Notes:

LARVAE SIZE - Larvae greater than 5 mm are often not controlled

satisfactorily as they are harder to kill and they are often protected from

spray by the plant.

RESISTANCE - The effectiveness of this product may be reduced or

nullified as a result of pests developing a tolerance or resistance to the

product. If unacceptable control occurs, immediately contact your local

company representative. This product should not be used where a user

suspects the presence of significant numbers of tolerant or resistant

strain.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Insecticide Resistance Warning

GROUP

3A

INSECTICIDE

insecticide

resistance

management,

Deltashield

Group

Insecticide.

Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to Deltashield 5.5 Insecticide

and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in

any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the

insect population if Deltashield 5.5 or other Group 3A insecticid3es are used

repeatedly. The effectiveness of Deltashield 5.5 on resistant individuals could be

significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to

detect prior to use, ChemAg Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may

result from the failure of Deltashield 5.5 to control resistant insects.

Deltashield 5.5 may be subject to specific resistance management strategies.

For further information contact your local supplier, ChemAg representative or

local agricultural agronomist.

Export of Treated Produce

Growers should note that suitable MRL’s or import tolerances may not be

established in all markets for produce treated with Deltashield 5.5 Insecticide. If

you are growing produce for export, please check with ChemAg Pty Ltd for the

latest information on MRL’s and import tolerances BEFORE using Deltashield

5.5.

15/12/99 Page 7 of

Application/Equipment

Deltashield 5.5 Insecticide must only be applied by aircraft fitted with accurately

calibrated ULV equipment, eg. Micronair AU5000 atomisers. To minimise drift it

is essential to produce a suitable spray droplet diameter (volume mean diameter)

by controlling the rotational speed of the atomisers. It is recommended that the

application parameters in terms of plane speed and blade angle settings are

adjusted to deliver a maximum rotational speed of 3000 rpm and a resultant

droplet

diameter

approximately

microns.

Rotational

speed

atomisers can be measured by the fitment and maintenance of transducers.

Thorough coverage is essential.

DO NOT add water – use direct from container.

Compatibility

DELTASHIELD 5.5 INSECTICIDE should preferable be applied alone, but it can

be mixed with most piperonyl butoxide formulations and most commonly used

ULV insecticides, methomyl LV (eg. Methomex®,), Ovasyn™ ULV and certain

EC formulations, if well mixed and used immediately. Do not mix with water.

PRECAUTIONS

RE-entry Period

Do Not allow entry into treated areas until the spray deposits have dried. When

prior entry is necessary, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist and

elbow-length PVC gloves. Clothing must be laundered after each day’s use.

Protection of Livestock

Dangerous to bees. DO NOT spray on any plants in flower while bees are

foraging. Some repellent effect may be apparent for approximately 2 days.

Protection of Wildlife, Fish, Crustaceans and Environment

Dangerous to fish. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the

chemical or used containers.

Drift Warning

DO NOT apply under meteorological conditions or from spraying equipment,

which could be expected to cause spray to drift onto adjacent crops, crop lands,

pastures or livestock.

Storage and Disposal

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well-ventilated area (below 30

degrees Celsius). Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

Triple or (preferably) pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to

spray tank. Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on-site. If recycling return

clean containers to recycler or point of sale.

If not recycling, break, crush or puncture and bury empty containers in a local

authority landfill. If not available, bury empty containers below 500 mm in a

15/12/99 Page 8 of

disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways,

vegetation and roots. Empty containers and products should not be burnt.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS

Facial skin contact may cause temporary facial numbness. Product will irritate

the eyes and skin. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. When preparing product for

use wear elbow-length PVC gloves and face shield. If product in eyes, wash it

out immediately with water. Wash hands after use. After each day’s use, wash

gloves and face shield.

FIRST AID

If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre (Ph 131126).

If swallowed, do NOT include vomiting. Give a glass of water.

Advice to Physician

No antidote is available and treatment should be symptomatic.
