Repeated use of certain insecticides may create resistance in some target pests, resulting in a decrease of control. Bifenthrin 2EC AG should be used in accordance with treatment area-appropriate strategies for resistance management. For further information regarding resistance management strategies for your treatment area, consult local or state pest management authorities.
If you are unable to attain adequate control of a target pest and this loss of control cannot be explained by misapplication or weather extremes, it is possible that resistance has developed within the target population. If this appears to have occurred, promptly seek advice from your pest management advisor or company representation regarding alternative control techniques.
The timing of application, infestation levels and field scouting will impact what application rate should be used:
For Light – Moderate Pest Pressure: use lower rates.
For Mite Control, Heavy Pest Pressure or applications in arid climates: use higher rates.
To prevent unwanted exposure to bodies of water, maintain a 10 foot-wide non-cultivated vegetative strip filter.

Spring is the peak time for Diaprepes root weevil to appear. Certain weather conditions may also cause a minor appearance of Diaprepes root weevil in the fall.
If weather conditions in the area where the citrus grove is to be treated contribute to primary emergence of Diaprepes root weevil in the Spring, you should use 32 fluid ounces of formulated product in order to obtain the most effective control.
If weather conditions in the area where the citrus grove is to be treated contribute to more than one pest emergence peak, you may apply 16 fluid ounces of formulated product during early season; you may also apply 16 fluid ounces of formulated product later in the season.
If use of BIFENTHRIN 2EC AG does not adequately control emergence, you may need to use other strategies, including, for example, foliar adult control or soil larvae control, such as nematodes. You should contact your state or local agricultural Extension Specialist for guidance.
