Pest management recommendations provide up-to-date information on pesticides and their applicability to your problem. We suggest that you use this information to set up your own spray program. You should include space for records in the program, such as materials used; date of application; stage of growth; and weather. In case of questions, nothing beats a good set of records, and records are required for restricted-use pesticides.
