    Ok here is some sunshine. Pesticides are either RUP (Restricted Use Pesticides) or GUP (General Use Pesticides). RUP can only be purchased by Certified companies and must be signed for. RUP products must be Documented on every drop or grain of the product and where it is applied.

    GUP products may be purchased by anyone and there is no record keeping requirement.

    I guess that info is on page one of the pdf. for the various chemicals? There is so much info on those sheets for the chemicals that I would need a master degree to read them.

    Ok thanks I promise I won't come over into the Florida section any more.

    I'm no chemical applicator guru but it may have something to do with agriculture practices -sugarcane agronomy- as opposed to turf.


    Preventive control requires the use of long residual insecticides, such as imidacloprid (Merit®, Season-Long Grub Control®), thiamethoxam (Meridian®), halofenozide (Mach2®, Ortho Grub-B-Gon®, Grub-Ex®), clothianidin (Arena®), or chlorantraniliprole (Acelepryn®). These products give good control of newly hatched grubs. The best application period is during the month or so before egg hatch until the time when very young grubs are present. Preventive control requires the use of long residual insecticides. Professional combination products (e.g., Allectus®, Aloft®) have a pyrethroid and a neonicotinoid insecticide premixed together, which could be used to try to reduce both adult and larval populations.
