Mammoth CannControl Availability Map
What are the main benefits of running Canncontrol?
Control AND prevention of all types of mites, thrips, aphids, whiteflies, fungus gnats, as well as powdery mildew and botrytis (grey mold).
Keeping plants free of these insects and diseases lets the plant focus on growth and development, rather than fighting pest pressure.
Is Canncontrol organic?
Canncontrol is not organic/OMRI-listed, however it is formulated with all-natural, plant-based ingredients.
What are the ingredients of Canncontrol?
The active ingredients are 55% corn oil & 15% thyme oil. The inert (inactive) ingredient is 30% oleic acid.
I already use a pesticide product, how is Canncontrol different from what I’m already using?
Canncontrol is a unique formulation that is all-natural & plant-based; it is not a synthetic pesticide. Canncontrol has an active ingredient of Thymol, which is an extract from thyme oil – it kills & repels insects and plant diseases. Canncontrol works great on its own and in an IPM rotation.
Is Canncontrol a liquid or dry product?
Mammoth Canncontrol is a liquid product.
What is the shelf life of Canncontrol? When does it expire?
2 years. Under normal storage conditions, the product lifespan is indefinite.
How should I store Canncontrol?
Store out of direct sunlight and avoid extreme temperatures.
How do I measure Mammoth Canncontrol?
Canncontrol can always be measured with a liquid measuring cup. If working with a 250mL, 500mL, or 1000mL bottle – you could use the tip & pour measurement device on the actual bottle.
How often do I apply?
Apply Canncontrol once per week for preventative measures. If controlling an active insect infestation, apply once per week, at least 4 weeks in a row in order to disrupt the insect breeding cycle.
What is the recommended application method and rate for Canncontrol?
You can use Canncontrol as a foliar spray or as a root drench. Using Canncontrol at 1oz/gal is our recommended starting point. When using Canncontrol to control an active mite or insect infestation or a plant disease infection, the rate of application can be increased up to 3oz/gal to achieve control of the pest/disease issue.
Should I use Canncontrol as a foliar or a root drench?
It depends on what pest or disease is trying to be controlled or prevented. We recommend using Canncontrol as a foliar spray for insects and diseases (that are present on the above-ground part of the plant (i.e. powdery mildew). For diseases or insects that are located in the root zone (i.e. fungus gnats), we recommend a root drench application.
When should I add Canncontrol to water/fertilizer mix when mixing?
It should be added after Silica has been added and before beneficial additives are added. You can mix Canncontrol in at the same time as your fertilizers/nutrients.
How long can I leave in solution after mixing?
Canncontrol will remain in solution for a longer period of time. However, to ensure maximum efficacy we recommend using the mixed solution within 1 week.
Can I use Canncontrol on my seedlings/cuttings/clones?
Yes; you can use Canncontrol on hardened seedlings and/or clones & cuttings.
Using Canncontrol on new clones/cuttings coming from an outside source is a great way to ensure you’re bringing a clean clone/cutting into your grow.
Can I add Canncontrol to a nutrient mix? If so, when? Is the order of mixing important?
Canncontrol mixes well with any nutrient mix. If you ever want to test compatibility, we recommend using a jar compatibility test.
The order of mixing is Mammoth Silica, Nutrients & Pesticides (including Canncontrol), pH adjust if necessary, then add any beneficials (Mammoth P) as the final component.
When can I use Canncontrol?
We recommend using Canncontrol on hardened seedlings, cuttings, and clones to ensure they have a clean start, continuing to use throughout the vegetative growth stage. Using Canncontrol earlier in the growth cycle will increase ensures the plant goes into the flower cycle pest & disease-free.
Can I use Canncontrol in plants that are flowering and/or fruiting?
Canncontrol is a 25(b) product which offers maximum effectiveness while not having toxic ingredients. We recommend ceasing applications of Pest Control + 2-3 weeks prior to harvest. Canncontrol takes approximately 7 days to fully break down after it’s been applied.
Do I need to add a surfactant or wetting agent when mixing Canncontrol?
No, Canncontrol has a built-in wetting agent/surfactant. The 30% oleic acid in the formulation works as a surfactant/wetting agent.
Do I need to add an emulsifier alongside Canncontrol to help keep it in solution within my reservoir/tank?
No, Canncontrol has a built-in emulsifier (oleic-acid compounds) which enable Canncontrol to be easily mixed into a water-based solution. The oleic-acid compounds also double as a wetting agent/surfactant.
Do I need to turn lights off following a root/soil drench of Canncontrol?
No. Lights do not need to be turned down or off when applying Canncontrol as a soil drench.
Do I need to turn lights off following a foliar application of Canncontrol?
Yes. Lights need to be turned off after foliar application because light refraction could penetrate the applied droplets could and could burn the leaves (like using a magnifying glass with the sun to burn a hole in a leaf).
Can I use Canncontrol with other Mammoth products?
With Mammoth P & Myco – Yes. We recommend adding Mammoth P after Canncontrol has been mixed into solution in a tank/reservoir.
With Mammoth Si – Yes. We recommend mixing Mammoth Si into a tank/reservoir first, then adding Canncontrol once Si has been added.
Are there any products I shouldn’t run this with?
Sulfur-based products. Elemental sulfur (which is the main component of micronized sulfur) and horticultural oils, such as Canncontrol, should never be applied within 30 days of each other because they can react together to create phytotoxins.
Can I use Canncontrol with beneficial insects?
Canncontrol could negatively impact beneficial insects if used within 7 days of application of our product. Canncontrol should break down enough after 7 days that you can introduce beneficial insects. One rule of thumb: do not apply Canncontrol directly to beneficial insects.
Is Canncontrol systemic?
No. Our Canncontrol product is not systemic, meaning the plants will not absorb Canncontrol. Canncontrol is a contact & vapor-action pesticide, so it will be necessary to fully cover affected areas to see proper effectiveness. We recommend re–applying Canncontrol every 7 days.
