Pre-mixed pesticide combinations
Commercially packaged insecticide premixes should not be used in commercial orchard crops from a pesticide resistance management perspective. To prolong the effectiveness of insecticides, an effective insect resistance management program must be part of an IPM program that involves sampling and monitoring, treatment thresholds, biological and cultural control. Do not use pesticides with the same mode of action on back-to-back generations of a pest. Home orchardists should seek to identify specific pests and select appropriate pesticides for the targeted pest.

Protect pollinators: Warning: Many pesticides are hazardous to bees. Look for bee precautionary statements on product labels and do not use these products during bloom or if bees are foraging in the orchard. See How to Reduce Bee Poisoning from Pesticides.
