Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 2F is a Group 4 Insecticide that is specially formulated to provide systemic control and long-lasting residual of soil-inhabiting insects in turfgrasses, ornamentals, nurseries, greenhouses, landscapes, and golf courses. It contains 21.8% Imidacloprid which is effective against insect pests such as Northern masked chafer, Southern masked chafer, European chafer, Japanese beetle, Green June beetle, Oriental beetle, European crane fly, annual bluegrass weevil, mole crickets, cutworms, chinch bugs, and more. This flowable formula features low use rates, making it easier and more cost-efficient to apply. It is also easy to measure and mix, allowing more flexibility during application.
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE may be used to control listed insect pests on turfgrass in residential lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields and sod farms.
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE controls listed soil-inhabiting pests such as Northern and Southern masked chafers, Cyclocephala borealis, C. immaculata, and/or C. lurida; Asiatic garden beetle, Maladera castanea; European chafer, Rhizotrogus majalis; Green June beetle, Cotinis nitida; May or June beetle, Phyllophaga spp.; Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica; Oriental beetle, Anomala orientalis; Billbugs Spherophorus spp.; Annual bluegrass weevil, Hyperodes spp.; Black turfgrass ataenius, Ataenius spretulus and Aphodius spp.; European Crane Fly, Tipula paludosa; and mole crickets, scapteriscus spp.
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE can also be used for suppression of cutworms and chinch bugs.
For optimum control, make applications preceding or during the egg-laying period of the target pest. The active ingredient in QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE has enough residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg-laying activity. Application timing can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Most favorable control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests. Follow applications with sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.
RESTRICTIONS: Do not make applications when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Sufficient distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved under these conditions. The treated turf area must be in such a condition that the rainfall or irrigation will penetrate vertically in the soil profile.
Do not exceed a total of 1.6 pt (0.4 lb of active ingredient)/A per year.
APPLICATION EQUIPMENT FOR USE ON TURFGRASS
Apply QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE in sufficient water to provide adequate distribution in the treated area. The use of accurately calibrated equipment normally used for the application of turfgrass insecticides is required. Use equipment which will produce a uniform, coarse droplet spray, using a low-pressure setting to eliminate off-target drift. Check calibration periodically to ensure that equipment is working properly.
RESTRICTION: Do not apply through any irrigation system.
APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE is for use on ornamentals in commercial and residential landscapes and interior plantscapes. QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE is a systemic product and will be taken up into the plant system from root uptake. The product must be placed where the growing portion of the target plant can absorb the active ingredient. The addition of a nitrogen-containing fertilizer, where applicable, into the solution may enhance the uptake of the active ingredient. Application can be made by foliar application or soil applications including soil injection, drenches, and broadcast sprays. Foliar applications offer locally systemic activity against insect pests.
When making soil applications to plants with woody stems, systemic activity will be delayed until the active ingredient is taken up throughout the plant. In some cases, this translocation delay could take 60 days or longer. For this reason, apply prior to anticipated pest infestation to achieve optimum levels of control.
For outdoor applications, do not exceed a total of 1.6 pt (0.4 lb of active ingredient) /A per year.
Not for use on grass grown for seed or on commercial fruit and nut trees.
Do not apply this product, by any application method, to linden, basswood, or other Tilia species.
Ant Management Programs
Use QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE to control aphids, scale insects, mealybugs and other sucking pests on ornamentals to limit the honeydew available as a food source for ant populations. QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE applications can be then supplemented with residual sprays, bait placements or other ant control tactics to further reduce the pest population.
APPLICATION EQUIPMENT FOR FOLIAR APPLICATIONS
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE mixes readily with water and may be used in many types of application equipment. Mix product with the required amount of water and apply as desired dependent upon the selected use pattern.
When making foliar applications on hard to wet foliage such as holly, pine or ivy, the addition of a spreader/sticker is recommended. If concentrate or mist type spray equipment is used, an equivalent amount of product should be used on the area sprayed as would be used in a dilute application.
QUALI-PRO IMIDACLOPRID 2F TURF and ORNAMENTAL INSECTICIDE has been found to be compatible with commonly used fungicides, miticides, liquid fertilizers, and other commonly used insecticides. Check physical compatibility using the correct proportion of products in a small jar test if local experience is unavailable.
Do not apply through any irrigation system.
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact people or pets.
Do not allow children or pets to enter treated areas until sprays have dried.
This product is highly toxic to aquatic invertebrates. Do not apply directly to water, 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 washwaters or rinsate. This product is highly toxic to bees exposed to direct treatment or residues on blooming crops/plants or weeds. Do not apply this product or allow it to drift to blooming crops/plants or weeds if bees are foraging. This chemical demonstrates the properties and characteristics associated with chemicals detected in groundwater. The use of this chemical in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow, may result in groundwater contamination.

How much Imidacloprid T and O 2F and how much water to treat an acre of turf?
Imidacloprid T and O 2F mix rate 1.25 to 1.6 pt/A or 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. (14 to 17 mL) per 1000 sq. ft. in sufficient water to provide adequate distribution in the treated area. Typically 1-2 gallons covers 1000 sqft but it could take you more depending on your walking speed and equipment used.
