Directions For Use

Malathion 500 Emulsifiable Concentrate Insecticide is a general purpose insecticide, which can be used on vegetables, field crops, livestock and in farm buildings. The product works best when used at temperatures above 20°C. On any crop, use sufficient water to obtain good coverage of all the foliage. Consult the local Agriculture Extension Services for timing of sprays to obtain the best results.

The number in brackets after each crop is the pre harvest spray interval. For example, Wheat (7). Do not harvest wheat within 7 days of spraying.

Section 7 Mixing And Application Instructions

1. Fill tank half full with water. Start agitation. 2. Add required Malathion 500. 3. Complete filling of spray tank with water. 4. Apply a minimum of 200 Litres of spray per hectare for ground application and sufficient volume for uniform application. Higher volumes may be required on larger plants, but avoid run-off, for ground boom application. For vegetable crops and ornamentals, apply sufficient water for uniform, thorough coverage. Consult provincial extension services for detailed spray application volumes as required. 5. Do not exceed 275 kPa, pressure for ground boom application.

Use Precautions for Aerial Application (to cereal crops, canola (rapeseed), lentils, sweet clover, alfalfa and flax only): Apply only by fixed-wing or rotary aircraft equipment which has been functionally and operationally calibrated for the atmospheric conditions of the area and the application rates and conditions of the label. Label rates, conditions and precautions are product specific. Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. Apply only at the rate recommended for aerial application on the label. Where no rate for aerial application appears for the specific use, this product cannot be applied by any type of aerial equipment. Ensure uniform application. To avoid streaked, uneven or overlapped application, use appropriate marking devices. Do not use human flaggers.

Use Precautions: Apply only when meteorological conditions at the treatment site allow for complete and even crop coverage. Apply only under conditions of good practice specific to aerial application as outlined in the Basic Knowledge Requirements for Pesticide Education in Canada: Applicator Core and Aerial Module, developed by CAPCO. Do not apply to any body of water. Avoid drifting of spray onto any body of water or other non-target areas. Specified buffer zones should be observed. Coarse sprays are less likely to drift, therefore, avoid combinations of pressure and nozzle type that will result in fine particles (mist). Do not angle nozzles forward into the airstream and do not increase spray volume by increasing nozzle pressure. Do not apply during periods of dead calm or when wind velocity and direction pose a risk of spray drift. Do not spray when the wind is blowing towards a nearby sensitive crop, garden, terrestrial habitat (such as shelter-belt) or aquatic habitat.

Operator Precautions: Do not allow the pilot to mix chemicals to be loaded onto the aircraft. Loading of premixed chemicals with a closed system is permitted. It is desirable that the pilot have communication capabilities at each treatment site at the time of application. The field crew and the mixer/loaders must wear chemical resistant gloves, coveralls and goggles or face shield during mixing/loading, cleanup and repair. Follow the more stringent label precautions in cases where the operator precautions exceed the generic label recommendations on the existing ground boom label. All personnel on the job site must wash hands and face thoroughly before eating and drinking. Protective clothing, aircraft cockpit and vehicle cabs must be decontaminated regularly.

Product Specific Precautions: Read and understand the entire label before opening this product. If you have questions, call the manufacturer at (204) 233-3461 or obtain technical advice from the distributor or your provincial agriculture representative. Application of this specific product must meet and/or conform to the following: Volume: Apply the recommended rate in a minimum spray volume of 30 litres per hectare. Use boom pressure of 235 kPa or less. Avoid placing nozzles where spray will enter wing tip vortices. Buffer zones: Appropriate buffer zones should be established between treatment areas and aquatic systems and treatment areas and significant wildlife habitat.

Section 8 Precautions

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Hazardous if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Avoid breathing spray mist or dust. Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing. Wash exposed skin areas thoroughly with soap and water after working with Malathion. Clean contaminated clothing before re-use. Do not contaminate feed or foodstuffs. Do not treat dairy barns. Do not apply to pastures while occupied by dairy animals. Do not treat any plants while in bloom. Avoid contaminating any body of water. Wash treated food before eating. Do not apply to eyes or ears (except in ointment form) or nose of any animal. Do not store product near food, feed, fertilizers, seed, and like commodities. Highly toxic to fish and bees. Emulsifiable concentrate formulations may cause injury to young cucurbits and ornamentals (crassula; holly; African violet; petunia; sabina and canaerti junipers; Boston, maidenhair and pteris ferns).

If this pest control is to be used on a commodity that may be exported to the U.S. and you require information on acceptable residue levels in the U.S., visit CropLife Canada’s web-site at www.croplife.ca.

Environmental Precautions: This product contains a petroleum distillate which is moderately to highly toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid contamination of aquatic systems during application. Do not contaminate these systems through direct application, disposal of waste or cleaning equipment.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT: For resistance management, please note that Malathion 500 Emulsifiable Concentrate Insecticide contains a Group 1B insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Malathion 500 Emulsifiable Concentrate Insecticide and other Group 1B insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly in the same fields. Other resistance mechanisms that are not linked to site of action but are specific for individual chemicals, such as enhanced metabolism, may also exist. Appropriate resistance-management strategies should be followed.

To delay insecticide resistance: Where possible, rotate the use of Malathion 500 Emulsifiable Concentrate Insecticide or other Group 1B insecticides with different groups that control the same pests in a field. Use tank mixtures with insecticides from a different group when such use is permitted. Insecticide use should be based on an IPM program that includes scouting, record keeping, and considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices. Monitor treated pest populations for resistance development. 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. For further information or to report suspected resistance contact Interprovincial Cooperatives Ltd. at (204) 233-3461.

GO TO SECTION 9

Section 9 First Aid

In case of exposure to Malathion, move patient from area and remove all contaminated clothing. Wash all exposed skin with soap and water. If in eyes, flush with water.

DANGER-POISON - This product contains petroleum distillates. If ingested do not induce vomiting. If patient is unconscious give him air. Obtain medical attention immediately, or contact a poison control centre. Take container, label or product name and Pest Control Product Registration Number with you when seeking medical attention.
