PROTECTION OF POLLINATORSAPPLICATION RESTRICTIONS EXIST FOR Hi-Yield SystemicInsect Spray Ready-To-Spray BECAUSE OF RISK TO BEES ANDOTHER INSECT POLLINATORS. FOLLOW APPLICATION RESTRICTIONSFOUND IN THE DIRECTIONS FOR USE TO PROTECT POLLINATORS.Look for the bee hazard iconin the Directions for Use foreach application site for specific use restrictions and instructionsto protect bees and other insect pollinators.Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray can kill beesand other insect pollinators. Bees and other insect pollinators will forage on plants when theyflower, shed pollen, or produce nectar. Bees and other insectpollinators can be exposed to this pesticide from: Direct contact during foliar applications, or contact withresidues on plant surfaces after foliar applications Ingestion of residues in nectar and pollen when the pesticide isapplied as a seed treatment, soil, tree injection, as well as foliarapplications.When Using Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-SprayTake Steps To: Minimize exposure of Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray ReadyTo-Spray to bees and other insect pollinators when they areforaging on pollinator attractive plants around the application site. Minimize drift of Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Sprayon to beehives or to off-site pollinator attractive habitat. Drift of HiYield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray onto beehives oroff-site to pollinator attractive habitat can result in bee kills.Information on protecting bees and other insect pollinators may befound at the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship website at: on/Pages default.aspx.3

Foliar ApplicationsUse Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray as a foliarspray to provide contact control of larvae, nymphs or adults of thefollowing insect pests: Adelgids, Aphids, Japanese Beetles, LaceBugs, Leaf Beetles (including Elm Leaf Beetles and Viburnum LeafBeetles), Leafhoppers (including Glassy-Winged Sharpshooter),Mealybugs, Psyllids, Sawfly Larvae, Thrips (Suppression) andWhiteflies.Application InstructionsApply when insects first appear and before high pest populationsare established, prior to blooming or after all flower petals havefallen off. Retreat when re-infestation occurs, when high pestpressure is observed or repeat applications on an as-neededbasis with 10-14 day intervals between applications, not toexceed the maximum rate.How to ApplyFoliar applications with water must be made as a thorough coverspray to provide uniform distribution. Make application prior toblooming or after all flower petals have fallen off. Spray to wet allfoliage (leaves, stems and branches). Target the undersides of theleaves and try to penetrate dense foliage with the spray droplets.Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray Instructions1. Make sure knob control lever is in “OFF” position, then connectsprayer to garden hose.2. When spraying low growing groundcovers and small shrubs, twistthe sprayer hood to the “FAN” position. When spraying taller trees,shrubs and ornamentals, twist the sprayer hood to the “STREAM”position for extended reach and more uniform coverage.3. Turn water on at faucet. To begin spraying, turn [rotate] knobcontrol lever to “ON” position. The product mixes automaticallywith the water as you spray.11

4. To stop spraying, turn [rotate] knob control lever to the “OFF”position. Turn off water at the faucet. To relieve pressure, turn[rotate] knob control lever to the “ON” position and point thesprayer away from any desirable plants before disconnectingthe spray nozzle from the garden hose.Soil ApplicationsSoil application of Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-ToSpray provides systemic activity and longer residual control ascompared to foliar applications. Hi-Yield Systemic Insect SprayReady-To-Spray may be used on the soil around bedding plants,flowers, trees, shrubs, groundcovers and woody ornamentals inlandscape plantings as a soil surface spray.

Use one soil drench treatment per year duringearly spring to early fall.Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray can beapplied anytime except when the ground is saturated or frozen.These conditions will make movement of the product down intothe root zone difficult. When applying Hi-Yield Systemic InsectSpray Ready-To-Sprayy during dry periods, generously water thetree or shrub the night before treatment.NOTE: For insect control, the insecticide must move throughoutthe tree or shrub. The time it takes to do this will depend onthe size of the plant that is treated (one week to three monthsfor very large trees). For this reason, soil drenches should occur14

2-3 months before the expected pest infestation. Trees that arealready heavily infested may not survive due to the existing pestdamage and the resulting stress.Application InstructionsSoil Drench: Refer to the directions in the “TREES” section below.Soil Injection: Apply the rates indicated in the table in the “TREES”section. Divide the appropriate volume by the number of holesrequired. Place holes at approximately evenly spaced intervalsaround the entire circumference of the tree at about 2/3 the distancefrom the truck to the dripline. Inject at a depth of 8-12 inches.TREESDetermining Amount of Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray ReadyTo-Spray to UseMeasure the circumference (distance around the tree trunk) ininches at chest height or at 4.5 feet from the soil using a flexibletape. Or, measure the diameter of the tree trunk in inches at chestheight or at 4.5 feet from the soil.Mix 1 oz. of Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Sprayper inch of circumference of the tree trunk to one (1) gallon ofwater. Refer to the mixing chart below for the amounts of Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray needed.RESTRICTIONS FOR TREES: Do not apply Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-ToSpray, by any application method to linden, basswood, or otherTilia species. Do not apply more than 0.4 lb. a.i. Imidacloprid (410 oz. or 3.2gallons of Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray)per acre per year.15

How to ApplyApply the solution to the root zone as a band around the base ofthe tree. Apply one (1) gallon of solution in a circular band fromthe base of the tree outward for two (2) feet. For trees with trunkdiameters more than 16 inches at chest height, apply two (2)gallons of solution in a circular band from the base of the treeoutward for three to four (3-4) feet.Do not irrigate immediately after a soil drench application.Depending on the size and vigor of the tree, the uptake periodmay vary from one week to three months for larger trees. Insectcontrol will be achieved when the uptake and translocation fromthe roots to all plant parts (leaves) has occurred.Tree TrunkTreeCircumfer- 3568101112141618Amount ofHi-Yield SystemicInsect SprayReady-ToSpray(fl. oz.)81015202530354045505516Volume Band Width of Cirof Water cular Area Around(gallons)Base of Tree(outward 3-4’3-4’3-4’

Soil Drench to Apple, Pear, Peach, Plum, Cherry and Pecan TreesHi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spray quicklydissolves in water allowing the insecticide to move throughthe soil into the root zone. Once in the roots, the insecticidemoves up through the tree or shrub providing year-long insectprotection. Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Spray Ready-To-Spraywill also provide protection to new growth. Drench applicationsto individual trees will control aphids, borers, leafhoppers, lacebugs, mealybugs, scale insects, and other larvae as listed above.For insect control, the insecticide must move throughout the treeor shrub.
