10 packets/1.2 ha
or
1 packet/1200 m2

For optimum control, make application prior to egg hatch of the target pest(s). Consult your local Agricultural (Horticultural) Advisor for more specific information regarding timing of application.

* For suppression of early fall larval stages of crane fly (larvae known as leatherjackets) apply Merit Solupak Insecticide to turfgrass areas known to be infected with leatherjackets. Application timing should commence when adult crane flies take flight in August and September and begin laying eggs.

Best Practices

For optimum control, irrigation or rainfall should occur within 24 hours after application to move the active ingredient through the thatch. On golf courses, irrigate treated areas following application. Avoid mowing turf or lawn area until after irrigation or rainfall has occurred so that uniformity of application will not be affected. Apply Merit Solupak Insecticide only once per year as directed by this label. If an application of Merit Solupak Insecticide was applied to a turfgrass area earlier in the summer season for Japanese beetle or European chafer or black turfgrass ataenius, do not re-apply for leatherjacket suppression in the same year.
