Dear Mr. Davis:
Re: FIFRA 2(ee) Recommendation for the use of Talstar Nursery Flowable Insecticide/Miticide
(EPA Reg. No. 279-3155) to control Cicadas on Ornamentals in Greenhouses, Lath Houses, Shade
Houses and Outdoor Nurseries, including Nonbearing Fruit and Nut Trees
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has approved your
FIFRA 2(ee) recommendation to add the target pest, Cicada, for the above-listed product on
ornamentals in greenhouses, lath houses, shade houses and outdoor nurseries, including
nonbearing fruit and nut trees.
In lieu of submitting efficacy data, you stated that the pest, cicada, is currently listed
on your pesticide product, Talstar One Multi-Insecticide (EPA Reg. No. 279-3206). The
percentage of active ingredient, bifenthrin, is the same on both products. The rate of
application is slightly less for Talstar Nursery Flowable (ten to 20 oz/acre) than Talstar
One (10.89 to 21.78 oz/acre). The slight difference in the application rate is not likely to
alter the efficacy of the product.
All restrictions and limitations on the label must be carefully followed. The use rate and
timing must be identical to the New York State registered labels. Anyone treating ornamentals
for control of cicadas must have the recommendation in their possession at the time of
Enclosed is the stamped "accepted" copy of the recommendation as it is to appear in the
Cornell Recommends. If you have any questions regarding this letter, please contact Robin
Hackett, of my staff, at (518) 402-8768.
