Forbid 4F Ornamental Insecticide Miticide offers a unique mode of action that works against mites that have developed resistance to other more common miticides. Forbid 4F Ornamental Insecticide Miticide will control mites and whiteflies on foliage plants, ornamental plants, and flowers around commercial buildings and residential buildings, and in recreational areas like golf courses and parks. Controls pests for up to 45 days.

Forbid 4F Ornamental Insecticide Miticide is effective against all stages of insect development, but for an optimal outcome use this product at juvenile stages of development and prior to the development of a large population of pests.

GENERAL INFORMATION

FORBID 4F is a Flowable (Suspension Concentrate) formulation that is intended for control of mites and whiteflies on ornamental plants, flowers and foliage plants. The active ingredient contained in FORBID 4F is active on all mite development stages. However, mite juvenile stages are often more susceptible than adults. Application should be timed to coincide with early threshold levels in a developing mite population.

FORBID 4F is also highly effective against whitefly nymphs, plus it has a significant effect on the otherwise difficult to control pupal stage. For best results against whitefly, applications should target these life stages.

FORBID 4F can be applied by ground equipment. However, thorough coverage of all plant parts is required for optimum performance. Performance evaluations should be made 4 – 10 days after application.

Apply specific dosage of FORBID 4F as needed for control. For best results, uniform coverage of the upper and lower leaf surfaces is recommended. Avoid excess application that results in runoff from plant foliage. An adjuvant may be used to improve coverage on hard to wet foliage. For best results, the treatment should be made when whitefly or mite population begins to build and before a damaging population becomes established. Rate range is provided and is generally dependent on size of the plant and density of the foliage.

    absolutely the best miticide avaliable

    By Wit on 12/23/2014

    I have tried NPK Mighty wash, Einstein oil, Avid and about every product out their with little to no results. I finally bought Forbid 4F and with one heavy application the might were gone after 3 days and did not reappear. Most products want you to soak or spray under leaves and forbid you only need to spray the tops which in my case growing scrog is very hard to get at the undersides of leaves. I spray once at the start of veg cycle and once at the start of bloom and nnever have mite issues. I even brought 2 might infested plants into room the day I treated my crop and the mites I brought in also died off. I would recommend this to everyone but please make sure you wear gloves and a respirator when applying and don't use to close to harvest......A+ product and mites won't built resistance to it

    Forbid is for when all your chips are on the table

    By Croppin on 09/02/2015

    Don't fumble around with other miticides if you're money's on the line, just pay the 200 bucks, soak 'em and sleep tight knowing all mites+ their eggs will be dead in no time.

My book on my bottle of Forbid got wet & unreadable. I just want to make sure I don't burn my garden, thanks.

The label states to use 2-6 Ml into 5 gallons of water. So you would approx. 1.2 ML into one gallon water.

Can you tell me how long Forbid 4F will remain viable once it is mixed with water?

Sometimes after applying the product I have a little left over. I've heard it has a short "shelf life" once it has been mixed for application?

Once Forbid 4F Ornamental Insecticide Miticide has been mixed with water, we recommend using all of the mixed solution within 24 hours.  Any solution that has not been used after 24 hours should be discarded.
