**PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS**

Do not combine emulsifiable liquids with wettable powders in the same spray tank unless previous use of the materials being combined has proven them to be physically compatible. Application may not be made around bodies of water where fish or shellfish are grown and/or harvested commercially.

All ULV formulations must be packaged in closed mixing and loading systems.

Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.

For proper mixing, fill the spray tank at least 3/4 full with water before Malathion 5 EC formulation is added. Mechanical agitation or recirculation through the pump by-pass to the tank is usually sufficient for maintaining a good dispersion. Rinse empty container with water and drain into spray tank - repeat twice more. Consult your State Experiment Station as to the timing of applications.

Buffer Zones For Aerial Application

When making a Non-ULV application with aerial application equipment, a minimum buffer zone of 25 feet must be maintained along any water body.

When making a ULV application with aerial application equipment, a minimum buffer zone of 50 feet must be maintained along any water body.
