DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Do not apply this through any type of irrigation system. Not for broadcast use in nurseries. Not for use on sod farms, on grass grown for seed, or on golf course turf. Do not apply this by aerial application.

Do not apply to impervious horizontal surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways, and patios except as a spot or crack and crevice treatment. During application, do not allow pesticide to enter or runoff into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters.

All outdoor applications, if permitted elsewhere on this label, must be limited to spot or crack-and-crevice treatments only, except for the following permitted uses, if allowed elsewhere on this label:

  1. Applications to soil or vegetation, as listed on this label, around structures;
  2. Applications to lawns, turf, and other vegetation, as listed on this label;
  3. Applications to the side of a building, up to a maximum height of 3 feet above grade;
  4. Applications to the underside of eaves, soffits, doors, or windows permanently protected from rainfall by a covering, overhang, awning, or other structure;
  5. Applications around potential pest entry point into buildings, when limited to a surface band not to exceed one inch in width;
  6. Applications made through the use of a coarse, low-pressure spray to only those portions of surfaces that are directly above bare soil, lawn, turf, mulch or other vegetation, as listed on this label, and not over an impervious surface, drainage or other condition that could result in runoff into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters, or surface waters, in order to control occasional invaders or aggregating pests.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS:

MAVRIK AQUAFLOW Insecticide Miticide (MAVRIK AQUAFLOW) controls insects and controls or suppresses mite pests when used at labeled rates. MAVRIK AQUAFLOW works primarily through contact action, good spray coverage is necessary. Treat when pests are immature or at a susceptible stage and populations are manageable, before plant damage occurs. Repeat applications as needed, according to the specific use directions given in this label. Residues of MAVRIK AQUAFLOW can continue to control certain insect pests for a week or longer. Growth dilution, climatic variables, and pest habits determine retreatment needs.

Dilute MAVRIK AQUAFLOW in sufficient water to give thorough spray coverage based on previous experience. For best results under varying conditions, a range of use rates is recommended for most uses. Select the higher rates when pest pressure or damage potential is severe. The lower rates often give acceptable economic results. Buffer spray water to pH 5-7, if necessary.

For severe mite infestations, use the highest rate of MAVRIK AQUAFLOW and use an acaricide in an alternate treatment program. The use of a spreadersticker, insecticidal soaps, or piperonyl butoxide may improve control of mites and some insects, such as, whiteflies, aphids, thrips, and mealybugs. MAVRIK AQUAFLOW may be used as a tank-mix. The more stringent product label will apply when tank-mixing two products. When MAVRIK AQUAFLOW is tank-mixed with wettable powders, add powders to the tank first using good agitation. Check for physical and biological compatibility prior to use.

Dried residues of MAVRIK AQUAFLOW are non-toxic and non-repellent to honey bees. Treat during nonforaging periods to minimize adverse effects.

Consult your local extension office, pest management consultant, or a Wellmark International specialist for guidance in selecting a rate and timing schedule or tank mix combination that has demonstrated good performance under specific conditions. Follow all use directions and precautions for products used in tank mix.

FOR OUTDOOR APPLICATIONS:

Use lower rates and greater retreatment intervals for light to moderate insect pressures. Use higher rates and shorter retreatment intervals for green peach aphids, unexposed insects and heavy pressures of other insects. Directly spray at the rate of 0.1 fl oz/gallon to kill lone star ticks and deer ticks and bark scorpions. Mite suppression can be obtained using the lower rate; for more residual control of mites, use up to 10 fl oz/100 gal water. For maximum mite control, tank-mix with an acaricide.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS:

This is toxic to fish and aquatic organisms. To protect the environment, do not allow pesticide to enter or runoff into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters. Applying this product in calm weather when rain is not predicted for the next 24 hours will help to ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash pesticide off the treatment area. Rinsing application equipment over the treated area will help avoid runoff to water bodies or drainage systems. Use with care when applying in areas adjacent to any body of water. Drift and runoff from treated areas may be hazardous to fish and aquatic organisms in adjacent aquatic sites. Do not apply when weather conditions favor drift from the target area.

This is toxic to honey bees if bees are exposed to direct application. However, dried residues of this product are non-toxic to honey bees. Treat during non-foraging periods to minimize adverse effects.

    Incredible residual, quick kill

    By Hugh on 05/25/2008

    I've used Mavrik Aquaflow insecticide extensively on everything from bedding plants to 50' California live oak trees. Mavrik gives a high degree of control on every infestation I've tried it on. Even mites, whitefly and scales are controlled. Eugenia Psyllids are a huge problem in S. California. Mavrik gives an incredible six month control with one spray. The kill is very quick. The high dilution rates make it economical to use as well. I've been in the business nearly 40 years, and for me, Mavrik is the "go to" material.

    Mavrik Works...

    By Keith on 08/11/2009

    Compared to common insecticides, Mavrik Aquaflow  seemed rather expensive. However this product really works, especially on Psyllids.
