SOD FARMS (FOLIAR) - BLUEGRASS ANNUAL WEEVIL, ETC.

General Information

Resistance Management

Some pests are known to develop resistance to insecticides that have been used repeatedly. While the development of insect resistance is well understood, it is not easily predicted. Therefore insecticides should be used in conjunction with the resistance management strategies in the area. Consult the local or State agricultural advisors for details. If insect resistance should develop in the area, this product used alone may not continue to provide sufficient levels of pest control. If the reduced levels of control can not be attributed to improper application techniques, improper use rates, improper application timing, unfavorable weather conditions or abnormally high pest pressure, a resistant strain may have developed.

To reduce the potential for pesticide resistance, use this product in a rotation program with other classes of chemistry and modes of action. Always apply this product at the recommended rates and in accordance with the use directions. Do not use less than recommended label rates alone or in tank mixtures. Do not use reduced rates of the tank mix partner. For optimum performance, scout fields carefully and begin applications when pests are smaller rather than larger. If resistance is suspected, contact the local or State agricultural advisors.

Application and Mixing Instructions

Capture LFR is an insecticide/miticide that contains 1.5 pounds of bifenthrin per gallon. Capture LFR can be mixed directly with liquid fertilizer or with water. The rate of application is variable according to pest pressure, timing of treatments and field scouting. Use lower rates under light to moderate pest infestations, and higher rates under heaver pest pressure.

In arid climates, applications rates are generally higher. Fill the tank one-half full with liquid fertilizer or water and begin spray tank agitation.

Add the proper amount of Capture LFR, and then add the rest of the fertilizer or water. Maintain agitation until the mixture has been applied.

In New York State this product may not be applied within 100 feet (using ground equipment) of coastal marshes or streams that drain into coastal marshes.

Capture LFR can be applied in-furrow with the seed, as a T-band (band over the open furrow), as a broadcast application, as a band over the row or as a transplant-water drench during setting. Refer to the table s below for pest control or suppression recommendations.

Capture LFR can be mixed with commonly used liquid starter or pop-up fertilizers. Follow liquid fertilizer recommendations regarding seed safety and use guidelines. It is recommended that a preliminary jar test be conducted using appropriate ratios of fertilizer and Capture LFR. It is not recommended to allow a tank mixture to set overnight, but if this occurs agitate tank mixture prior to application.

California Closed System

Special Equipment: The registration of Capture LFR in California requires that the product be used in closed systems that meet the criteria for closed systems as established by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. The criteria and a list of the closed systems meeting the criteria are available through the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

Maximum Allowable Capture LFR Use Per Acre Per Season

Refer to the individual crop sections for maximum allowable Capture LFR usage per acre per season. The maximum allowable use must include all registered use patterns including at-plant, soil applied and/or foliar applications for the 12 months period. The 12 month period is to begin upon the initial application to the acre.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

SOD FARMS (FOLIAR)

Apply as a broadcast treatment. Use higher volumes up to 10 gallons of carrier per 1000 square feet to get uniform coverage when treating dense grass foliage.

Irrigation to treated area within a few hours following application can improve efficacy to sub-surface pests such as, but not limited to, mole crickets.

The application rates listed in the following table will provide excellent control of the respective pests under typical conditions. However, at the discretion of the applicator, Capture LFR may be applied at up to 0.4 fl. oz. per 1000 square feet to control each of the pests listed in this table.

The higher application rates should be used when maximum residual control is desired or heavy pest populations occur.

- This use is not permitted in California unless allowed by an approved supplemental label.

In New York State, this product may NOT be applied to any grass or turf area within 100 feet of a water body (lake, pond, river, stream, wetland, or drainage ditch).

In New York State, do make a single repeat application of this product if there are signs of renewed insect activity, but not sooner than two weeks after the first application.

Comments

- Annual Bluegrass Weevil (Hyperodes) adults: Applications should be timed to control adult weevils as they leave their overwintering sites and move into grass areas. This movement generally begins when Forsythia is in full bloom and concludes when flowering dogwood (Cornus florida) is in full bloom. Consult your State Cooperative Extension Service for more specific information regarding application timing.

- Billbug adults: Applications should be made when adult billbugs are first observed during April and May. Degree day models have been developed to optimize application timing. Consult your State Cooperative Extension Service for information specific to your region. In temperate regions, spring applications targeting billbug adults will also provide control of over-wintered chinch bugs.

- Black Turfgrass Ataenius adults: Applications should be made during May and July to control the first and second generation of black turfgrass ataenius adults, respectively. The May application should be timed to coincide with the full bloom stage of Vanhoutte spiraea (Spiraea vanhouttei) and horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum). The July application should be timed to coincide with the blooming of Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus).

- Mites: To ensure optimal control of eriophyid mites, apply in combination with the labeled application rate of a surfactant. A second application, five to seven days after the first, may be necessary to achieve acceptable control.
