NOTE TO PHYSICIAN
Early signs of intoxication include dilation of pupils, muscular
incoordination, and muscular tremors. Toxicity following accidental
ingestion of Abacide 2 can be minimized by early administration of
鈩? chemical absorbents (e.g., activated charcoal). If toxicity from
ABACIDE 2 exposure has progressed to cause severe vomiting, the extent of
resultant fluid and electrolyte imbalance should be gauged.
Appropriate supportive parental fluid replacement therapy should be
given, along with other required supportive measures (such as

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW TO USE THIS PRODUCT IN A MANNER INCONSISTENT WITH ITS LABELING.
For terrestrial uses. Due to toxicity to bees, use for tree micro-injection only as a post-bloom application. Do not inject trees that are less than two inches in
diameter. This product is NOT to be used on trees which will produce food within the year following treatment.
ABACIDE 2 insecticide is intended for use by commercial Arborist (applicators) on forest, woodlands, Christmas and ornamental trees for control of SPIDER
MITES, LEAF MINERS, ELM LEAF BEETLE, SYCAMORE LACE BUG, AND LEPIDOPTERA INSECTS such as FALL WEB WORM and EASTERN TENT
CATERPILLAR and suppression of APHIDS, THRIPS, AND WHITEFLIES. For control of PINE NEMATODE (Pine Wilt), use 4 - 6 ml every 4鈥? of trunk
circumference measured within 12鈥? of the ground (not registered in California for control of Pine Wilt). It can also be applied in commercial or residential
landscapes, interior and exterior plantscapes, and other areas where ornamental trees and woody shrubs are grown. Applications made during the spring or
summer will be more successful than those made in the fall. Applications can be made prior to pest appearance or after they are observed. A single application is
anticipated to last one growing season, but it may be necessary to make applications two or more times per year under severe pest pressure.
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) Insertion tool (optional)
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 results in a fraction, round down to
the lower whole number.
Use the following dosage, per capsule, depending on tree diameter.
2 mL capsules 鈥? 2 to 10 inches DBH
3 mL capsules 鈥? 10-36 inches DBH
4 mL capsules 鈥? 36 inches DBH and above
For heavier infestation and/or more persistent insects, use the 3 mL and 4 mL capsules on trees having a DBH of 2 inches and above. Trees in advanced stages
of insect infestation and/or disease development, may not respond to treatment. The health, species of the tree and the environmental conditions will determine
the rate of uptake.
4. PRESSURIZING THE CAPSULES
Apply the appropriate amount of pressure on the top of the capsule in order to compress.
5. DRILLING THE TREE HOLE
Predrill spaced injection sites at a slight downward angle at the root flair/buttress area (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 (except monocotyledons, conifers, etc.). 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-micro feeder tube, see Step 10. Disinfect drill bit, insertion tool (if used) 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
Several methods of combining the capsule with the feeder tube are acceptable including placing by hand, the feeder tube鈥檚 flange end, with the flange notch
upward, into the capsule insert hole of a compressed upright capsule. Push the flange end of the feeder tube flush with the membrane located 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, into the predrilled tree injection hole. Tap the rear side, opposite the
insert hole of the capsule with a mallet. This action will simultaneously seat the feeder tube in the injection hole while breaking the capsule membrane for releasing
the capsule contents into the feeder tube and into the tree. Another method is to place the feeder tube in the predrilled hole of the tree using the optional insertion
tool. Then place the compressed capsule onto the feeder tube in place.
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 micro-injectors 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. If the 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 tube.
Use of the Mini-Micro Insertion tool is recommended.
