DIRECTIONS FOR USE

GENERAL
Apply at first sign of infestation when worms are small and repeat at weekly intervals as needed to maintain control. Thuricide must be carried into the insects gut while feeding, to be effective. Thorough coverage of leaf surface is essential for best results. After ingesting Thuricide, worms stop feeding and will die within 2-3 days.

MIXING
SHAKE WELL before using - Pour recommended amount into 3/4 filled spray tank. Agitate and maintain agitation. Do not allow dilute spray to stand in tank more than a few hours. Combinations with most fungicides and stickers are not deleterious if used promptly. A Non-ionic spreader sticker, used sparingly, is recommended when applications must be made when frequent rainfall and heavy dews are anticipated. Do not combine with alkaline materials such as bordeaux mixture or lime sulfur During hot, sunny or windy weather, late afternoon and early evening applications produce better results. Apply to obtain thorough leaf coverage. Thuricide HPC, when applied at recommended rates, may be used up to the day of harvest.

RECOMMENDATIONS
THOROUGH COVERAGE IS ESSENTIAL. Apply indicated amount in each gallon of water and spray to obtain thorough coverage of foliage.

ORNAMENTALS SHRUBS, TREES, AND FLOWERING PLANTS: For the control of Tent caterpillar, Fall webworm, Oakmoth larvae, Oleander Caterpillar and Gypsy moth larvae use 4 teaspoonfuls per gallon. ORNAMENTALS IN HOME GREENHOUSES: For pests listed on this label use 2 tsp. per gallon.

    Caterpillar control

    By Melody on 06/24/2016

    I was late getting on the army worm or leaf curler, whichever but spraying every seven days has started controlling the damage and I am harvesting San Marzano, cherry, and beefsteak tomatoes from my 100 sq ft garden daily. The bugs like my brandy wines but I have kept them safe with the Bt. I should start to see the BW start to ripen within the week. Thank you

    Works Great!

    By Cindy on 08/28/2017

    NOTHING WORKED ~ Until I used THIS!!! Every day my husband would go out and pick off those little green caterpillars...but they would be back the next day, eating our geraniums, ruining the newly formed flower buds, and eating holes in the leaves!! I started using this two weeks ago ~ We have found only TWO caterpillars in the last two weeks!! IT WORKS!!!!
