Sulfoxaflor’s interaction causes
hyperexcitation giving good control
of key pests.
Due to this unique mode of action Sequoia controls pyrethroid,
carbamate, organophosphate and
neonicotinoid resistant aphids.
Sequoia has systemic and
translaminar activity and works
via both contact and ingestion.
Sequoia has a rapid knock
down delivering excellent
control within hours.
Sequoia is labelled for the control of aphids
and whitefly. The UK label requires a higher
rate for control of whitefly.
Worldwide field efficacy trials have revealed
control of a wide range of sap feeding insects
including: psyllids, scale insects, several
species of thrips, planthoppers leafhoppers,
fleahopper, stink bugs, capsids, mealybugs,
Sequoia will not control lepidopteran
(caterpillars) and coleopteran pests (beetles).
