General Information

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

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.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

The maximum rate on turfgrass of Azatrol EC Insecticide is 57.0 fl. oz. of product per acre per application or 1.3 fl. oz. product per 1,000 sq. ft. per application. Apply at a rate up to 57 fl. oz. of product per acre. Use the higher rate specified on the label for moderate to heavy infestations.

Irrigation:

Avoid (delay or postpone) irrigation for 12-24 hours after application of this product.

Mowing:

Avoid (delay or postpone) mowing of the treated area for 12-24 hours after treatment.

Degree day and plant phenology models can assist in developing the appropriate application schedule for the target pests. Consult your state university or local Cooperative Extension Service office for specific pest control application timing in your area.

Azatrol EC Insecticide can be tank mixed with other insecticide/miticides if a broader spectrum of pest control is required. Observe all precautionary statements and follow all label directions of companion product(s).
