ALMOND ORCHARD FLOORS - ANT CONTROL IN FLOODED-IRRIGATED ORCHARDS

Apply the high rate to heavily infested areas and the low rate to lightly infested areas. Where ant colonies are abundant only in the berm areas, apply Quali-Pro Chlorpyrifos 4E at 8 pints (4 lbs. a.i.) per treated acre in 50 or more gallons of water to a 6- to 10-foot band along the treeline (berm).

Do not apply where weed growth or other obstructions would impede uniform coverage of the orchard floor. Mow or chemically control weeds before the application of Quali-Pro Chlorpyrifos 4E. Foliar applications of Quali-Pro Chlorpyrifos 4E may be made in addition to the orchard floor treatment.
