8. GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

A contact and ingested insecticide and repellent. Controls flies and some aphids also.

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.
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 miscible sulphur.
