APPLICATION RATES AND USE

Always refer to full label instructions before use. The use of adjuvants and oils is highly recommended to promote adhesion on hydrophobic leaves and improve atomization. Use lower rates for light to moderate infestations and higher rates for heavy infestations. Repeat application after heavy rain to maintain the desired level of control. Full leaf coverage is essential for effective insect control.

ApplicationApplication rate per acre
Tank-mix3 – 10 lbs
Stand-alone Treatment6 – 55 lbs

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Contact with an insect pest or mite results in the static transfer of a few particles of the active. These particles absorb the protective lipid layer necessary for the insect’s survival. As a result, the insect will dehydrate.
