Product Overview

Kontos Insecticide is an excellent alternative to neonicotinoid chemistry insecticides. It is an insecticide that provides effective control of mites and sucking pests such as aphids, mealybugs, adelgids, spittlebugs, whiteflies, and thrips. Contains Spirotetramat as its active ingredient that powerfully controls insect pests during its immature stage. Kontos Insecticide is a liquid suspension concentrate that provides a systemic activity which helps in protecting the whole plant. It is perfect for Integrated Pest Management programs because it offers protection against sucking pests that lasts up to 30 days. Ideal to use in greenhouses, ornamentals, nurseries, vegetable transplants, interior Plantscapes, and non-bearing fruit and nut trees. Proven to be long-lasting and convenient to use because it may be applied through foliar or drench application. To prevent insect resistance, use in rotation with other insecticides. Available in a 250-ml bottle.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.

For foliar and systemic insect control on ornamental plants in greenhouses, nurseries, and interior plant scapes, including non-bearing fruit and nut trees (i.e., trees that will not bear fruit or nuts for one year after application) and vegetables for resale.

APPLICATION INFORMATION

Kontos is a Suspension Concentrate formulation. Following application to plant foliage, Kontos is fully systemic, moving through phloem and xylem to all plant tissues including new shoot, leaf and root growth. Spray adjuvants with spreading / penetrating characteristics may improve leaf uptake and systemic concentration of active ingredient. The active ingredient contained in Kontos is active primarily by ingestion. Fecundity of adult insects and mites may be reduced. Make applications as preventative treatments or to coincide with early threshold levels in developing insect and mite populations. Kontos can be applied by ground equipment (including hand-held application equipment) or through chemigation.

FOLIAR SPRAY APPLICATIONS

Foliar applications must be made using properly calibrated ground sprayers (including hand-held and backpack sprayers), through properly designed, sprinkler-type, chemigation equipment.

Application through irrigation systems

Kontos may be applied at rates on this label either alone or in tank mixture with other pesticides and chemicals registered for application through irrigation systems. The normal dilution ratio is 1:10 to 1:200, depending on the system. Always meter the product into the irrigation water during the first part of the irrigation cycle. The product may be mixed separately prior to injection. Agitation may be necessary if the mixture is allowed to stand more than 24 hours. Remove scale, pesticide residue and other foreign matter from the tank and entire irrigation system.

Apply Kontos only through micro-irrigation (individual spaghetti tube), drip irrigation, overhead irrigation, ebb, and flood, or hand-held or motorized calibrated irrigation equipment.

Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. Crop injury or lack of effectiveness can result from the non-uniform distribution of treated water. If you have any questions about calibration, contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts. Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place

A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or a person who is under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS

COMPATIBILITY / MIXING / ORDER-OF-MIXING

Observe all cautions and limitations on labeling of all products used in mixtures. Kontos is physically and biologically compatible with many registered pesticides and fertilizers or micronutrients. When considering mixing Kontos with other pesticides, or other additives, first contact your supplier for advice. For further information, contact your local Bayer representative. If your supplier and Bayer representative have no experience with the combination you are considering, conduct a test to determine physical compatibility. To determine physical compatibility, add the recommended proportions of each chemical with the same proportion of water as will be present in the chemical supply tank, into a suitable container, mix thoroughly, and allow the mixture to stand for five minutes. If the combination remains mixed or can be readily remixed, the mixture is considered physically compatible.

The proper mixing procedure for Kontos alone or in tank mix combinations with other pesticides is:

  1. Fill the spray tank 1/4 to 1/3 full with clean water; 
  2. While recirculating and with the agitator running, add any labeled amounts of Kontos. Allow time for thorough mixing;
  3. Continue to fill spray tank with water until 1/2 full; 
  4. Add any other wettable powder (WP) or wettable granules (WG) products;
  5. Allow enough time for thorough mixing of each product added to the tank;
  6. If applicable, add any remaining tank mix components: emulsifiable concentrates (EC), fertilizers, micronutrients, spray adjuvants.
  7. Fill spray tank to the desired level and maintain constant agitation to ensure uniformity of spray mixture.
