APPLICATION NOTES: Reapply as needed based on insect monitoring and field scouting programs. Use approved stickers for improved adherence to the leaf surface and protection from rainfall. In the event of rain, re-treatment is encouraged if approved stickers are not used. This product is not recommended in orchards with overhead irrigation. This product only affects adult male moths and will have not effect on female moths, eggs or larvae. If application occurs following biofix or during the growing season, the field must be treated with insecticide treatments that will effectively control hatching larvae until egg laying by previously mated female moths has ceased to occur. In moderate to high insect pressure situations, supplemental insecticide applications during the season can prove necessary to provide adequate protection to the developing crop. These supplemental insecticide applications are to be made based on trap monitoring, field scouting, and appropriate degree-day models for the local growing area and must be timed to control emerging larvae.
