MIXING AND APPLICATION: This product may be mixed with water or oil and applied by air or ground equipment. Thorough coverage with the chemical is essential for maximum effectiveness.

Turf Application: Apply by tractor-mounted boom-spray or knapsack spray. Apply in a minimum of 200 L water/ha and preferably in 400 L water/ha to ensure good penetration of turf thatch. Apply to sports fields, commercial, and residential lawns when not in use by the public. Ensure the spray has dried before allowing workers/public to re-enter the treated area.

Water Application: Apply 50 to 200 L/ha spray volume for ground application and a minimum of 20 L/ha for aircraft application. Ensure thorough coverage. Spray in crosswinds. DO NOT spray in calms or when wind is light and variable in direction unless smoke indicators show spray is entering the crop uniformly. DO NOT mix with hard water. Add a non-ionic wetting agent at label rates for improved coverage.

Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Application: Apply in a minimum of 1.5 L spray volume/ha using equipment that delivers a droplet size of approximately 80-100 microns. Ensure thorough coverage. Spray in crosswinds. DO NOT spray in calms or when wind is light and variable in direction unless smoke indicators show spray is entering the crop uniformly.

PRECAUTION STATEMENTS: DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray has dried.

INSECTICIDE RESISTANCE WARNING For insecticide resistance management, Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally-occurring insect biotypes resistant to Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide and other Group 3A insecticides may exist. The effectiveness of Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT: Follow the guidelines for insecticide resistance management issued by relevant state agricultural authorities. Application to Helicoverpa armigera larvae longer than 5 mm may not only be ineffective but may increase the level of synthetic pyrethroid resistance.

COMPATIBILITY: This product is compatible with specific non-aqueous ULV formulations of other insecticides. DO NOT mix Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide with wettable powders BEFORE addition to the spray tank.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT: Toxic to mammals. Very toxic to aquatic life. DO NOT contaminate wetlands or watercourses with this product or used containers.

PROTECTION OF CROPS, NATIVE AND OTHER NON-TARGET PLANTS: DO NOT apply under conditions that may cause spray to drift onto nearby susceptible plants/crops or pastures.

PROTECTION OF HONEY BEES AND OTHER INSECT POLLINATORS: Highly toxic to bees. DO NOT apply to crops from the onset of flowering until flowering is complete. Before spraying, notify beekeepers to move hives to a safe location.

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT: Toxic to beneficial arthropods. Minimize spray drift to reduce harmful effects on beneficial arthropods in non-crop areas.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL: Store in a cool, well-ventilated area. Triple rinse containers before disposal. DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, return clean containers to the recycler or designated collection point.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS: Harmful if swallowed. May irritate the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. DO NOT inhale spray mist. Wear appropriate protective clothing during preparation and application. Wash hands, arms, and face thoroughly after use.
