Field trials have shown that Tedion is best used as a preventative spray, not as a curative treatment when mites are at treatment level. Seasonal programs should be planned for individual situations. If materials applied for other pests hold mites in check, Tedion can be used later in the season. If not, the material is best applied early, when weather conditions are less favorable for rapid mite increase.
