General Information


For Professional Use Only (Not for application by homeowners).

Endeavor is an insecticide that controls aphids and whiteflies on landscape ornamentals, field grown ornamentals, container grown ornamentals, nonbearing fruit and nut trees in nurseries, Christmas trees, ground covers, and ornamental plants in greenhouses, lath- and shade-houses and interiorscapes.

Mode of Action

Endeavor has a mode of action that controls aphids and whiteflies by stopping their feeding activity. These insects stop feeding within hours, but remain on the plant for a short time (2-4 days). Endeavor has residual activity in the plant and will control aphids and whiteflies that move onto the plant after spraying.

Suitability for Integrated Pest Management Programs

Endeavor is suitable for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs as it has a low toxicity to beneficial insect (including honeybees and bumblebees) and mite populations.

Use Restrictions

Do not apply aerially.

Do not apply more than 10 oz./A per application.

For outdoor use, do not apply more than 48 oz./A per year.

For indoor use, do not apply more than 100 oz. (48 oz. in CA only)/A per year.


Endeavor has been evaluated for phytotoxicity on many greenhouse, nursery, and ornamental plants. All plants tested under university research and commercial production conditions have not shown phytotoxicity at labeled rates of Endeavor. While many species and cultivars have been tested, a small group of each specie and cultivar should be evaluated for phytotoxicity two weeks prior to making applications to the entire crop. Applications should not be made to poinsettia after bract formation.

Resistance Management

Endeavor belongs to a class of chemicals not previously used as pesticides and not known to be crossresistant to other classes of insecticides. However, insect pests are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly. Because resistance development cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the crop and use area. Such strategies may include rotating with insecticides with different modes of action. Consult your local pest control advisor or extension office for details. If resistance to this product develops in your area, it may not provide adequate control. If you experience difficulty with control, and resistance is a likely cause, consult your local Syngenta Crop Protection representative or local agricultural authorities for the best alternative method of control. Syngenta encourages responsible product stewardship to ensure effective long-term control of the insect pests on the label.
