Read and follow ALL label directions when using this product.

PESTICIDE RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT

For resistance-management, Sumari® Insecticide contains both a Group 4A and 7C insecticides. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Sumari Insecticide and other Group 4A and 7C insecticides. The resistant individuals may dominate the insect population if this group of insecticides are used repeatedly at the same use sites. Appropriate resistance management strategies should be followed.

To delay insecticide resistance, consider:

● Rotate the use of Sumari Insecticide or other group 4A and 7C insecticides.

● Avoiding the consecutive use of Sumari Insecticide or other Group 4A and 7C insecticides that have a similar target site of action, on the same insect species.

● Basing insecticide use on a comprehensive IPM program.

● Monitor after application for unexpected target pest survival or unexpected adult emergence. If the levels suggest the presence of resistance, consult with your local university specialist.

● Adopt an integrated pest management program for insecticide use that includes scouting, uses historical information related to pesticide use, record keeping and which considers cultural, biological and other chemical control practices.

● 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 problem.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS

This product is toxic to aquatic organisms, including fish and invertebrates. To protect the environment, do not allow pesticide to enter or run off into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutter or surface waters. Applying this product in calm weather when rain is not predicted for the next 24 hours will help to ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash pesticide off the treatment area. Rinsing application equipment over the treated area will help avoid runoff to water bodies or drainage systems. Drift and runoff may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in neighboring areas. Do not apply where runoff is likely to occur.

This product is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment on blooming crops or weeds. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops or weeds while bees are actively foraging in the treatment area.

Do not apply directly to water, to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwaters or rinsate.

PROTECTION OF POLLINATORS

APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS EXIST FOR THIS PRODUCT BECAUSE OF RISK TO BEES AND OTHER INSECT POLLINATORS. FOLLOW APPLICATION RESTRICTIONS FOUND IN THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE TO PROTECT POLLINATORS.

Look for the bee hazard icon in the Directions for Use for each application site for specific use restrictions and instructions to protect bees and other insect pollinators.

This product can kill bees and other insect pollinators

Bees and other insect pollinators will forage on plants when they flower, shed pollen, or produce nectar.

Bees and other insect pollinators can be exposed to this pesticide from:

● Direct contact during foliar applications, or contact with residues on plant surfaces after foliar applications

● Ingestion of residues in nectar and pollen when the pesticide is applied as a seed treatment, soil, tree injection, as well as foliar applications.

When using this product, take steps to:

● Minimize exposure of this product to bees and other insect pollinators when they are foraging on pollinator attractive plants around the application site.

● Minimize drift of this product on to beehives or to off-site pollinator attractive habitat. Drift of this product onto beehives or off-site to pollinator attractive habitat can result in bee kills.

Information on protecting bees and other insect pollinators may be found at the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship website at:

http://pesticidestewardship.org/PollinatorProtection/Pages/default.aspx.

Pesticide incidents (for example, bee kills) should immediately be reported to the state/tribal lead agency. For contact information for your state, go to: www.aapco.org.
