Understanding pesticide formulation abbreviations
 
Are you puzzled by those capital letter abbreviations that are part of a pesticide product’s name? What does the WG stand for in Crackdown® WG250? Does SP on a pesticide label mean “Packet Solution,” or “Soluble Powder,” or “Pourable Suspension?” The two or three letter acronyms are used as a shorthand way to either describe the formulation itself (for example, WP for “Wettable Powder”), or to describe characteristics of the formulation (such as RTU for “Ready-to-use”).

If there is a number next to the formulation letters, it indicates the amount of active ingredient (a.i.) by weight in the product. For example, Termidor®80WG is a water-dispersabele granule formulation that is 80% active ingredient (fipronil) and 20% is other ingredients.

There is an international coding system for abbreviating formulations but not all manufacturers follow them. To confuse the issue, manufacturers sometimes add their own abbreviations to jazz up the product name such as XT-2000 Orange Oil® or EcoViaTM IB where IB stands for Insect Blok. In the product ULD® BP-50, the ULD stands for Ultra Low Dosage but is a trademarked name. The entire list of pesticide formulation abbreviations is huge so we’re only listing some pertinent to the structural pest control industry here. Some you will recognise, many are new, all are subject to change.
