APPLAUD® 70DF insect growth regulator contains the active ingredient, buprofezin. It is effective against the
nymph stages of scales and immature stages of other molting insects by inhibiting chitin biosynthesis. Buprofezin
also suppresses oviposition of adults and reduces viability of eggs. Treated susceptible pests may remain alive
on the plant for 3-7 days, but feeding damage during this time is typically very low. APPLAUD 70DF is not
disruptive to beneficial insects and mites.
Good coverage is essential. Apply by ground in sufficient water volume. Orient nozzles to assure good
coverage. Use of higher volume of water will assure better coverage, especially under adverse conditions such
as hot, dry weather, and/or a dense canopy.
Apply when economic infestations occur based on local information.
