TURFGRASS - CHINCH BUGS ETC.
APPLICATION ON TURFGRASS
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE may be used to control listed insect pests on turfgrass in residential lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields and sod farms.
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE controls listed soil inhabiting pests such as Northern & Southern masked chafers, Cyclocephala borealis, C. immaculata, and/or C. lurida; Asiatic garden beetle, Maladera castanea; European chafer, Rhizotrogus majalis; Green June beetle, Cotinis nitida; May or June beetle, Phyllophaga spp.; Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica; Oriental beetle, Anomala orientalis; Billbugs Spherophorus spp.; Annual bluegrass weevil, Hyperodes spp.; Black turfgrass ataenius, Ataenius spretulus and Aphodius spp.; European Crane Fly, Tipula paludosa; and mole crickets, scapteriscus spp. QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE can also be used for suppression of cutworms and chinch bugs.
For optimum control, make applications preceding or during the egg laying period of the target pest. The active ingredient in QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE has enough residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity. Application timing can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Most favorable control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests. Follow applications with sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.
RESTRICTIONS: Do not make applications when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Sufficient distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved under these conditions. The treated turf area must be in such a condition that the rainfall or irrigation will penetrate vertically in the soil profile.
Do not exceed a total of 1.6 pt (0.4 lb of active ingredient)/A per year.
APPLICATION EQUIPMENT FOR USE ON TURFGRASS
Apply QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE in sufficient water to provide adequate distribution in the treated area. The use of accurately calibrated equipment normally used for the application of turfgrass insecticides is required. Use equipment which will produce a uniform, coarse droplet spray, using a low pressure setting to eliminate off target drift. Check calibration periodically to ensure that equipment is working properly.
RESTRICTION: Do not apply through any irrigation system.
APPLICATION IN GREENHOUSES, NURSERIES, ORNAMENTALS, FRUIT AND NUT TREES AND VEGETABLE PLANTS
APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS AND VEGETABLE PLANTS
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE may be used to control listed insect pests on ornamental and vegetable plants in nurseries and greenhouses. Insect protection is achieved because QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE is a systemic product and the active ingredient moves upward into the plant system. Apply QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE to the growing part of the plant for more absorption of the active ingredient. Nitrogen containing fertilizer may be added to the solution to aid in the uptake of the active ingredient where applicable. Apply QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE as a foliar spray or by soil applications such as soil injection, drenches, chemigation and broadcast sprays.
Soil applications to plants with woody stems will require applications of QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE before expected pest infestations due to the delay in the uptake of the active ingredient and the time until the product is taken up throughout the plant.
Restriction: For outdoor applications, do not exceed a total of 1.6 pt (0.4 lb of active ingredient) /A per year.
Bark Media: The length of protection after treatment with QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE may be shortened if the media has 30% or more bark content.
APPLICATION EQUIPMENT FOR ORNAMENTALS AND VEGETABLE PLANTS
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE mixes with water and may be applied with different types of application equipment. After mixing with the correct amount of water, follow the application directions for the selected use pattern.
For applications on hard to wet foliage such as holly, pine or ivy, the use of a spreader/ sticker is recommended.
For application by concentrate or mist type spray equipment, use the same amount as would be used in a dilute application.
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE is compatible with frequently used fungicides, miticides, liquid fertilizers. Compatibility may be tested in a small jar by using the correct proportion of products if compatibility information is not available.
For suppression of chinch bugs, apply before hatching of the first instar nymphs.
To control mole crickets apply before or during the peak egg hatch period. Use a curative insecticide in addition to QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE when adults or large nymphs are present and actively tunneling. Follow label instructions for other insecticides when tank-mixing.
Consult your local turf, state Agricultural Experiment Station, or State Extension Service Specialists for more specific information regarding timing of application.
Irrigation or rainfall must occur within 24 hours after application to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Do not mow turf or lawn area until after sufficient irrigation or rainfall has occurred so that uniformity of application will not be affected.
- Do not apply this product in a way that will contact people or pets.
- Do not allow children or pets to enter treated areas until sprays have dried.
- Do not allow this product to contact plants in bloom if bees are foraging in the treatment area.
