General Information

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

DO NOT apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.

Shake well before using.

DO NOT apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

APPLICATION TO TURFGRASS

Use this product for the control of soil inhabiting pests of turfgrass, such as Northern & Southern masked chafers, Cyclocephala borealis, C. immaculata, and/or C. lurida; Asiatic garden beetle, Maladera castanea; European chafer, Rhizotroqus majalis; Green June beetle, Cotinis nitida; May or June beetle, Phyllophaga spp.; Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica; Oriental beetle, Anomala orientalis; Billbugs, Sphenophorus spp.; Annual bluegrass weevil, Listronotus spp.; Black turfgrass ataenius, Ataenius spretulus and Aphodius spp.; European crane fly, Tipula paludosa; and mole crickets, Scapteriscus spp. Use this product for suppression of cutworms and chinch bugs. Use as directed on turfgrass in sites such as home lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields and sod farms.

The active ingredient in this product has sufficient residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity of the target pests. Base the need for an application on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Make applications prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

DO NOT make applications when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Adequate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when these conditions exist. The treated turf area must be in such a condition that the rainfall or irrigation will penetrate vertically in the soil profile. Applications cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pints (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS

Use this product on ornamentals in commercial and residential landscapes and interior plantscapes. It is a systemic product and will be translocated upward into the plant system from root uptake. Apply this product to areas where the growing portion of the target plant can absorb the active ingredient. The addition of a nitrogen containing fertilizer, where applicable, into the solution has been shown to enhance the uptake of the active ingredient. Application can be made by foliar application or soil applications; including soil injection, drenches, and broadcast sprays. Foliar applications offer locally systemic activity against insect pests.

When making soil applications to plants with woody stems, systemic activity will be delayed until the active ingredient is translocated throughout the plant. In some cases, this translocation delay could take 60 days or longer. For this reason, applications must be made prior to anticipated pest infestation to achieve control.

For outdoor ornamentals, applications cannot exceed a total of 25.6 fluid ounces (1.6 pints) (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

Ant Management Programs

Use this product to control aphids, scale insects, mealybugs and other sucking pests on ornamentals to limit the honeydew available as a food source for ant populations. Applications can then be supplemented with residual sprays, bait placements or other ant control tactics to further reduce the pest population.

Application Methods

Mix product with the required amount of water and apply as desired dependent upon the selected use pattern.

When making foliar applications on hard-to-wet foliage such as holly, pine, or ivy, the addition of a spreader/sticker will improve coverage. If concentrate or mist type spray equipment is used, apply an equivalent amount of product on the area sprayed, as would be used in a dilute application.

This insecticide has been found to be compatible with commonly used fungicides, miticides, liquid fertilizers, and other commonly used insecticides. The physical compatibility of this product may vary with different sources of pesticide products and local cultural practices. Prepare, on a small scale (pint or quart jar), any tank mixture which has not been previously tested by using the proper proportions of pesticides and water to ensure the physical compatibility of the mixture.

DO NOT apply through any irrigation system.

FLOWERS & GROUNDCOVERS

Apply as a broadcast treatment and incorporate into the soil before planting or apply after plants are established. Irrigate immediately following application to established plants.

Method
Restricted Entry Interval

12 hours

Exception: If the product is applied by drenching, the Worker Protection Standard, under certain circumstances, allows workers to enter the treated area if there will be no contact with anything that has been treated.
