General Information


Do Not Apply TRIMAX PRO In Enclosed Structures Such As Greenhouses Or Planthouses.

TRIMAX PRO should be applied as a directed or broadcast foliar spray. Thorough coverage of foliage is necessary without runoff for optimum insecticidal efficacy. Use adequate spray volumes, properly calibrated application equipment and spray adjuvant if necessary to obtain thorough coverage. Failure to provide adequate coverage and retention of TRIMAX PRO on leaves and fruit may result in loss of insect control or delay in onset of activity. TRIMAX PRO may be applied with properly calibrated ground or aerial application equipment. Minimum recommended spray volumes unless otherwise specified on crop specific recommended application sections are 10 gallons/Acre by ground application and 5 gallons/Acre through aerial equipment. TRIMAX PRO may also be applied by overhead chemigation (see additional CHEMIGATION DIRECTIONS FOR USE sectionon the label) if allowed in crop specific Recommended Application section.

TRIMAX PRO use on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting is generally not recommended but may be allowed under State specific supplemental labeling. As with any insecticide, care should be taken to minimize exposure of TRIMAX PRO to honey bees and other pollinators. Use of TRIMAX PRO on crops requiring bee pollination should be avoided during bloom and a minimum of 10 days prior to bloom. Additional information on TRIMAX PRO uses for these crops and other questions may be obtained from the Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, consultants or local Bayer CropScience representatives.

Do not apply more than 0.5 lb active ingredient per acre, per crop season, regardless of formulation or method of application, unless specified within a crop-specific Recommended Application section for a given crop.


TRIMAX PRO is a suspension concentrate (flowable) formulation with unique qualities and should be shaken well prior to measuring/mixing. The formulation is thixotropic and after sitting for a short time reverts to a gel or thick paste consistency helping to prevent phase separation common to most “flowables”. After moderate shaking the formulation thins to a relatively non-viscous liquid which pours and measures easily with very few trapped air bubbles - another common problem of most flowables.

TRIMAX PRO has demonstrated easy mixing/blooming in water with varying degrees of hardness and temperature. TRIMAX PRO has demonstrated good mixing and compatibility with many fluid fertilizers without dilution with water. However, because fertilizers vary widely in quality and composition it is suggested that a jar test be performed (see Compatibility Note on the label) prior to full-scale mixing.

To prepare the application mixture, add a portion of the required amount of water to the tank and with agitation add TRIMAX PRO. Complete filling tank with balance of water needed. Maintain sufficient agitation during both mixing and application. TRIMAX PRO may also be used with other pesticides and/or fertilizer solutions. Please see Compatibility Noteon the label. When tank mixtures of TRIMAX PRO and other pesticides are involved, prepare the tank mixture as recommended above and follow suggested Mixing Order below.

Mixing Order

When pesticide mixtures are needed, add wettable powders or wettable granules first, TRIMAX PRO and other flowable (suspension concentrate) products second, and emulsifiable concentrates last. Ensure good agitation as each component is added. Do not add an additional component until the previous is thoroughly mixed. If a fertilizer solution is added, a fertilizer/pesticide compatibility agent may be needed. Maintain constant agitation during both mixing and application to ensure uniformity of spray mixture.

Recommended Applications - TRIMAX PRO Insecticide

TRIMAX PRO may be applied with properly calibrated ground or aerial application equipment. Apply specified rate per acre as a directed or broadcast spray to infested area at earliest threshold for target pest, as population begins to develop. Thorough uniform coverage of all plant parts is required to achieve optimum control. Scout fields and retreat if needed. Make multiple applications of TRIMAX PRO to promote plant health and yield.

The lower rates can be used early season when pest pressures are low or when tank-mixing with other effective products registered for target insect control. Degree of control or suppression of additional labeled pests will be determined, in part, by the stage of pest development at application and infestation level of those pests. TRIMAX PRO provides optimal performance against early instar and early nymphal stages of insects as well as bollworm/budworm eggs. Incomplete coverage may result in slower activity and/or less overall control from a single application than an application made with higher gallonages. The addition of an organosilicone-based spray adjuvant may improve coverage.

Regardless of formulation or method of application, apply no more than 0.5 lb of the active ingredient per acre per season, including seed treatment, soil and foliar uses.
