Lawn armyworm
(Spodoptera mauritia)
60kg/ha
600g/100m2

Broadcast MaxGuard 2G with suitable application equipment to ensure uniform coverage over the treated area. 

To ensure optimum control, irrigate the treated area with up to 4mm of water soon after application.

Inspect the treated areas for continuing activity. Reapply as required. 

Where a rate range is indicated use lower rates under lower inspect pressure and higher rates under higher insect pressure. 

Sod webworm
(Herpetogramma licarsisalis)
60kg/ha
600g/100m2
Cutworm 
(Agrotis sp.)
60kg/ha

(Listronotus gonariensis)

60 to 120kg/ha
600-1.2kg/100m2

African black beetle adults 
(Heteronychus arator)

1.2-1.8kg/100m2
Billlbug adults

Black and, Coastal brown ant, Funnel ant, Mean ant, Sugar ant and Stinging ant only 60-220kg/ha
600-2.2kg/100m2

Apply granules to areas where ants are active. Where possible, apply granules directly to the nest. Use the low rate for maintenance treatments or to control light infestations and the high rate for heavy infestations and for maximum residual control. 

The elimination of Funnel ants froma particular site will generally require more than one application. Intital applications should be broadcast over affected areas. As the inital numbers of active colonies is reduced, appilcations should shift to targeting active mounds. 

Apply granules directly to the mounds and in the area immediately surrounding active mounds (300mm radius)

Maxguard 2G is a fast-acting, contact insecticide in a granular form.
