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 through any type of irrigation system. 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.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT

MALATHION 5EC contains a Group 1B insecticide or acaricide. Insect/mite biotypes with acquired resistance to Group 1B may eventually dominate the insect/mite population if Group 1B insecticides or acaricides are used repeatedly in the same field or in successive years as the primary method of control for targeted species. This may result in partial or total loss of control of those species by this product or other Group 1B insecticides or acaricides.

To delay insecticide or acaricide resistance, consider:

  • Avoiding the consecutive use of this product or other Group 1B insecticides/acaricides that have similar target site of action on the same insect/mite species.
  • Using tank-mixtures or pre-mixes with insecticides/acaricides from a different target site action Group as long as the involved products are all registered for the same use and have different sites of action.
  • Basing insecticide/acaricide use on a comprehensive IPM program.
  • Monitoring treated insect/mite populations for loss of field efficacy.
  • Contact your Local extension specialist, certified crop advisors, and/or manufacturer for insecticide/acaricide resistance management and/or IPM recommendations for specific site and resistant pest problems.

PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS:

Do not allow spray to contact auto vehicles as paint finish could be permanently damaged. If vehicles come into contact with spray, wash immediately. This product is not for use against Mosquitoes in the State of New York.

MIXING PROCEDURES:

Fill the spray tank at least three-fourths full with water before this product is added. Mechanical agitation or recirculation through the pump bypass to the tank is usually sufficient for maintaining a good dispersion. Rinse empty container with water and drain into spray tank. Repeat two more times.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS:

This pesticide is toxic to aquatic organisms, including fish and invertebrates. This product may contaminate water through drift of spray in wind. This product has a high potential for runoff after application. Use care when applying in or to an area which is adjacent to any body of water, and do not apply when weather conditions favor drift from target area. Poorly draining soils and soils with shallow water tables are more prone to produce runoff that contains this product. A level, well maintained vegetative buffer strip between areas to which this product is applied and surface water features such as ponds, streams and springs will reduce the potential for contamination of water from rainfall runoff. Runoff of this product will be reduced by avoiding applications when rainfall is forecasted to occur within 48 hours.

Do not apply directly to water, or to areas where surface water is present or to intertidal areas below the mean high water mark. Do not contaminate water when disposing of equipment washwater or rinsate. This pesticide is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment on blooming crops or weeds. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops or weeds while bees are actively visiting the treatment area.
