GENERAL PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS:

● 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.

● Not for use in outdoor metered release devices.

● Keep unprotected persons out of treated areas until sprays have dried.

● Allow spray to dry before allowing adults, children or pets on treated areas.

● Do not wet plants to the point of runoff or drip.

● Do not apply more than 10 times per season.

● Do not reapply within 3 days except under extreme pest pressure.

● In case of extreme pest pressure, do not reapply within 24 hours.

● For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.

● Not for use in outdoor residential misting systems.

● Do not apply when food, feed, and/or water is present.

● Not for indoor use except in greenhouses.

PESTICIDE RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT

PyGanic® Specialty contains a Group 3A insecticide. Insect biotypes with acquired resistance to Group 3A may eventually dominate the insect population if Group 3A insecticides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by PyGanic® Specialty or other Group 3A insecticides.

To delay insecticide resistance consider:

● Avoiding the consecutive use of PyGanic® Specialty or other Group 3A insecticides that have a similar target site of action, on the same insect species.

● Using tank mixtures or premixes with insecticides from a different target site of action Group as long as the involved products are all registered for the same use and have different sites of action.

● Basing insecticide use on a comprehensive IPM program.

● Monitoring treated insect population for loss of field efficacy.

● Contacting your local extension specialist, certified crop advisors, and/or manufacturer for insecticide resistance management and/or IPM recommendations for the specific site and resistance pest problems.

GENERAL USE DIRECTIONS:

IMPORTANT: It is recommended that the final spray mix be buffered to a pH of 5.5-7.0. Outside of this range pyrethrins can degrade and the product will lose effectiveness.

To avoid possible harm to honey bees and other beneficial insects, it is advisable to apply when the non-target insects are least active.

Pyrethrins degrade rapidly in sunlight. To ensure the best performance, coverage is key. Use spray equipment that will provide the best coverage and direct contact with as many insects as possible.

Kills only at time of application. Listed insect pests must be directly contacted to be effective.

TANK MIX: This product may be tank mixed with other insecticides, acaricides, fungicides, adjuvants, and wetting agents. This application should conform to accepted use precautions and directions for both products. Tank mix applications must be made in accordance with the more restrictive of label limitations and precautions. No label application rates may be exceeded. This product cannot be mixed with any product with label prohibitions against such mixing.

Prior to tank mixing, a compatibility test should be conducted using the proper proportions of products and water to ensure the physical compatibility of the mixture.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Plant safety is an important consideration when using insecticides in a greenhouse. However, it is not possible to evaluate the phytotoxicity of PyGanic® Specialty on numerous plant varieties that may react differently to insecticides in different growth stages or under varying environmental conditions. Before making widespread applications of PyGanic® Specialty or tank mix combinations, treat a limited number of plants and observe for phytotoxicity over a 10-day period.

DIRECTIONS FOR APPLICATION THROUGH IRRIGATION SYSTEMS (CHEMIGATION):

Apply this product only through sprinkler (including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel) roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, or hand move) irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system.

Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from non-uniform distribution of treated water.

If you have questions about calibration, you should contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts.

Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place.

A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for the operation or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.

The system must contain a functional check valve, vacuum relief valve, and low-pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water source contamination from backflow. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump. The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the pump motor stops. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure valve, which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected.

Systems must be a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.

Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

Constant agitation must be maintained in the chemical supply tank during the entire period of insecticide application. Greater accuracy in calibration and distribution will be achieved by injecting a larger volume of more dilute suspension per unit of time.

GROWING CROPS (IN GREENHOUSES AND NURSERIES):

Apply 4.5 to 17 fluid ounces per acre by ground equipment in sufficient water for thorough coverage. This product may be applied by air at the rate of 4.5 to 17 fluid ounces per acre in a minimum of 2 gallons of water per acre for field crops and in a minimum of 10 gallons of water per acre for orchard crops. Mix only enough for immediate use. Spraying should begin when insects first appear. Do not wait until plants are heavily infested. Repeat as needed but not more than once daily.

PyGanic® Specialty may be used on most crops because its active ingredient is exempt from tolerances when applied to growing crops. The crop-grouping scheme used on the label was devised by the Environmental Protection Agency to expedite minor use pesticide registration. Each crop grouping on the label contains the phrase “including, but not limited to,” and then lists a number of crops in each group. This wording allows the use of PyGanic® Specialty on crops that may not be specifically listed on the label (providing that the group to which the crop belongs is listed).
