General Information


Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 is a broad spectrum insecticide, for control of listed insects infesting turfgrass, sod farms, landscape ornamentals, interior plantscapes and non-bearing fruit trees (including apple and pear) and nut trees (in landscapes). When applied as directed, Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 provides excellent and long residual insect control.


- Do not use a foliar application of clothianidin (Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1) following a soil application of clothianidin.

- Do not apply more than a total of 160 lbs of Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 (0.4 lb ai/A) per acre per season.

- If the maximum season limit of clothianidin as mentioned above has been applied and pest populations require additional treatments, use another registered pesticide that is not in the neonicotinoid class of chemistry.


Neither the manufacturer nor the seller has determined whether or not Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 can be used safely on all cultivars of plants listed on the label. Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 has been tested on many cultivars with no phytotoxicity observed at label rates. Since all plant species and their varieties and cultivars have not been tested for tolerance, it is recommended that a small number of plants be treated to make certain that no phytotoxicity occurs, prior to any large scale application to plants. The end user assumes all risks arising from application of Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 can be blended just prior to application or co-applied with other crop management tools. However, all plant species and their varieties and cultivars have not been tested with possible blended or co-applied combinations or sequential pesticide treatments. The user must conduct a small scale compatibility and phytotoxicity trial under local conditions to ensure compatibility prior to any large-scale use.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 can be used as directed on grass grown in industrial, commercial and residential landscapes such as, airports, athletic fields, cemeteries, commercial sod farms, golf courses, home lawns, parks and playgrounds.

Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 has sufficient residual activity to provide high levels of control when applications are made proceeding or during the egg laying activity of the target pests. The need for an application can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Follow applications with sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 can be applied to turf at 80 to 160 lbs per acre. The rate is dependent on the target pest(s), their stage of development and the desired of control. Multiple applications can be made but do not exceed the maximum amount per year (160 lbs/A). Consult your local State Agricultural Experiment Station, State Extension Turf Specialists or other turf experts for specific information concerning the timing of application(s). When targeting multiple pests, make application to earliest egg lay or adult flight. The high end of the rate range may be needed if extended control of secondary pests are desired.

Apply Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 as a broadcast application to turfgrass for control of targeted pests. Use a calibrated spreader to uniformly broadcast Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 over the treatment area. Do not mow turfgrass until after irrigation or rainfall has occurred to allow for the uptake and distribution of Arena 0.25 G Insecticide1 in soil and turfgrass.


Preventive applications: Make applications through peak egg hatch of target species. Use the upper end of the rate range if application is made 60 days or more prior to peak adult flight and/or egg lay.

Applications: For applications after egg hatch or when obvious turf damage has occurred use the upper end of the rate range.
