Pradia Insecticide is a powerful insecticide that offers broad-spectrum control of both chewing and sucking insect pests. Contains Cyclaniliprole and Flonicamid as its two active ingredients that are known for providing immediate knockdown and long-lasting residual activity. It is ideal to use on ornamental plants that are grown in nurseries and greenhouses. This insecticide features a soluble concentrate formula that is easy and hassle-free to apply. It targets and controls insect pests such as aphids, moths, lace bugs, caterpillars, whiteflies, leafminers, thrips, plant bugs, loopers, Japanese beetles, and flea beetles. Proven to be fast-acting within 48 hours plus, lengthy control of unwanted insects on your nurseries and greenhouses that lasts for 3 to 4 weeks. Compatible to be tank-mixed with all fungicides, adjuvants, liquid fertilizers, insecticides, and miticides and may also be applied using any type of application equipment. It is user-friendly and highly effective even on lady beetles, predatory mites, and parasitic wasps plus considered a great alternative to insecticides with pyrethroid and neonicotinoid so it is a perfect tool for Integrated Pest Management. For safety and optimum performance, ensure uniform coverage and 12 hours of restricted entry interval is advised.

PRADIA can be used effectively in dilute or concentrate sprays. Thorough, uniform coverage is essential for pest control.

NOTE: Slowly invert container several times to assure uniform mixture of the formulation before adding this product to the spray tank.

PRADIA may be applied with all types of application equipment normally used for ground, chemigation and through sprinkler irrigation applications.

The required amount of PRADIA should be added slowly into the spray tank during filling. With concentrate sprays, pre-mix the required amount of PRADIA in a clean container and add to the spray tank as it is being filled. Keep agitator running when filling spray tank and during spray operations. DO NOT allow spray mixture to stand overnight or for prolonged periods. Prepare only the amount of spray required for immediate use. Spraying equipment should be thoroughly cleaned immediately after the application.

Apply PRADIA in sufficient water to obtain adequate coverage of the foliage. Gallonage to be used will vary by the size of the ornamental plant and amount of growth. Spray volume will usually range from 20 to 100 gallons per acre (200 to 1000 liters per hectare) for dilute sprays, and 5 to 10 gallons per acre (50 to 100 liters per hectare) for concentrate ground sprays. For application through sprinkler irrigation systems see application and calibration instructions below.


PRADIA is physically compatible (no nozzle or screen blockage) with many products recommended for control of diseases and insects on ornamentals. Read and follow all manufacturer’s label recommendations for the tank mix companion product. It is the applicator’s responsibility to ensure that the companion product is EPA approved for use on the intended ornamental crop. PRADIA is generally compatible with other insecticides, fungicides, adjuvants, fertilizers, and micronutrient products provided sufficient free water is available for dispersion of all the tank mix products. The use of a high-quality adjuvant at a rate of 0.025% to 0.1% on volume to volume basis may improve performance under extreme conditions. However, not all ornamental varieties have been tested with all possible tank mix combinations. Thus the combination should be tested for plant safety on a small portion of the ornamental crop to ensure that a phytotoxic response will not occur. In addition, the physical compatibility of PRADIA with tank-mix partners must be evaluated before use. Conduct a jar test with intended tank-mix pesticides prior to preparation of large volumes. Use the following procedure: 1) Pour the recommended proportions of the products into a suitable container of water. Add the products to be tank-mixed in the following order: (a) wettable powders (b) dry flowable, (c) aqueous suspensions, (d) PRADIA (e) liquids, (f) solutions and emulsifiable liquid concentrates, 2) Mix thoroughly and 3) Allow to stand for 5 minutes. If the combination remains mixed or can be re-mixed readily, it is considered physically compatible. Any physical incompatibility in the jar test indicates that PRADIA should not be used in the tank-mix.


Plant injury or lack of effectiveness can result from non-uniform distribution of treated water.

If you have questions about calibration, you should contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts.

DO NOT apply PRADIA through irrigation systems connected to a public water system. “Public water system” means a system for the provision to the public of piped water for human consumption if such system has at least 15 service connections or regularly serves an average of at least 25 individuals daily at least 60 days per year.

Controls for both irrigation water and pesticide injection systems must be functionally interlocked, so as to automatically terminate pesticide injection when the irrigation water pump motor stops. A person knowledgeable of the irrigation system and responsible for its operation shall be present so as to discontinue pesticide injection and make necessary adjustments, should the need arise.

The irrigation water pipeline must be fitted with a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of treated irrigation water back toward the water source. The pipeline must also be fitted with a vacuum relief valve and low-pressure drain, located between the irrigation water pump and the check valve, to prevent back-siphoning of treated irrigation water into the water source.

Always inject PRADIA into irrigation water after it discharges from the irrigation pump and after it passes through the check valve. Never inject pesticides into the intake line on the suction side of the pump.


  • Adelgids, Aphids, Borers (Beetle and Caterpillar), Foliage Feeding Beetles (including Japanese Beetles, Flea Beetles, Leaf Beetles), Foliage Feeding Caterpillars (including Armyworms, Loopers, Webworms, Leafrollers/ Folders, Gypsy Moth, etc.), Lace Bugs, Leafminers, Mealybugs, Midges, Plant Bugs, Psyllids (including Asian Citrus Psyllid) Root Weevil Complex (Adults), Sawflies, Soft Scales, Stink Bug, Thrips (Foliage Feeding), Whiteflies.
  • 10 - 17.5 fl. oz.
  • Container and Field Grown (Bed) Plants
    • PRADIA can be applied to ornamentals, including conifers, grown in containers in greenhouses and outdoor nurseries.
    • Apply PRADIA as a foliar spray in sufficient spray solution to thoroughly wet the foliage to the point of runoff, generally not to exceed 100 gallons per acre. If a larger volume is needed to wet the foliage, do not exceed the maximum rate of 17.5 fl. oz. per acre.
    • Begin applications when pests first appear or when economic thresholds have been reached.
    • Stink bugs** PRADIA provides suppression of stink bug NYMPHS ONLY. Use as a part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program and target the most susceptible life stages and application timings. Use in conjunction with other modes of action and effective control products. Performance is enhanced when used with an effective adjuvant. For best results, use the high labeled rate when targeting stink bug nymphs.
    • All Labeled Pests: For best results and maximum residual control, use the higher labeled rates unless otherwise directed.
    • Resistance Management: Do not apply PRADIA or other Group 28 or Group 29 insecticides more than 3 times within a single generation of insect pest(s) on an ornamental crop.
    • Restrictions: Foliar application of this product on outdoor ornamental plants during bloom is prohibited from onset of flowering until flowering is complete; unless the rate is limited to 16 fl. oz./acre (0.053 lb. a.i./acre) and the application is made in the evening when bees are less likely to be actively foraging (2 hours prior to sunset to 8 hours prior to sunrise). This product has been determined to have short residual toxicity (RT25) time, therefore the hazard to bees is significantly reduced soon after application. Minimal interval between treatment is 7 days.
    • Do not apply more than 61 fl. oz. PRADIA per acre per year (0.199 lb. Cyclaniliprole/acre/year and 0.267 lb. Flonicamid/acre/year). [In New York State, do not apply more than 54 fl. oz. per acre per year (0.18 lb. Cyclaniliprole/acre/year) and 0.22 lb. Flonicamid/ acre/year.]
