Applications should be made prior to egg hatch to achieve optimum levels of control. This period can normally be anticipated by monitoring for adult (beetle or crane fly) flight activity. When beetle or cranefly adult numbers are at their peak this is when ACELEPRYN should be applied to achieve the best results.
EGG LAYING PERIODS:
Tipula paludosa: Egg laying is likely to start in August and continue through to the end of September.
For optimum control apply Acelepryn when peak crane fly activity is observed, normally from middle of July to end of August. Later applications may not be effective as egg hatch may have already begun.
For Tipula oleracea there are two generations per year with adults emerging August and September and a second generation with adults emerging May to June.
Egg laying can start in May and can continue right through July. This is dependent on the species present and adult flight periods should be monitored to determine the best period for application.
For optimum control apply when peak beetle flight is observed. Later applications may not be effective as egg hatch may have already begun.
NOTE: Some chafer species have 2 or 3 year life cycles with overlapping generations. This means there could be 1st instar larvae and mature 3rd instar larvae in the same location. Where this occurs the mature 3rd instar larvae will not be controlled. In these situations it will require 2-3 years of Acelepryn use to gain full control of the Chafer populations.
|Maximum number of treatments per year
Acelepryn may be applied with all types of spray equipment commonly used for making ground applications. Do not apply through ULV sprayers.
Ensure that the sprayer is clean and set to give the correct volume and an even deposit. Do not allow spray mixture to stand overnight or for prolonged periods. Make up only the amount of spray required for immediate use.
Thoroughly wash all spraying equipment immediately after use using three rinses of clean water.
Tractor-mounted/trailed sprayers: Half fill the spray tank with water and begin agitation. Add the required quantity of Acelepryn to the tank and complete filling. Continue agitation until spraying is completed.
Hand-held knapsack sprayers: Half fill the spray tank with clean water and add the required quantity of Acelepryn to the tank. Complete filling, mix thoroughly and use immediately.
Avoid drift onto adjacent crops.
