General Information

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.

SEE INDIVIDUAL SITES FOR SPECIFIC POLLINATOR PROTECTION APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS. IF NONE EXIST UNDER THE SPECIFIC SITE, FOR OUTDOOR FOLIAR APPLICATIONS, FOLLOW THESE APPLICATION DIRECTIONS.

This product is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment or residues on blooming crops/plants or weeds. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops/plants or weeds if bees are foraging the treatment area.

This chemical demonstrates the properties and characteristics associated with chemicals detected in groundwater. The use of this chemical in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow, may result in groundwater contamination.

NON-AGRICULTURAL USES

Do not apply PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide while bees are foraging. Do not apply PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide to plants that are flowering. Only apply after all flower petals have fallen off.

PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide can be used as directed on sod farms, and on turfgrass, and ornamentals on such sites: residential home lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, and athletic fields.

PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide can be used by soil application as directed on trees, shrubs, flowers, and groundcovers in sites: in and around the perimeter of industrial and commercial buildings and residential areas, and municipal, city, state, national, and private wooded and forested areas.

RESTRICTION: Not for use in commercial greenhouses, nurseries, or on grasses grown for seed, or on commercial fruit and nut trees.

RESISTANCE: Some insects are known to develop resistance to insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide contains a Group 4A insecticide. Insect biotypes with acquired or inherent resistance to Group 4A insecticides may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 4A insecticides are used repeatedly as the predominant method of control for targeted species.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

APPLICATION TO TURFGRASS
PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide can be used for the control of soil inhabiting pests of turfgrass, such as Northern & Southern masked chafers, Cyclocephala borealis, C. immaculata, and/or C. lurida; Asiatic garden beetle, Maladera castanea; European chafer, Rhizotroqus 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. PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide can also be used for suppression of cutworms and chinch bugs.

The active ingredient in PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide has sufficient residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity of the target pests. High levels of control can be achieved when applications are made preceding or during the egg laying period.

The need for an application can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Optimum control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

Do not apply when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Adequate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when these conditions exist. The treated turf area must be in such a condition that the rainfall or irrigation will penetrate vertically in the soil profile.

RESTRICTION: Do not apply more than a total of 1.6 pints (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT FOR USE ON TURFGRASS
Apply PROKOZ ZENITH 2F 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.

For suppression of chinch bugs, make application prior to the hatching of the first instar nymphs.
For control of mole crickets make application prior to or during the peak egg hatch period. If application is not made prior to egg hatch or when adults or large nymphs are present and actively tunneling, apply PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide in combination with a remedial insecticide to minimize damage to turf.
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.
For optimum control, if rainfall does not occur within 24 hours after application, irrigate to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON TURFGRASSES IN RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL, AND INDUSTRIAL AREAS
RESTRICTIONS:
- Do not apply more than 1.6 pt (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.
- 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 allow this product to contact plants in bloom while bees are foraging the treatment area.
- Do not graze treated areas or use clippings from treated areas for feed or forage.
- Do not allow runoff or puddling of irrigation water following application.
- Keep children and pets off treated area until dry.
- Do not apply PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide to areas which are water logged or saturated, which will not allow penetration into the root zone of the plant.

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.
