About Application

Cultivation Sites and Product Use

Used to control mushroom fly pressure. Controls the adult stages of flies and gnats. Can be used within individual rooms on a farm including but not limited to Agaricus, Shiitake, Oyster and other exotic mushrooms.


Particularly useful during the times when adults are most likely present (empty houses and premises, filing, growth-pinning and picking times). MyCoNet® can be applied to walls, floors, ceilings daily depending on fly pressure. Can also be used on the exterior of the building and in the “breezeways” as a crack and crevice treatment.

3D-IPNS technology keeps the insect in the treated zone and improves the contact between the insect and the pyrethrins.

"The thing I liked about MyCoNet® the most is when we applied it our fly numbers were down the next day. Applying twice at spawn run also helps us keep moisture in the air."

Steve D'antonnil

"MyCoNet® is easy to use, either as a drench on top of the plastic or at casing. I believe it is effective on the phorid flies."
