HOPS - ROOT WEEVILS

General Information

Resistance: Some insects are known to develop resistance to products used repeatedly for control. Because the development of resistance cannot be predicted, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area. Consult your local or state agricultural authorities or universities for details.

If resistance to this product develops in your area, this product, or other products with a similar mode of action, may not provide adequate control. If poor performance cannot be attributed to improper application or extreme weather conditions, a resistant strain of insect may be present. If you experience difficulty with control and resistance is a reasonable cause, immediately consult your local company representative or agricultural advisor for the best alternative method of control for your area. 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.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Unless otherwise directed by registered supplemental labeling, follow the Directions for Use in each crop group section.

The product in this outer package is a wettable powder formulation of the insecticide bifenthrin packaged in a translucent water soluble bag. Do not allow the inner bag to become wet before adding it to the spray or nurse tank. Do not handle the inner bag with wet hands or wet gloves. Rough handling may cause breakage. Do not store at temperatures below 32°F (0°C). Allow to warm above 50°F (10°C) before use. Cooler water temperatures increase the time needed for the inner bag to dissolve completely.

Brigade WSB Insecticide needs to be diluted with water prior to spray application. Do not use nozzle screens (eg. strainers) greater than 50 mesh size. Determine the number of water soluble bag(s) to make up necessary spray suspension.

Calculate the number of bags needed for the recommended rate using the formula in the label.

Application Instructions

Rate of application is variable according to pest pressure, timing of sprays, and field scouting. Use lower rates under light to moderate infestation; higher rates under heavy insect pressure and for mite control. Arid climates generally require higher rates. In New York State this product may not be applied within 100 feet (using ground equipment) to 300 feet (using aerial equipment) of coastal marshes or streams that drain into coastal marshes. Do not cultivate within 10’ of the aquatic area so as to allow growth of a vegetative filter strip.
