ORNAMENTAL PLANTS AND FLOWERS - THYSANOPTERA - HIGH VOLUME APPLICATION
Azatrol EC Insecticide is a botanical product for control of insects on indoor and outdoor plants including ornamental trees, shrubs, flowers, garden vegetables, turfgrass, fruit trees and nut trees.
Azatrol EC Insecticide has repellent and anti-feedant properties and acts as an oviposition deterrent for some insects. When used as a component of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, Azatrol EC Insecticide provides an effective resistance management tool.
MODE OF ACTION:
Azatrol EC Insecticide controls target pests on contact or by ingestion. The product acts on pests by way of repellence, anti-feedance, and interference with the molting process.
Azadirachtin, an insect growth regulator (IGR), mimics the pests’ hormones and disrupts distinct stages of growth and development of insects and mites. The primary mode of action of azadirachtin is an interference with synthesis and metabolism of ecdysone and the juvenile hormone. Ecdysone is the molting hormone of insects, and azadirachtin can regulate growth leading to death before or during molting.
INDOOR AND OUTDOOR ORNAMENTAL TREES, SHRUBS, FLOWERS, AND PLANTS ESTABLISHED IN RESIDENTIAL, LANDSCAPE PLANTINGS AROUND INSTITUTIONAL, PUBLIC, COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL BUILDINGS, PARKS, RECREATIONAL AREAS, GREENHOUSES, SHADECLOTHS, NURSERIES, AND ATHLETIC FIELDS.
Azatrol EC Insecticide has been evaluated for phytotoxicity on a wide range of ornamentals and crops. However, since testing on all plant varieties is not feasible, test a small portion of the area to be treated for phytotoxicity before treating the entire area. All possible combinations or sequences of pesticide sprays, including other fertilizers, surfactants, adjuvants and other pesticides have not been tested. Thus, testing for phytotoxicity of spray mixtures is recommended.
The professional user assumes the responsibility for determining the level of tolerance of treated plants to Azatrol EC Insecticide when applied alone or in tank-mix combinations under commercial growing conditions.
Waxy bloom on certain ornamental plants may be reduced after an Azatrol EC Insecticide application.
Applications of Azatrol EC Insecticide may remove the glaucous ‘blue’ coloring from evergreens such as Colorado blue spruce and Koster spruce.
HIGH VOLUME APPLICATION
Apply Azatrol EC Insecticide at spray concentration of 0.25-1.70% v/v in sufficient amounts of water to achieve complete coverage. Use an adequate spray volume to wet the leaves (foliage) and stems. Spray volumes will vary with the plant size.
Attempt to penetrate dense foliage. Thorough coverage of the upper and lower leaf surfaces is critical for effective levels of control.
Refer to Table 3 in the label for the amounts of Azatrol EC Insecticide required to prepare spray concentrations of 0.25% to 1.70% for spray volumes of 1 gallon to 200 gallons.
