bifenazate (Acramite) 2792525851 g344 g12 h7Do not apply more than once/season. Residual control: 21 days.
Notes: Not all stone fruit varieties have been tested for tolerance to PureSpray Green Oil 13E. It is therefore important to limit application to a small area of each variety to confirm tolerance prior to adoption as a general field practice.
Notes: The presence and number of predatory mites should first be determined before spraying. Apply the products in sufficient water to ensure thorough and uniform coverage.

European Earwig Notes: See the description of earwigs for management options including baiting and trapping.
Shothole Borer Notes: There are currently no registered products for controlling shothole beetles on apricots. Good sanitation is the best management strategy. Remove large wood piles and prunings from the orchard. Cultural control by maintaining optimum tree vigour is important as beetles are attracted to trees weakened by drought, transplanting, disease, etc.
Stink Bugs Notes: There are no registered products. Contact field advisor. Products registered for brown marmorated stink bugs (Actara and Clutch) will provide some control, and Malathion used for the control of other pests will also provide some control. Check product labels.
