METHOD OF APPLICATION

Apply using airblast application equipment only. Applications made at pink and/or petal fall provide best control of Tarnished Plant Bug and Green Fruitworm. For best control of first generation White Apple Leafhopper, apply when nymphs first appear on leaves. If necessary, prior to petal fall, use .75 lb. per 100 gals. to control Apple Aphid and Rosy Apple Aphid. For control of Tentiform Leafminer, make first application as soon as moth flight begins. A second application should be made 10 days later.

- Do not apply by air.

- Do not feed pomace from treated apples to livestock.

- Do not feed cull fruits to animals or allow livestock to graze in treated orchards.

- Do not make more than 2 applications during the fruiting period.

- Exception for airblast application to apples: when application using enclosed-cab airblast equipment is not feasible in apple orchards, applicators are permitted to use open-cab airblast equipment PROVIDED they are wearing chemical-resistant headgear AND maximum PPE clothing (i.e., baseline clothing plus organic vapor respirator, coveralls over long-sleeved shirt and long pants, chemical-resistant gloves, chemical-resistant shoes plus socks; and goggles or face shield).
