Malice 0.5G will control insects on turf and ornamentals grown in commercial and residential landscapes. Malice 0.5G is a systemic insecticide applied as a soil treatment only and is translocated upward within the plant. For best results, Malice 0.5G must be applied where the roots of the target plants can absorb the active ingredient. After application, irrigate moderately but thoroughly being sure to avoid leaching and runoff from the container for at least three irrigations or 10 days whichever is longer.
Treated areas may be replanted with any crop specified on an imidacloprid label, or with any crop for which a tolerance exists for the active ingredient. For crops not listed on an imidacloprid label, or for crops for which no tolerances for the active ingredient have been established, a 12-month plant-back interval should be observed.
Malice 0.5G General Use Precautions:
- Do NOT apply more than 80 lbs. (0.4 lb. of active ingredient) per acre per year.
- Following application, avoid runoff or puddling of irrigation water.
- Avoid application of Malice 0.5G to areas which are waterlogged or saturated, which will not allow penetration into the root zone of the plant.
- Prior to commercial use of this product, be sure to carefully calibrate application equipment.
APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS
NOTE: Malice 0.5G may NOT be used in commercial greenhouses or nurseries.
Malice 0.5G can be applied as a broadcast application on ornamentals intended for aesthetic purposes or climatic modification in commercial and residential landscapes such as interior plantscapes, ornamental gardens or parks, or on golf courses or lawns and grounds.
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. Applications may be made preceding the egg laying activity of the target pests and high levels of control may be achieved when applications are made proceeding or during the egg laying period. Consult your local State Agricultural Experiment Station or State Extension Turf Specialist for more specific information regarding timing of application.
Apply as a broadcast treatment. Prior to application, remove black plastic or other weed barrier material that will not permit water permeability.
For optimum control, mechanical incorporation, irrigation or rainfall should occur within 24 hours after application to move the active Ingredient into soil.
Be sure to read the \"Application Equipment\" section of the label under \"GENERAL INFORMATION\".
