TOURISMO insecticide is a suspension concentrate which contains 3.5 lbs. of active ingredients per gallon. This product is a contact insecticide used for the control of Lepidopteran and Homopteran insect pests in field and orchard crops. TOURISMO insecticide should be used in a program with other products to provide season long protection. Apply as a spray as directed in the “Application Directions” section of the label.
TOURISMO insecticide works primarily through contact action, so good spray coverage is necessary. Mix with sufficient water and apply as a foliar spray to obtain uniform coverage. Dense foliage or excessive growth will often prevent adequate coverage; adjust spray volumes accordingly. Treat plants when pests are immature or at a susceptible stage and populations are building, before crop damage occurs.
This product is not for sale, sale into, distribution, and or use in Nassau and Suffolk counties of New York State.
Use in enclosed structures, such as greenhouses or planthouses, is not permitted unless specified otherwise by state-specific supplemental labeling.
INSECT RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
TOURISMO insecticide contains two active ingredients with different modes of action. Flubendiamide is classified by IRAC in Group 28-ryanodine receptor modulators. Buprofezin is classified by IRAC in Group 16- chitin synthesis inhibitors. Cross-resistance between these classes of chemistry and other modes of action has not been documented. However, repeated use of the same chemistry has been shown to result in the buildup of resistant strains of insects. Rotate the use of TOURISMO insecticide with alternate mode of action insecticides.
Consult your local horticultural advisor for the most appropriate alternative products. Resistance management strategies recommend that you DO NOT apply rates lower than recommended on the label. For best results, do not make more applications of TOURISMO insecticide than permitted on the label in a single growing season. Also, for more information about Insect Resistance Management (IRM), visit the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) on the web at http://www.irac-online.org.
Applications should be made immediately after the spray solution is prepared. Thorough spray coverage is essential for effective control. Applications may be made with high or low volume spray equipment that provides thorough coverage of the plant. Apply with properly calibrated spray equipment. For best results, apply when pest populations are beginning to build, before reaching economic thresholds. Consult your local agricultural advisor, state cooperative extension service, or regional Nichino America representative for recommendations.
Apply TOURISMO insecticide in a minimum of 100 gallons of water per acre using ground sprayer or airblast (air assist) spray equipment. Use higher spray volume to provide adequate coverage in larger trees with dense foliage.
