COTTON - BEET ARMYWORM, CARMINE SPIDER MITE, ETC.
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.
