Description

Preserve 120 SC Insecticide

Active Ingredient: Spinosad @ 120g/L

Preserve 120 SC Insecticide is for the control of various insect pests in fruit, ornamentals, vegetables, and forestry situations. Preserve 120 SC Insecticide is made from Spinosad, an insecticide naturally derived from living organisms that provide excellent control of caterpillar and thrip pests.

Surefire Preserve 120 SC Insecticide is formulated as a suspension concentrate that is suitable for application in water by aircraft, ground rigs or knapsacks. It has a unique mode of action and controls insect pests that are resistant to conventional insecticides. The active constituent is derived from the fermentation of a naturally occurring micro-organism. It has low toxicity to mammals, birds, fish, crustaceans and many predatory insect species. The product may be used in integrated pest management (IPM) and conventional insect control programs. Surefire Preserve 120 SC Insecticide works by both contact and ingestion. Exposed insects stop feeding almost immediately but may take up to 3 days to die.

A major advantage of Surefire Preserve  120 Insecticide when compared with many other insecticides is its relatively selective activity against target insects, such as Lepidoptera and Diptera species, coupled with generally lesser activity against many beneficial insect predators and other non-target species.

The active ingredient, Spinosad, is broken down readily by sunlight. When applied to leaves, some Spinosad will be absorbed. However, it does not readily spread from leaves to the rest of the plant. Surefire Preserve 120 Insecticide is rainfast only after complete drying on plant surfaces and it is suitable for both dilute and concentrate spraying.

    Preserve 120 SC Insecticide is toxic to all bees.  Avoid direct application or drift of the spray mix onto beehives.  Once the spray deposit has dried, foraging bees will not be affected.

Tips For Use

Restraints:

  • Do not make more than 4 applications to any crop in any one season, except where otherwise indicated in the Critical Comments (also see the resistance statement).

Mixing:

  • Agitate or shake the container immediately prior to use. Half fill the spray tank with water, add the appropriate amount of accurately measured Surefire Preserve 120 SC Insecticide, then complete filling the tank.
  • Ensure thorough agitation by mechanical or hydraulic action at all times during mixing and application.
  • Use only clean water within the range pH 5-9 to dilute Surefire Preserve 120 SC Insecticide.
  • Whenever possible the spray mix should be used immediately after it is prepared. However, if weather conditions or mechanical breakdown prevent immediate use, the spray mix may be stored for up to 72 hours without loss of activity.

Application:

  • Thorough coverage of the crop is essential. Ensure this by increasing water volume with plant growth stage.
  • Do not apply when conditions are unsuitable for water-based spray applications.
  • Avoid high temperature, strong winds, inversion conditions, imminent rain or any conditions that may reduce the quality of spray coverage or result in drift from the target area.
  • Techniques to minimise drift should be employed at all times when aerially applying sprays to, or near, sensitive areas.
  • For optimum results follow the application specifications listed below:
    Ground Spraying: Apply in a minimum of 250 L/ha of water. Increase spray volumes as the crop grows.
    Aerial Spraying: Apply in a minimum of 30 L/ha of water.

Rainfastness:

  • Rain can wash Surefire Preserve 120 SC Insecticide from treated plant surfaces and result in reduced efficacy.
  • Avoid making spray applications if rain is expected before the spray can dry completely.

Precautions:

  • Re-entry Period: Do not enter treated areas until the spray is dry.

Storage:

  • Store in the closed, original container in a cool well-ventilated area.
  • Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

Safety Directions:

  • May irritate the eyes.
  • Avoid contact with eyes.
  • When opening the container, preparing spray and using the prepared spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and elbow-length chemical resistant gloves.
  • Wash hands after use.
  • After each day’s use, wash gloves and contaminated clothing.

First Aid:

  • First aid is not generally required. If in doubt contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 131 126.
