spirodiclofen (Envidor) 2805123750 mL300 mL12 h7Apply only once per season. Spray interval: minimum 7 days.
bifenazate (Acramite) 2792520D851 g344 g12 h7Do not apply more than once/season. Residual control: 21 days.
mineral oil (Purespray Green) 27666NC10 L4 L12 h0For suppression only. Begin applications when mites first appear, allow 10-14 days between applications. To prevent phytotoxicity, do not apply less than 1000 L water/ha (1% solution). Do not use within 14 days of captan. Post harvest sprays may be made to reduce over- wintering pressure.
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.
