The Citation Insecticide is an insect growth regulator that obstructs the lifecycle of damaging dipterous pests such as fungus gnats, shore flies and leaf miners. This insecticide offers an exclusive tool for application within an integrated pest management program on hard to control pests. It effectively reduces the number of insects within one to two weeks after treatment. Citation is certified safe for plants, no known phytotoxicity observed at plant rates. It is great for use on most major ornamental crops in a variety of use sites including indoors, outdoors and interiorscapes. The solution can be applied by means of spray or drench in addition to low-volume application systems such as electrostatic sprayers and thermal foggers.
For control of Dipterous leafminers (Liriomyza spp.), apply 2.66 oz/A in a minimum of 100 gal. of water as a foliar spray to the point of runoff when stippling first appears. Repeat applications at 7-day intervals or as necessary to maintain control. Do not make more than a total of 6 applications to one crop.
For control of fungus gnats (Bradysia spp.) and shore flies (Scatella spp.), apply 2.66 oz of Citation in 100 gal. of water as a spray or drench to all surfaces where insect pests may breed. This includes the potting media surfaces, bench tops, undersides of benches, and the areas under benches that may be contaminated with potting media or algae. Repeat application on a 7- to 14-day schedule to minimize reinfestation.
Citation will not control adult stages of the insect pests. For control of adults, insecticides labeled for adult insect control should be used.
Electrostatic Spraying Systems, Thermal Fogger Systems, or other Low Volume Systems
Citation has been evaluated and shown effective when applied through these application systems. To calculate the amount of product to be applied, use the appropriate amount of Citation for the square footage to be treated with spray as listed. The amount of carrier (water) is dependent on the amount needed for adequate coverage.
Citation Insecticide is not registered for use in all states. Check to be sure if a specific use pattern is approved in your area before use. Contact your local state agency for more information.
