General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide is an EC formulation and is to be diluted with water prior to use. Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide controls leafminers and mites and suppresses whiteflies, thrips and aphids on the ornamental species listed on the label.

Resistance Management

Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide is an insecticide/miticide and some target pests may develop resistance to Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide treatments. Use resistance management practices when using Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide on plants that are hosts of labeled pests that have more than one generation per crop or year. Typical strategies include, but are not limited to, rotation to other insecticides with different modes of action, treatment of successive generations with different products, applications made at specified label rates and at specified spray intervals, and the use of non-chemical alternatives (for example, beneficial arthropods or rotation of susceptible to non-susceptible plants). Contact your State Cooperative Extension Service for additional information on these or other resistance management strategies.

To manage susceptibility in Liriomyza leafminer species, make up to three applications of Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide and then rotate to Citation Insecticide (which contains the active ingredient cyromazine) for no more than three applications before rotating back to Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide or using another insecticide. Alternating between these two products which have different modes of action should be based on the generation of Liriomyza species to avoid applying Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide to successive generations.

Plant Tolerance

Although Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide has been tested for tolerance on a variety of ornamental plants, it is not possible to test Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide under all application conditions, such as when Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide is applied with combination products or with surfactants or adjuvants. Test a small area of plants for phytotoxicity to Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide before making applications to large blocks of plants.

Phytotoxicity has been observed after the use of Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide on certain species of ferns (e.g., Adiantum spp.) and Shasta Daisy (L. eucanthemum spp.). Solera ATO, LLC does not recommend the use of Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide on ferns or Shasta Daisy.

Restrictions

- Do not use Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide for suppression of aphids, whiteflies, and thrips on roses, chrysanthemums, and gerbera. These ornamentals are primary hosts of mites and Liriomyza leafminers and Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide applications should target these insect pests. Additional applications of Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide to suppress aphids, thrips, and whiteflies on these plants will increase the selection pressure on mites and Liriomyza leafminers which may result in greater tolerance of these pests to Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide.

- Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

- Do not apply by air.

- To manage resistance do not use in citrus nurseries.

- Do not apply less than 8.0 fl oz or more than 16 fl oz per acre.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

ORNAMENTALS - (MITES, TWOSPOTTED SPIDER MITE, ETC.) [PESTS CONTROLLED AT 4 FLUID OUNCE / 100 GALLONS]

Mix Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide with a sufficient amount of water. Make applications as a foliar spray and ensure crops receive a thorough, uniform coverage.

- Make applications of Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide in 200 to 400 gallons of water per acre. For thorough coverage of plants, more than 400 gal. of water per acre may be required.

- Use at least 8 fl oz per acre if using less than 200 gals.

- Use no more than 16 fl oz per acre in 400 or more gal. of water (that is, add 2.5 fl oz Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide per 100 gals. if total spray volume is 650 gals.).

- Apply when mites first appear. Make repeat applications as necessary to maintain control.

- For Tarsonemid mites, make repeat applications to newly developing tissue to maintain control.

Horticultural Spray Oils: For enhanced residual control of target pests on field-grown woody ornamentals, landscape plants, and Christmas trees, add a horticultural spray oil to the Solera Abamectin 0.15 EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide spay mix at 0.5 to 1.0% of the spray volume. To maintain control, make repeat applications as necessary at 7 days intervals. Some plants may be sensitive to these oils. Test a small area of plants for phytotoxicity to Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide mixed with horticultural spray oil. Evaluate the plants after 2 weeks before applying Solera Abamectin 0.15EC T&O Insecticide/Miticide mixed with oils on a large number of plants. In addition, plant damage from treatment with such mixtures may be increased if the temperatures are very cold or very warm. Read and follow directions on the spray oil label. Do not exceed the maximum rates listed on the label.
