Apply this product only through sprinkler (including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel) roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, or hand move) irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system.

Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide resides in the crop 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 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 the operation or under the supervision of the responsible person, shal shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.

The system must contain a functional check valve, vacuum relief valve, and low-pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water source contamination from backflow. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump. The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the pump motor stops. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure valve, which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected.

Systems must be a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.

Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

Constant agitation must be maintained in the chemical supply tank during the entire period of insecticide application. Greater accuracy in calibration and distribution will be achieved by injecting a larger volume of more dilute suspension per unit of time.


Apply 4.5 to 17 fluid ounces per acre by ground equipment in sufficient water for thorough coverage. This product may be applied by air at the rate of 4.5 to 17 fluid ounces per acre in a minimum of 2 gallons of water per acre for field crops and in a minimum of 10 gallons of water per acre for orchard crops. Mix only enough for immediate use. Spraying should begin when insects first appear. Do not wait until plants are heavily infested. Repeat as needed but not more than once daily.

PyGanic Specialty may be used on most crops because its active ingredient is exempt from tolerances when applied to growing crops. The crop-grouping scheme used on this label was devised by the Environmental Protection Agency to expedite minor use pesticide registration. Each crop grouping on this label contains the phrase “including, but not limited to,” and then lists a number of crops in each group. This wording allows the use of PyGanic Specialty on crops that may not be specifically listed on this label (providing that the group to which the crop belongs is listed).


Field and Orchard - 0.05 lbs. a.i. / acre or 17 fl. oz. of PyGanic Specialty per acre. 0.0012 lb. a.i. / 1,000 sq. ft. Greenhouse space sprays - 0.0014 lbs. a.i. /acre.


Combine 16 to 32 fluid ounces with 100 gallons of water for applications withvconventional sprayers or 1/4 – 1/2 of a fluid ounce per gallon of water for applicationsvwith handheld or backpack sprayers. Apply the diluted product at the rate of 3 gallons / 1,000 sq. ft.

Do not exceed maximum application rate of .0036 lbs. a.i. / 1,000 sq. ft. or 1.18 fl. oz. of PyGanic Specialty / 1,000 sq. ft.

Do not apply more than 1 time per day.


For commercial production of listed crops to kill listed insects dilute 1/4 to 1/2 fl. oz. of PyGanic Specialty per gallon of water. Apply diluted solution with all types of agricultural sprayers, including compressed air sprayers or pump driven sprayers.


Product must be formulated to deliver no more than this maximum rate when used according to directions: Surface application 0.0056 lbs. a.i. / 1,000 sq. ft. or 18 fl. oz. of PyGanic Specialty / 1,000 sq. ft. Crack/crevice or spot surface – 0.056 lbs. a.i. / 1,000 sq. ft. or 18 fl. oz. of PyGanic Specialty / 100 sq. ft.

Space sprays when non-domestic animals are absent – 0.0033 lbs. a.i. / 1,000 cubic feet of space or 1 fl. oz. of PyGanic Specialty / 1,000 cubic feet of space.

Space sprays when non-domestic animals are present 0.0008 lb. a.i. / 1,000 cubic feet of space or 0.26 fl. oz. of PyGanic Specialty / 1,000 cubic feet of space.

To kill the following flying insects: Fruit Flies, Gnats and Small Flying Moths, dilute at the rate of 2.5 fluid ounces per gallon of water. Apply as a fog or fine mist at approximately 2 fluid ounces per 1,000 cubic feet of space, directing the nozzle for maximum coverage and above livestock and poultry toward the ceiling and upper corners of the area beingtreated. For best results, close doors and windows before spraying, and keep them closed for 10 to 15 minutes. Applicator should vacate the treated area and ventilate it prior to returning. Sweep up and destroy fallen insects.


When using this product, installers and service technicians must comply with the license certification, or registration requirements of the state(s), tribe(s) or local authority(ies) where they are installed.

Do not apply when food, feed, and/or water is present.

When applying via a remote activation device, do not apply when people and pets are present. If possible, when applying via automatic timer, set the timing for application when people and pets are unlikely to be present.

Direct nozzles to spray towards the target area and away from areas where people are typically present. Do not use in an evaporative cooling system. Do not use in misters located within 3 feet of air vents, air conditioner units or windows.

If used in a system with a reservoir tank for the end use dilution, the system reservoir tank must be locked. Securely attach the end use pesticide label and a dilution statement to the system reservoir tank in a weather protected area or plastic sleeve. The dilution statement must be phrased as follows: this container holds __ parts PyGanic Specialty to ___ parts water.

This product must only be used in systems that have been calibrated to apply no more than the maximum application rate of .0008 lbs. a.i. / 1,000 cubic feet space sprays when non-domestic animals are present.

    Great Product

    By Chris on 07/13/2018

    The product arrived quickly and I used it that same day on an acre of blueberries which were being devastated by nasty Japanese beetles. We were in the middle of "Pick-Your-Own" season and nonorganic chemicals were simply not an option. The Pyganic worked well for about 2-3 days. I love the built-in measuring - wish ALL products had this feature. Will have to spray again but at least it helped.
