It works quickly and effectively to coat and suffocate pests on contact and continues to act as a repellent after the contacted insects have died. This dual mode of action provides control for all stages of insect development.

For use to control mites, soft bodied insects and sucking insects on amenity/ornamental plants and plants/crops grown for their reproductive and/or vegetative components used for feed, food, fuel, fiber and medicinal purposes.
This Product Controls These Pests or Diseases: Mites and soft bodied, piercing and sucking insect pests such as Aphids (Aphidoidea), Beetles (Coleoptera), Caterpillars (Lepidoptera), Fly Maggots (Diptera), Leafhoppers (Cicadellidae), Leafminers, Mealybugs (Pseudococcidae), Psyllids (Psyllidae), Scale – crawler stage, Thrips (Thysanoptera), Whiteflies (Aleyrodoidea) and Liverworts (Marchantiophyta).
Mixing Instructions: The use of adjuvants (spreaders and/or penetrants) is highly recommended for improving performance.
- Fill spray tank ½ full with intended amount of water (> 45°F).
- Add this product at recommended rate, then other products as desired, and continue filling with water. In areas with hard water (> 200 ppm), addition of a water softener is recommended before adding this product to the spray tank.
- Maintain agitation while mixing and during application for best results.
- Always clean tank, pump and lines thoroughly with water after use.
Begin spraying when insects first appear; do not wait until plants are heavily infested. Repeat as needed (with a 5 day minimum interval) to maintain desired level of control. There are no restrictions on the number of applications per season. Do not apply when temperatures exceed 90°F.
- Ground Spray: Spray-to-wet applications of this product may be made with standard field sprayers and backpack or other hand-held sprayers.
- Aerial Spray: Please see manufacturer's label under the DOCS tab for complete instructions.
- Drip Irrigation: For soil inhabiting insects and insect stages, use 2-4 pints per acre of plant bed in 2-3 applications over a 7-14 day schedule. Set emitter spacing and line pressure to give best coverage and reduce leaching.
For best results, spray coverage should be uniform and complete. Spray droplet size should be adjusted to maximize coverage, minimize drift, and allow direct contact with as many insects as possible. Use lower rates to control light to moderate insect populations and higher rates for heavy infestations. Apply to crops at any time up to and including the day of harvest.
Environment: For use outdoors and indoors in greenhouses, nurseries, interior plantscapes, lath and shadehouses, commercial, industrial, recreational and residential landscapes, golf courses, cemeteries, parks, sports fields, lawns, turfgrass and inside/outside of mushroom houses.
