AKARI 5SC miticide/insecticide is used for the control of leafhoppers, mealybugs, mites, psylla, psyllids, and whiteflies. AKARI 5SC miticide/insecticide stops mite feeding immediately after application. AKARI 5SC miticide/insecticide controls all motile stages of mites by inhibiting cellular respiration in the mitochondrion of cells which results in rapid cessation of all biological activities including feeding and reproduction. Mortality of mites can be observed within 3 to 7 days after intoxication. AKARI 5SC miticide/insecticide works primarily through contact action, so thorough spray coverage is necessary. Mix with sufficient water and apply as a foliar spray to obtain uniform coverage. Dense foliage or excessive growth will often prevent adequate coverage; adjust spray volumes accordingly. Treat plants when pests are immature or at a susceptible stage and populations are building, before crop damage occurs.

When thorough coverage is a concern, use a spray adjuvant to maximize uniformity of coverage and performance of Akari 5SC miticide/insecticide. Use a non-ionic activator type wetting, spreading or penetrating adjuvant or horticultural spray oil adjuvant. Do not use a dormant oil, or binder or sticker-type adjuvant. Non-ionic adjuvants (NIS) should contain at least 75% surfactant. Crop oil concentrates (COC), methylated seed or vegetable oils (MSO), organosilicone products (OS), or blends of these adjuvants should contain at least 15% emulsifier/surfactant. Check compatibility of any adjuvant used with Akari 5SC miticide/insecticide before using. Follow the Directions for Use on each adjuvant product label for rates of use and use restrictions.

x Make applications immediately after the spray solution is prepared.
x Apply with properly calibrated spray equipment.
x Apply by ground or air using the recommended water spray volume found in the Directions for Use section of this label.
x For aerial equipment, use larger droplet size (greater than 200 microns).
x Thorough spray coverage is essential for mite and insect control.
x For best results, apply when pest populations are beginning to build, before reaching economic thresholds. Consult your local agricultural advisor or state cooperative extension service for further information.
x Do not apply within 75 feet of fish-bearing waters.
x Do not use products with the same mode of action in consecutive applications.
x Do not plant rotational crops other than those listed on this label for 30 days following the last application of this product.
x Do not apply through any type of irrigation system.
x Do not use in greenhouse structures.
x Do not apply by Alternate Row Middle (ARM) spray method.

AKARI 5SC miticide/insecticide Alone: Shake well before using. Begin with clean equipment. Fill spray tank with ¾ of the amount of water needed for the intended application and then turn on agitation. Pour specified amount of product on the surface of the water in the spray tank. Add the balance of the water to the spray tank with agitation running. Keep agitation running during filling and spraying operations. If spraying must be stopped before emptying the sprayer, resume agitation before spraying the remainder of the load. Mix only as much spray solution as can be sprayed within four hours. Storage and use of the previous day’s spray mix may result in reduced activity. AKARI 5SC miticide/insecticide Tank Mixtures: Begin with clean equipment. Fill spray tank with ¾ of the amount of water needed for the intended application and turn on agitation. If using a buffering agent, add after filling the tank with ¾ amount of water. Add the recommended amount of tankmix products in the following order while maintaining agitation:
1) products in water-soluble packets
2) wettable powders
3) water-dispersible granulars and/or soluble powders
4) flowable liquids (including Akari 5SC miticide/insecticide)
5) emulsifiable concentrates
6) adjuvants and/or oils
