Formulated with FMC bifenthrin, the proven active ingredient found in Talstar, ® it's no surprise that Triple Crown delivers enduring residual protection. As you can see from the charts below, Triple Crown provides long-lasting control of southern chinch bugs, keeps mole cricket turf damage to low levels even 42 days after treatment and delivers strong residual control of masked chafer grubs at 98 days after treatment. Multiple Forms of Action Take this study for example. As this data shows, treatment with Triple Crown keeps annual bluegrass weevil larval densities below the spring damage threshold (30 larvae per square foot or less). Triple Crown is the singular solution that combines fast knockdown, lasting residual and broad spectrum pest control with multiple modes of action. By eliminating the need to tank mix multiple products to control above- and below-ground pests, Triple Crown helps save time, money and shelf space. Your turf is your kingdom — protect it from pests with Triple Crown Golf and T&O insecticides. One Insecticide to Rule Pests Long - Lasting Residual Protection FMC Turf @FMCturf FMC Turf For more on Triple Crown, visit or contact your FMC Market Specialist or local FMC Sales Agent. Triple Crown Golf and T&O insecticides work through contact, translaminar and systemic activity, making them valuable tools against sucking pests that feed on a plant's vascular system as well as foliar-feeding insects.
