Keys to Success
To minimize risk of injury to plants, make applications prior to blooming or avoid blooms whenever possible. Apply in the coolest times of day and refer to the Pylon miticide-insecticide label to evaluate crop safety on any plants you may be treating.
Pylon miticide-insecticide is not ovicidal and so should be used in rotation with a registered ovicidal product specific for the pest when moderate to high populations of eggs are present. Applications should be made to the immature stages of insects and mites.
When target insect populations are high and potential for multiple generations exists, make a Pylon miticide- insecticide application at the high rate, then make a sequential application five to seven days later. Make only one sequential application at the five- to seven-day interval when necessary. See the label for additional instructions regarding resistance management.Ground ship onlyView more info
