SAFETY FIRST!! In all cases, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND spraying fungicides, pesticides, or miticides ONLY with proper protective gear. This includes a respirator, goggles and chemical resistant gloves at a minimum. You should also take proper precaution to cover your arms and legs with long pants and long sleeve shirt or with a chemical resistant suit such as Tyvek. Authority Hydro accepts no responsibility for improper application of products.
PRODUCT USE!! The chemical pesticides we sell at Authority Hydro are intended for use in turf and ornamental applications. While many of the products are labeled, approved, and commonly used for other plants, we highly recommend the customer read the label carefully to ensure proper use in all cases. When in doubt, we recommend you contact the manufacturer with questions regarding other plants or uses.

Considering generics? First, weigh the risks. Formulating a miticide/insecticide product with abamectin is a highly complex process. Loss of the chemical’s full efficacy is a constant risk. While the generics compare themselves to Avid, Syngenta is the original developer and has the only patented and proven purification process that filters out the less-active avermectin strains, leaving only the most potent active ingredient for the highest level of pest control. You’ve only got one chance to get mites under control. So, make it count.
