DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW TO USE THIS PRODUCT IN A MANNER INCONSISTENT WITH ITS LABELING.
Not for use on plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes. For use on
plants intended for aesthetic purposes or climatic modification and being grown in interior plantscapes, ornamental gardens or parks, or on golf
courses or lawns or grounds.
Protective eyewear and chemical resistant gloves must be worn while handling or installing the capsule to prevent accidental contact with the
eyes or skin.
ABACIDE insecticide is intended for use by commercial Arborists (applicators) on forest and ornamental trees for control of SPIDER MITES,
LEAF MINERS, ELM LEAF BEETLE, SYCAMORE LACE BUG AND FALL WEB WORM. It can be applied in commercial or residential land-
scapes, interior and exterior plantscapes and other areas where ornamental trees and woody shrubs are grown.
1. THE MAUGET SYSTEM
(A) Mauget compressible capsule with insert hole.
(B) Feeder tube with flanged gun-sight and opposite tapered beveled end
(A) Portable Electric Drill
(B) 11/64 in. (0.4 cm) drill bit
(C) Plastic Mallet
(D) Tape Measure
(E) Personal Protective Equipment (see above)
3. NUMBER OF CAPSULES
Measure the tree at chest height in inches. If measuring the circumference, divide this number by six (6) to determine the number of capsules
needed. If measuring the diameter, divide this number by 2 (two) to determine the number of capsules needed. If the number of capsules re-
sults in a fraction, use the next higher integer if the fraction is 1/2 or above and the next lower integer if the fraction is less than 1/2.
4. PRESSURIZING THE Capsule
Place the capsule on a firm flat surface and compress by foot force or hand force or under some conditions with a plastic or rubber mallet.
5. DRILLING THE TREE HOLE
Pre-drill spaced injection sites at a downward angle at the root flair (approximately 6.0 to 8.0 in., 15 to 20 cm) above ground level, using a clean
11/64 in. (0.4 cm) drill bit. Drill to a depth of 3/8 to 1/2 in. (0.95 to 1.3 cm) into healthy xylem tissue under the bark. For mini-microfeeder tube,
see Step 10. Disinfect drill bit as well as mini-micro insertion tool prior to use on each tree.
6. TREE HOLE DEPTH
It is important that the feeder tube be set to the proper depth in the conductive xylem tissue. If set too deeply, flow is restricted by blockage in
the heartwood; if set too shallow, leakage may occur. The feeder tube dispensing end is beveled to allow for a 1/4 in. plus tolerance.
7. COMBINING Capsule AND FEEDER TUBE
Place by hand, the feeder tube鈥檚 flange end, with the flange notch upward, into the capsule insert hole of a compressed upright capsule cap-
sule. Push the flange end of the feeder tube flush with the membrane at the inner end of the insert hole.
8. PLACING THE FEEDER TUBE IN THE TREE
Firmly seat the beveled, dispensing end of the feeder tube, with the attached upright capsule capsule, into the pre-drilled tree injection hole.
Tap the outer side of the capsule capsule directly behind the feeder tube with a plastic mallet while supporting the capsule with the other hand.
This action will simultaneously seat the feeder tube in the injection hole while breaking the capsule membrane for releasing the capsule con-
tents into the feeder tube and into the tree.
Uptake in the tree usually occurs within several minutes. Capsules may be temporarily rotated in place to see if any liquid is left. When empty,
turn the capsules upside down for one minute before removal. Applicators must remove capsules promptly after treatment. Empty capsules
must not be left on the tree. The health and species of the tree, and local environmental conditions will determine the rate of uptake. Trees in
advanced stages of insect infestations may not respond to treatment. If the capsule capsule does not completely empty within a few hours,
invert and carefully remove the capsule and enclose it in a heavy duty plastic bag for disposal in accordance with state and local regulations.
10. MINI-MICRO FEEDER TUBE
For established trees with thin bark (less than 3/8 in. thickness), use a 7/64 in. drill bit to produce a micro-injection site for a mini-micro feeder
