    The subject contains most of my question, but how long after spraying 2-4,d Ester is volatility a problem? Put another way, how long before the day time temp can exceed 75 degrees after spraying ThreeWay Ester?

    I haven't used three-way ester, nor read the label, in quite a while but it is my understanding that after the product has dried volatility shouldn't be a problem.

    Be careful with esters. Other factors play rolls in volatilization.

    Why would you need an ester this time of year.Find some trimec 992 and add a little cygnet if control now is slow in tennessee.
