For the control of Argentine Stem Weevil adults and larvae, and Lepidoptera grub larvae in turf.

PROVAUNT Turf Insecticide targets and destroys both adult and larvae including the critical 3rd and 4th Instars. This powerful unique chemistry can be used preventatively and curatively to shut down the Argentine Stem Weevil (ASW) life cycle. PROVAUNT delivers excellent curative performance, with optimal results achieved when applications are made before population numbers build to damaging levels. For Argentine Stem Weevil adults applications should be made with the appearance of over wintering adult pests. A second application should be made early summer to treat adults and stem feeding larvae. For Lepidoptera grubs an application should be made as soon as activity is detected.

Re-entry Period

  • DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray has dried.

Precautionary Statements

  • This product is a registered agricultural chemical and must, therefore, be used in accordance with the container label directions.
  • Each user should read this SDS and consider the information in the context of how the product will be handled and used in the workplace including in conjunction with other products.
  • FIRST AID: If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone 131 126.

Personal Protective Equipment

  • Harmful if swallowed. When opening the container, preparing spray and using the prepared spray, wear cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing). Wash hands after use. After each day’s use, wash contaminated clothing.

Tank mixing

Prior to mixing, start with clean, well maintained application equipment. Fill spray tank to ¼ to ½ full of water. Measure the amount of PROVAUNT required for the area to be sprayed. Add PROVAUNT directly to spray tank with the agitation engaged. Mix thoroughly to disperse the insecticide. Once dispersed, the material must be kept in suspension at all times by continuous agitation. Use mechanical or hydraulic means, DO NOT use air agitation, premix or slurry. If spray solution is left standing, ensure thorough re-agitation of the spray mix until fully re-suspended. DO NOT allow spray mix to sit overnight, as re-suspension maybe difficult.

Water volume

Apply using coarse droplets (minimum) using Air induction 04 nozzles. Spray with at least 400 L of water/ha to ensure even coverage.
