General Information

General Applications Instructions

Talstar Nursery Flowable insecticide/miticide formulation mixes readily with water and other aqueous carriers, and controls a wide spectrum of insects and mites on trees, shrubs, foliage plants, non-bearing fruit and nut trees, and flowers in greenhouses and outdoor nurseries. Non-bearing crops are perennial crops that will not produce a harvestable raw agricultural commodity during the season of application.

Talstar Nursery Flowable may be tank-mixed with other products, including insect growth regulators. When tank mixing Talstar Nursery Flowable with other products, observe all precautions and limitations on each separate product label. The addition of spreader stickers is not necessary. The physical compatibility of Talstar Nursery Flowable may vary with different sources of pesticide products, and local cultural practices. Any tank mixture which has not been previously tested should be prepared on a small scale (pint or quart jar), using the proper proportions of chemicals and water to ensure the physical compatibility of the mixture.

The following procedure is recommended for preparation of a new tank mix, unless specified otherwise in label directions: (1) Add wettable powders to tank water, (2) Agitate, (3) Add liquids and flowables, (4) Agitate, (5) Add emulsifiable concentrates, and (6) Agitate. If a mixture is found to be incompatible following this order of addition, try reversing the order of addition, or increase the volume of water. Note: If the tank-mixture is found to be compatible after increasing the amount of water, then the sprayer will need to be recalibrated for a higher volume application. Do not allow tank mix to stand overnight.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

Bagworms: Applications when larvae are young will be most effective.

Certain cultivars may be sensitive to the final spray solution. A small number of plants should be treated and observed for one week prior to application to the entire planting.

Apply with ground equipment only.

Do not apply when wind direction favors downwind drift towards nearby water bodies.

Do not apply when wind velocity exceeds 10 mph.

Avoid application when wind gusts approach 10 mph.

Do not apply when a temperature inversion exists.

Apply using the largest nozzle size compatible with adequate coverage.

Do not apply if rain is expected within 12 hours (or whatever time is necessary for the spray to dry).

Do not apply by ground equipment within 25 feet of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, permanent streams, marshes or natural ponds, estuaries, and commercial fish farm ponds. When treating tall trees (>15 feet) from the ground with high pressure sprays or during any application with air assisted equipment (mist blower) do not apply within 150 feet of aquatic areas.
