Silencer contains the same active ingredient as Matador® insecticide, and delivers the same insect control.

Silencer is in the pyrethroid family and provides contact and residual control at low application rates. It can be tank-mixed with Horizon® or Achieve® herbicides, or Tilt® propiconazole fungicide. More tank-mix options will be added as part of MANA’s research and development program.

Insects on the Silencer label include grasshoppers, diamondback moth larvae, bertha armyworms, lygus bugs, soybean aphids, Colorado potato beetles, European corn borers, and flea beetles, among others.
