General Information

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.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

POME FRUITS

Apply specified dosage as foliar spray as needed after petal-fall is complete.

For control of rosy apple aphid, apply prior to leafrolling caused by the pest.

For first generation leafminer control, make first application as soon as petal-fall is complete. Greatest leafminer control will result from the earliest possible application. For second and succeeding generations of leafminer, optimal control is obtained from applications made early in the adult flight against egg and early instar larvae. A second application may be required 10 days later if severe pressure continues or if generations are overlapping. A single application may result in suppression only. QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE will not control late stage larvae.

For San Jose scale, time applications to the crawler stage. Treat each generation.

For late season (preharvest) control of leafhopper species, apply QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF & ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE while most leafhoppers are in the nymphal stage.

For optimal control of mealybug, insure good spray coverage of the trunk and scaffolding limbs or other resting sites of the mealybug.

Do not apply more than 6.0 fluid ounces per acre in a single application. Do not make more than 5 applications.

Allow 10 or more days between applications. Allow at least 7 days between last application and harvest.

Not for use in California for control on pears.

Method
Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours

Exception: If the product is applied by drenching, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
