is better Prestige or Taboo Instructions for use of the drug Taboo
The drug is recommended to be used in two ways. The first method is the treatment of seed potatoes from the Colorado potato beetle. The second method is tillage at planting from a wireworm. That and another method proved to be effective in compliance with the instructions.
Preparation of the working solution for the treatment of tubers
Seed potatoes need to be scattered in a single layer on a tarpaulin or plastic wrap. The thinner the layer of root crops, the easier it is to spray them evenly.
Prepare a working solution. To do this, take a small( not food) packaging. Pour into it 10 ml of the drug , dilute it with a small amount of water.
After dissolving the suspension in water, pour the resulting solution into the sprayer tank, add 1.4 liters of water .Stir the working fluid several times before use.
Processing of tubers should be carried out on the day of preparation of the working solution .Store an aqueous solution of the suspension can not. Spray seed potatoes evenly, occasionally turning it over.
Before planting, it should dry out. The tool forms on the peel a thin, durable film. When putting potatoes in the hole, the film is not sprinkled. The wells must immediately fall asleep ground.
According to gardeners, the resulting volume( 1.4 l) of the solution should be enough for for 125 tubers. Diluted disinfectant should be used throughout the day. It can not be stored. To prepare a smaller volume of the disinfectant, you can use the cap from the bottle as a measure. It contains 2.5 ml of suspension.
Tillage solution during planting
Pre-plant tillage is carried out on a field contaminated with wireworms. Prepare a solution of another concentration. For 10 liters of water you need 4 ml of the drug. This volume is enough for processing 1 weave when planting potatoes in the wells or furrows.
One 10 ml vial is sufficient to prepare 25 liters of the working solution, which can be treated with 2.5 weaves of potato field.

Description of the drug
Taboo is a modern preparation, it contains the active substance , imidacloprid ( synthetic neonicotinoid) and a number of excipients that contribute to high-quality processing of seed material.
When processing seed potatoes with , a strong coating is formed in the form of a thin film , which does not crumble after drying and is colored red.
Indication helps to control the volume of treated planting material. Raw tubers have a natural color, treated - red.
Provide a comfortable and high-quality processing of planting material substances that are part of the emulsion:
- Signal dye.

Principle of action
Imidacloprid active substance - poison for the Colorado potato beetle and wireworm. It is a synthetic analogue of natural preparations made on the basis of tobacco.
wireworm. To reduce the population of the Colorado potato beetle, is enough to pre-sow the seed. This significantly reduces the time to fight pest.
How long to wait for the impact and protection period of the potato

How it helps from the Colorado potato beetle and the wireworm
The Colorado beetles and their larvae feed on the young leaves and shoots of .Imidacloprid goes into their stomachs along with the sap of the plant. Watch poisoning effect can be after a day. The insects nervous system is blocked, they die.
The treatment of holes and tubers during planting protects the potato bushes from the larvae of the clicked beetle( wireworm).The insecticide from planting to harvesting discourages these larvae from young potato tubers.
Climate and weather conditions do not affect the effect of the drug. It is proved in practice. Taboos were tested against wireworms in different regions and everywhere it proved to be effective.
Tests were conducted in the fields:
- Kaliningrad region.
- In the suburbs.
