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 MONTEREY INSECT BAIT. Use according to the most restrictive label directions for each product in any tank mix.

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 the product at a rate which exceeds 5% of the finished spray volume.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions


- Use 2-8 pints per acre 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.
