Malice 75 WSP
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Some insects are known to develop resistance to insecticides after repeated use. As with any insecticide, the use of this product should conform to resistance management strategies established for the use area.
This product contains a Group 4A insecticide called imidacloprid. Insect biotypes with acquired or inherent tolerance to Group 4A products may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 4A products are used repeatedly as the predominant method of control for targeted species. This may eventually result in partial or total loss of control of those species by this product and to other Group 4A products.
The active ingredient in this product is a member of the neonicotinoid chemical group. Avoid using a block of more than three consecutive applications of this product and/or other Group 4A products having the same or similar mode of action. Following a neonicotinoid block of treatments, Loveland Products, Inc. strongly encourages the rotation to a block of applications with effective products of a different mode before using additional applications of neonicotinoid products. Using a block rotation or windowed approach, along with other IPM practices, is considered an effective use strategy for preventing or delaying an insect pest’s ability to develop resistance to this class of chemistry.
Foliar applications of this product or other Group 4A products from the neonicotinoid chemical class should not be used on crops previously treated with a long residual, soil-applied products from the neonicotinoid chemical class. Other Group 4A, neonicotinoid products used as foliar treatments include: Actara, Assail, Calypso, Centric, Intruder, Leverage , Provado, and Trimax. Other 4A Group, neonicotinoid products used as soil treatment include: Admire and Platinum. Contact your local extension specialist, certified crop advisor and/or product manufacturer for additional insect resistance management recommendations. Also, for more information on Insect Resistance Management (IRM), visit the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC) on the web at http://irac-online.org/.
• DO NOT apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
• Keep children and pets off treated areas until dry.
• DO NOT apply by air except for uses permitting aerial application in the “TREE, BRUSH AND VINE CROPS” section.
• DO NOT graze treated areas or use clippings from treated areas for feed or forage.
• DO NOT apply this product to soils that are waterlogged or saturated and avoid runoff or puddling of irrigation water following application.
• DO NOT allow leechate to run out for the first 10 days after application or reduced efficacy may result.
• Regardless of formulation or method of application, apply no more than 0.5 pounds active ingredient imidacloprid per acre per year, including seed treatment, soil, and foliar uses, unless specified within a crop-specific application section for a given crop.
Apply as a directed or broadcast foliar spray using adequate spray volumes, properly calibrated application equipment and spray adjuvant (if necessary) to obtain thorough coverage. Thorough coverage of the foliage (without runoff) is necessary. Loss of insect control or delay in onset of activity may result if there is not adequate coverage and retention of this product on leaves and fruit. Except where otherwise specified, this product may be applied using properly calibrated ground and/or aerial application equipment using a minimum spray volume of 10.0 gallons per acre by ground application and 5.0 gallons per acre through aerial equipment. Unless allowed under state-specific 24(c) labeling, do not use this product on crops grown for production of true seed intended for private or commercial planting. Your Cooperative Extension Service, PCAs, consultants or local Loveland Products, Inc. representatives can provide additional information on this product’s uses with these crops.
• Add a portion of the required amount of water to the spray tank and begin agitation.
• Add the specified amount of this product.
• Fill the tank with the remaining water needed, being sure to maintain sufficient agitation during both mixing and application.
• If tank mixing this product with other pesticides and/or fertilizer solutions, please refer to the Compatibility Testing Instructions below. When tank mixing this product with other pesticides, prepare the tank mixture as specified above and follow the Mixing Order below.
Add this product first and allow the PVA packets to dissolve. Add any other wettable powders or wettable granules, flowables (suspension concentrates) second, and emulsifiable concentrates last. Maintain agitation as each component is added and do not add an additional component until the previous one is thoroughly mixed. A fertilizer pesticide compatibility agent may be needed if a fertilizer solution is added to the mix. To ensure uniformity of the spray mixture, be sure to maintain constant agitation during both mixing and application.
Compatibility Testing Instructions
Do not use PVA packets in a tank-mix with products that contain boron or release free chlorine. The resultant reaction of PVA and boron or free chlorine is a plastic that is not soluble in water or solvents. For further information, contact your local Loveland Products, Inc. representative.
Conduct the following test for compatibility of the intended tank mixture before adding this product to the spray or mix tank:
1. In a pint or quart jar, add proportionate amounts of each ingredient in the appropriate order.
2.Cap and shake for 5 minutes.
3.Let set for 5 minutes.
4.Observe the jar for signs indicating an incompatible mixture that should not be used such as poor mixing or the formation of precipitates that do not readily re-disperse.
As soon as practical following the last application, treated areas may be replanted with any crop specified on an imidacloprid label, or any crop for which a tolerance exists for the active ingredient. For crops not listed on an imidacloprid label, or for crops for which no tolerances for the active ingredient have been established, a 12-month plant-back interval must be observed. Cover crops for soil building or erosion control may be planted at any time, but do not graze or harvest for food or feed
