SANMITE Miticide Insecticide is intended for control of mites and whiteflies on ornamental plants, flowers, and foliage crops. SANMITE provides excellent knockdown and residual control. A good evaluation of performance can generally be made 4 - 7 days after treatment.
All crops listed in Table 2 on the label. Plant Species Tested for Tolerance to SANMITE are tolerant to SANMITE.
Mode of Action
SANMITE works primarily through contact action. Treat plants when pests are immature or at a susceptible stage and populations are building, before crop damage occurs.
Using SANMITE in successive miticide applications is not recommended. Use SANMITE as part of a sound resistance management program that includes rotation with other treatments having different modes of action.
Apply SANMITE in sufficient water to ensure thorough coverage of foliage. Thorough coverage is required for optimum control. To achieve adequate coverage, use proper spray pressure, nozzles, nozzle spacing, and volume per acre. Consult spray nozzle and accessory guide for information pertaining to proper equipment calibration.
