DIRECTIONS FOR USE
RESTRICTED USE PESTICIDE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
For resistance management, this product contains a Group 3A insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to this product and other Group 3A insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides is used repeatedly in the same fields. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed. To delay insecticide/acaricide resistance, take the following steps:
• Rotate the use of this product or other Group 3A insecticides within a growing season, or among growing seasons, with different groups that control the same pests. Avoid application of more than the maximum number and consecutive sprays of this product or other insecticides in the same group in a season.
• Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group that are equally effective on the target pest when such use is permitted. Do not rely on the same mixture repeatedly for the same pest population. Consider any known cross-resistance issues (for the targeted pests) between the individual components of a mixture. In addition, consider the following recommendations provided by the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee (IRAC):
• Individual insecticides selected for use in mixtures should be highly effective and be applied at the rates at which they are individually registered for use against the target species.
• Mixtures with components having the same IRAC mode of action classification are not recommended for insect resistance management.
• When using mixtures, consider any known cross-resistance issues between the individual components for the targeted pest(s).
• Mixtures become less effective if resistance is already developing to one or both active ingredients, but they may still provide pest management benefits.
• The insect resistance management benefits of an insecticide mixture are great- est if the two components have similar periods of residual insecticidal activity. Mixtures of insecticides with unequal periods of residual insecticide activity may offer an insect resistance management benefit only for the period where both insecticides are active.
• Adopt an integrated pest management program for insecticide use that includes scouting, uses historical information related to pesticide use, crop rotation, record keeping, and which considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.
• Monitor after application for unexpected target pest survival. If the level of survival suggests the presence of resistance, consult with your local university specialist or certified pest control advisor.
• Contact your local extension specialist or certified crop advisors for any additional
pesticide resistance-management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and pest problems in your area.
