Application of processed kaolin particle film repels insects without lethal effects; hence side effects on beneficial arthropods are low. Processed kaolin may be an alternative to broad-spectrum insecticides used against European pear sucker, Cacopsylla pyri (L.), in organic and conventional pear production.
Trials showed that the processed kaolin showed a very high efficacy, and the population of C. pyri was kept under a damaging level over the whole season. In conclusion, kaolin shows promise as an alternative control for C. pyri in organic and orchards of Integreted Pest Management.
