USE SUMMARY
For control of insect pests, apply either as foliar broadcast spray, basal bark or injection treatment. For optimum control, allow at least 6 hours before overhead irrigation of foliage. Do not allow public use of treated area during application.

FOR FOLIAR BROADCAST SPRAYS: Mix TriStar 8.5 SL with sufficient water and apply as a foliar spray to obtain thorough and uniform spray coverage of the plants. Choose a finished spray volume appropriate for the size of the plants and amount of foliage which will provide thorough coverage throughout the canopy. Apply as soon as insects reach treatment thresholds.

FOR BASAL BARK TREATMENT OF TREES (ornamental or non-bearing fruit or nut): Using a low pressure (10-25 PSI), small volume handcan or backpack sprayer, mix 12.5-25.3 oz of TriStar 8.5 SL per gallon of water with an organo-silicate adjuvant according to the adjuvant product instructions. One gallon should treat approximately 36-42 total inches of treatment DBH depending on bark surface. Do not apply to wet bark, during rainfall, or if rain is expected within 12 hours after application. Do not apply as a drench to the soil.

FOR TREE INJECTION APPLICATION (ornamental or non-bearing fruit or nut): Mix 9-12 milliliters (mL) of TriStar 8.5 SL per inch DBH of target tree in sufficient water for use following the manufacturer’s instructions for the specific injection device.
