NOTE TO PHYSICIAN
Early signs of intoxication include dilation of pupils, muscular incoordination,
and muscular tremors. Toxicity following accidental ingestion of Abasol can
be minimized by early administration of chemical absorbents (e.g., activated
charcoal). If toxicity from exposure has progressed to cause severe
鈩? vomiting, the extent of resultant fluid and electrolyte imbalance should be
ABASOL gauged. Appropriate supportive parental fluid replacement therapy should
be given, along with other required supportive measures (such as
maintenance of blood pressure levels and proper respiratory functionality) as
indicated by clinical signs, symptoms, and measurements. In severe cases,
observations should continue for at least several days until clinical condition

IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW TO USE THIS PRODUCT IN A MANNER INCONSISTENT WITH ITS LABELING.
Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in
the area during application. For any requirement specific to your State or Tribe, consult the agency responsible for pesticide regulation.
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.
Make application when disease first appears. Repeat treatment if disease symptoms progress. Do not repeat within 3 months of first
application. Some diseases may require repeated yearly application. Therapeutic treatments are made as soon as possible after flagging

For treatment of Dutch Elm Disease and Oak Wilt: Preventative application is more effective than therapeutic treatment in trees showing
disease symptoms. Trees in advanced stages of disease development may not respond to treatment. Healthy trees under optimum
conditions will absorb the full contents promptly. Infected trees will absorb the material more slowly due to the vascular plugging caused by the
disease. If Abasol is not absorbed within 24 hours, the tree is considered high risk and has a poor chance of survival.

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.
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.
