General Information


- For commercial use only.

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

TetraSan 5 WDG is a miticide that controls major tetranychid mite species in egg and nymph stages of growth. Foliar applications of TetraSan 5 WDG can be made for control of spider mites infesting indoor (greenhouses, lathhouses, shadehouses and interiorscapes) and outdoor ornamentals, including flowering and foliage crops, ground covers, shrubs and ornamental trees, non-bearing fruit and nut trees, and Christmas trees. TetraSan 5 WDG may be used in ornamental production areas and in the landscape in residential and commercial areas. TetraSan 5 WDG exhibits strong translaminar movement within plant leaves. Spray contacting the upper surface of leaves will absorb into the leaves and locally translocate within the leaf. Thus mites feeding on the undersides of leaves will be controlled.

IMPORTANT: Applications of TetraSan 5 WDG may be made to a wide range of ornamental plants. To ensure that TetraSan 5 WDG is compatible with the variety or cultivar under your specific conditions, test the product on a limited scale and observe for phytotoxicity for two weeks before making large scale applications. The large number of existing ornamental varieties and cultivars coupled with the constant introduction of new varieties makes it impossible to field test TetraSan 5 WDG in every locale where sold or in all of the combinations created by nursery differences.

Factors that can influence phytotoxicity to any applied pesticide include soil or media type, pH, moisture or fertility, environmental conditions such as temperature, lighting or degree days and horticultural practices including planting dates, control of other pests, and timing of various horticultural practices.

TetraSan 5 WDG has not been tested in tank mix combinations, sequential pesticide treatments or with various adjuvants and surfactants. Do not apply to Poinsettia after bract formation.


Repeated use of the same class of miticides or miticides with similar modes of action can lead to the build up of resistant mite strains. For optimum resistance management, apply TetraSan 5 WDG no more than two times per cropping cycle (start to finish for one ornamental crop) or no more than two times per six months. TetraSan 5 WDG should be used in alternation with other miticide materials possessing dissimilar modes of action and/or with other chemical classes of miticides. Due to its unique chemistry and mode of action, TetraSan 5 WDG can be used in rotation with all other registered miticides in IPM and resistance management programs. Follow local, state and federal Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Resistance Management (RM) recommendations.

Read and follow all product labels before applying any miticide.


This bag contains multiple water soluble packets of TetraSan 5 WDG. Do not handle the packets with wet gloves or allow the packets to become wet prior to addition to spray tank. Do not break open packets.

Each packet contains 2 oz (1/8 lb) of TetraSan 5 WDG. If all packets are not used, close and reseal outer container to protect remaining packet(s).

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


PRODUCT RATE: Each water soluble packet contains 2 oz of TetraSan 5 WDG


Mix with sufficient water and apply as a foliar spray to obtain uniform coverage. When applied as a high volume spray, 100 gallons of spray solution will treat approximately 20,000 sq ft. TetraSan 5 WDG (Miticide/Ovicide) kills mite eggs (ovicidal) and nymphs, but not adult mites.

For best control, apply at first sign of infestation and before large numbers of adult mites are present. Make a second application if necessary, but no sooner than 21days after the first application. Do not apply TetraSan 5 WDG (Miticide/Ovicide) more than two times per cropping season.

TetraSan 5 WDG (Miticide/Ovicide) is transovarial, meaning that treated adult mites will not produce viable eggs.

NOTE: Since tomato varieties are numerous, constantly changing and may react differently to TetraSan 5 WDG (Miticide/Ovicide) and tank mixtures, test the product(s) on a small scale before making large-scale applications.


- Do not use with an adjuvant or surfactant.
