MATADOR 120EC is a photostable, synthetic pyrethroid insecticide. It is a fast acting stomach and contact insecticide effective against a broad spectrum of foliar pests. It has no fumigant or systemic activity. Best results will be obtained with MATADOR 120EC when applied against the early development stages of the pest as determined by regular monitoring.

Control of some insect species with pyrethroid insecticides decreases as temperature rises. For best results, apply MATADOR 120EC during the early morning before temperatures rise, and during the evening, past the heat of the day. Use sufficient water for thorough coverage, applied by ground sprayer.As this product is not registered for the control of pests in aquatic systems, DO NOT use to control aquatic pests.
