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.
APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS
PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide is for use on ornamentals in commercial and residential landscapes and interior plantscapes. PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide is a systemic product and will be translocated upward into the plant system from root uptake. To assure optimum effectiveness, the product must be placed where the growing portion of the target plant can absorb the active ingredient. The addition of a nitrogen containing fertilizer, where applicable, into the solution may enhance the uptake of the active ingredient. Application can be made by foliar application or soil applications; including soil injection, drenches, and broadcast sprays. Foliar applications offer locally systemic activity against insect pests. When making soil applications to plants with woody stems, systemic activity will be delayed until the active ingredient is translocated throughout the plant. In some cases, this translocation delay could take 60 days or longer. For this reason, make application prior to anticipated pest infestation to achieve optimum levels of control.
RESTRICTION: Outdoor applications cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pints (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.
ANT MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS
Use PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide to control aphids, scale insects, mealybugs and other sucking pests on ornamentals to limit the honeydew available as a food source for ant populations. PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide applications can be then be supplemented with residual sprays, bait placements or other ant control tactics to further reduce the pest population.
APPLICATION EQUIPMENT FOR FOLIAR APPLICATIONS
PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide mixes readily with water and may be used in many types of application equipment. Mix product with the required amount of water and apply as desired dependent upon the selected use pattern. When making foliar applications on hard to wet foliage such as holly, pine, or ivy, the addition of a spreader/ sticker is recommended. If concentrate or mist type spray equipment is used, apply an equivalent amount on the area sprayed, as would be used in a dilute application. PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide has been found to be compatible with commonly used fungicides, miticides, liquid fertilizers, and other commonly used insecticides. Check physical compatibility using the correct proportion of products in a small jar test if local experience is unavailable.
RESTRICTION: Do not apply through any irrigation system.
Mealybugs and San Jose Scale - Not for use in California for control on pears.
6.0 fl oz/A - The amount of PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide required per acre will depend on tree size and volume of foliage present. The rate per
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. PROKOZ ZENITH 2F 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 PROKOZ ZENITH 2F Insecticide while most leafhoppers are in the nymphal
For optimal control of mealybug, insure good spray coverage of the trunk and scaffolding limbs or other resting sites of the mealybug.
- Follow application restrictions for Non-Agricultural Uses on page 3 to protect bees and other insect pollinators.
- Do not make more than 4 applications.
- Allow 10 or more days between applications.
- Allow at least 7 days between last application and harvest.
- Keep children and pets off treated area until dry.
