High levels of control can be achieved when applications are made preceding or during the egg laying period. Optimum control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pest, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch. Applications should not be made when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Adequate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when these conditions exist. The treated turf must be in such a condition that the rainfall or irrigation will penetrate vertically in the soil profile. Applications cannot exceed a total of 80 lbs. (0.4 lb. of active ingredient) per acre per year.

The Zenith .5G label has no rate based on height or caliber of trees and shrubs. Is there a rate per foot?
I am targeting azalea lacebugs, and the rate per 1000 sq. feet seems light.
Zenith .5G is not labeled for soil drenchs only ornamental landscapes. Per the manufacturer, the product should not be applied in the soil where it will be saturated. We recommend that you apply Dominion 2L as a soil drench for lacebugs. The Dominion 2L is labeled for a soil drench and has the rate charted listed based on the height of the shrub or the DBH of the tree for application.
