General Information

BRANDT INSECT BAIT is a corn derived, proteinaceous liquid that enhances the effectiveness of agricultural insecticides. The protein bait acts as a food attractant and its success in an IPM program is based on the immature female fruit flies’ need of a protein meal for developing mature eggs.

Read and follow the precautions, restrictions and recommendations on the labels of insecticides used with BRANDT INSECT BAIT. Use according to the most restrictive label directions for each product in any tank mix.

BRANDT INSECT BAIT may be used on agricultural, aquatic, forestry, turf and ornamental, industrial and non-cropland sites. NOT FOR AQUATIC USE IN WASHINGTON.

COMPATIBILITY: BRANDT INSECT BAIT is compatible with most insecticides. However, if the desired combination has not been previously used, a compatibility test is recommended. Using this product with copper compounds or shortly after an application of copper may reduce effectiveness.

MIXING: Shake well before using. Although this product may contain a small amount of suspended solids, they should not interfere with spray nozzle performance. Fill spray tank ½ full of water and begin agitation. Add pesticides as directed by label or in the following sequence and continue filling tank: (1) Dry flowables or water dispersing granules, (2) Wettable powders, (3) Flowables, (4) Solutions, (5) Emulsifiable concentrates. Add BRANDT INSECT BAIT last and continue agitation until spray solution is completely mixed. Continuous agitation of finished spray is recommended. If spray solution has been allowed to stand, thoroughly agitate and remix before application.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Specific use rates will vary with conditions of application such as water hardness, application method, equipment, spray droplet size, condition of foliage, etc. Also, higher rates than those below may be used if recommended by pesticide labeling. Follow pesticide label directions. However, do not add this product at a rate which exceeds 5% of the finished spray volume.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

AIR OR GROUND: Use with sufficient water for thorough coverage. Due to the attractant mode of action, overall coverage of the plant canopy is unnecessary and a ‘spot spraying technique’ is adequate. Bait spraying is most effective in ‘area’ treatment programs. It is ideal for medium to large fields and orchards or where adjacent properties use the technique.
