Exirel insecticide label expanded

The Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has announced the approval of an URMULE registration for Exirel insecticide for control of carrot weevil on subgroup 1B, root vegetables in Canada. Exirel insecticide was already labeled for use on a number of crops in Canada for control of several pests. 

 

This minor use project was submitted by MAPAQ (Quebec ministry of agriculture) as a result of minor use priorities established by growers and extension personnel. 

 

The following is provided as an abbreviated, general outline only. Users should be making pest management decisions within a robust integrated disease management program and should consult the complete label before using Exirel insecticide.

 

 

Exirel insecticide is toxic to aquatic organisms, bees and certain beneficial insects and non-target terrestrial plants. DO NOT apply this product to blooming crops or weeds while bees are actively visiting the treatment area. Apply early in the morning or late in the evening when bees are less active. Minimize spray drift to reduce harmful effects on bees in habitats close to the application site. Do not contaminate aquatic habitats when spraying or when cleaning and rinsing spray equipment or containers. 

 

Follow all precautions and detailed directions for use on the Exirel insecticide label carefully.
