Forestry Health Products

Valent BioSciences specializes in the development and commercialization of biorational products that deliver target-specific, sustainable solutions. In forestry, VBC helps to protect our natural resources by offering two unique biorational solutions that achieve highly effective insect control while minimizing risks to other non-target organisms and the environment.

Foray® is the world’s industry-leading biorational product for control of lepidopteran pests based on Bacillus thuringiensis subsp. kurstaki (Btk). Foray products are based upon Btk strain ABTS-351, which has shown consistent and effective control of forest defoliators. Foray protects forests from harmful defoliation caused by specific caterpillar species.

 

Mimic® is an insect growth regulator product with a unique mode of action. Mimic affects the molting process of targeted caterpillar pests, helping to protect forests from harmful defoliators while preserving beneficial insects and the environment.
