8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A contact and ingested insecticide and repellent with good activity on caterpillars.

9. APPLICATION METHODS AND TIPS:

Do not spray areas foraged by bees for 10 days before flowering to petal fall.
Thorough spray coverage is essential.
Best results when used early as preventative treatment to stop the build up of large numbers of the pest.
The addition of 500 g of salt per 100 L of spray solution may improve the control of sucking insects.
Synthetic latex surfactants such as Bond improve control slightly under normal conditions and improve rainfastness and have maintained control levels with up to 50 mm rainfall after spraying.
Not compatible with alkaline solutions, Bordeaux mixture, lime sulphur.

10. ADJUVANTS, WETTERS, OILS:

Use a buffering agent if the water is alkaline.

11. EQUIPMENT:

Use a rotary atomizer e.g Mocronair for aerial applications.

19. PLANT BACK PERIODS or RECROPPING INTERVALS:

20. MODE OF ACTION:

A contact and ingested broad spectrum insecticide. Has repellent and anti-feeding action. Some insects will starve rather than eat treated plants. Non systemic. Stable in ultraviolet light which aids it persistence on foliage.
A group 3A, synthetic pyrethroid, voltage dependent sodium channel agonist.
Has a very quick knockdown action (within minutes of application).
