Macho® 4.0 FL

Macho® 4.0 FL

Macho® 4.0 FL is a systemic insecticide that, when applied to the soil, moves from the plant’s root system to the upper vegetative parts via the xylem tissue. This results in extended insecticidal activity to control pests that can vector detrimental virus transmission. Macho® 4.0 FL can be applied to a variety of crops to provide selective control of many key sucking and piercing insects.

Directions for use

It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. For any requirements specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation. See individual crops for specific pollinator protection application restrictions. If none exist under the specific crop, for foliar applications, follow these application directions for crops that are contracted to have pollinator services or for food/feed & commercially grown ornamentals that are attractive to pollinators:

1. FOR CROPS UNDER CONTRACTED POLLINATION SERVICES 

Do not apply this product while bees are foraging. Do not apply this product until flowering is complete If an application must be made when managed bees are at the treatment site, the beekeeper providing the pollination services must be notified no less than 48-hours prior to the time of the planned application so that the bees can be removed, covered or otherwise protected prior to spraying.

2. FOR FOOD CROPS AND COMMERCIALLY GROWN ORNAMENTALS NOT UNDER CONTRACT FOR POLLINATION SERVICES BUT ARE ATTRACTIVE TO POLLINATORS

Do not apply this product while bees are foraging. Do not apply this product until flowering is complete and all petals have fallen unless one of the following conditions is met:

  • The application is made to the target site after sunset.
  • The application is made to the target site when temperatures are below 55°F The application is made in accordance with a government-initiated public health response.
  • The application is made in accordance with an active state-administered apiary registry program where beekeepers are notified no less than 48-hours prior to the time of the planned application so that the bees can be removed, covered or otherwise protected prior to spraying.
  • The application is made due to an imminent threat of significant crop loss, and a documented determination consistent with an IPM plan or predetermined economic threshold is met. Every effort should be made to notify beekeepers no less than 48-hours prior to the time of the planned application so that the bees can be removed, covered or otherwise protected prior to spraying.
