A pure China Clay is used as a barrier that annoys and irritates pests and disguises the plant by coating it with a white layer. The pests and insects are unable to identify the plants treated coated with the Kaolin (China Clay). That’s why it is the most commonly used carrier against several pests on plants.
China Clay can be very useful to control a variety of insects like Japanese beetles, thrips, plant bugs, potato beetles and cucumber beetles on various vegetable crops. Well, Kaolin is non-toxic and used it to prevent the insects up to the week of harvest. However, China Clay for Insect control should be applied as a prophylactic to be more effective & do not control the insects that are established on the plants already.
