APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE is a specific miticide which acts primarily as an ovicide but has an effect on young motile stages. Duration of residual activity on target mites, especially when applied between delayed dormant and first cover, depends upon age structure of treated mite populations, species of mite, and mite predator levels.
CAUTION: Do not graze the treated crops or the treated area; there are not sufficient data available to support such use.
DO NOT MAKE MORE THAN ONE APPLICATION OF APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE PER SEASON.
APPLES AND PEARS
European red mite Panonychus ulmi, Two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae, McDaniel spider mite Tetranychus mcdanieli
Apply with ground equipment using either dilute or concentrate sprays. Apply 300–600 mL APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE per hectare. When high dilution rate is used (3800 litres or more of water) use no less than 75 mL of APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE per 950 litres of spray. Use sufficient volume of water to obtain complete coverage but not less than 475 litres per hectare. Do not use less than 300 mL of APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE per hectare in concentrate sprays. APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE works best applied to eggs or young motile stages. It is not effective against adults.
APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE may be applied any time from delayed dormant through first cover. Best results in early season will be obtained if treatments are made at petal fall before mites hatch. Do not apply after first cover (provided first cover is not more than 14 days after petal fall.)
APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE may be applied early season (after delayed dormant) through to summer. Apply at first sign of mite activity when mite populations are predominantly in the egg stage, with few early motiles (less than 3 per leaf). Do not apply within 21 days of harvest.
Factors which may warrant consideration of rates higher than 300 mL APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE per hectare include:
1. Earliest seasonal timings for blocks with high overwintering European red mite egg populations.
2. When mite predator populations are low.
3. To ensure adequate coverage of full size standard trees and/or trees with heavy leaf densities.
PEACHES AND NECTARINES
Two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae,, European red mite Panonychus ulmi,
Apply with ground equipment using air assist sprayer. Apply 300 mL APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE per hectare. Use sufficient volume of water to obtain complete coverage but not less than 475 litres per hectare. APOLLO® SC may be applied early season (after delayed dormant) through to 14 days after petal fall. Apply at first sign of mite activity when mite populations are predominantly in the egg stage, with few active, young motiles present. Do not apply within 21 days of harvest.
RASPBERRIES AND STRAWBERRIES
Two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae, Apply at a rate of 500 mL/ha at first sign of mite activity. Apply with ground equipment using 500-1000 litres of water per hectare. Do not apply within 15 days of harvest.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Use on Outdoor Deciduous Nursery Stock:
Two-Spotted Spider Mite (Tetranychus urticae) on outdoor deciduous nursery stock (including Malus, Pyrus, Rosa, Clematis, Crataegus, Hedera, Potentilla, Ribes, Ulmus, Caragana, Euonymus, Salix, Prunus and herbaceous perennials)
APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE is recommended at a concentration of 80 mL product per hectare (40 g a.i./ha) in 1000 litres of spray. If adequate spray coverage of plant canopy requires less solution per hectare, the spray volume should be adjusted accordingly while using the same spray concentration (ratio of millilitres of product to litres of water). The application rate of 80 mL product/ha should not be exceeded. Do not make more than one application of Apollo® SC Ovacidal Miticide per season.
Method of application:
Apply as a dilute spray using ground application equipment.
Timing of application:
APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE works best applied to eggs or young motile stages. It is not effective against adults.
APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE should be applied at the first sign of mite activity or egg laying. Apply when mite populations are predominately in the egg stage, with few active, young motiles present.
Do not enter or allow worker entry to treated areas during restricted entry interval (REI) of 12 hours
MANAGING MITE RESISTANCE
Overuse, misuse, and/or repeated use of miticides with a similar mode of action may select for resistant strains of mites. For good resistance management practices, Makhteshim-Agan of North America Inc. recommends that APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE be applied only once per year. If additional miticide applications are neededduring any one season, use a miticide with a different mode of action. Contact local agricultural authorities for further information regarding use of APOLLO® SC OVACIDAL MITICIDE in an overall pest management strategy.
