Symptoms
 
  • Apathetic state, depressed muscular tone, respiratory disturbances and trembling and muscular cramps in severe cases of poisoning.

Resistance Management
 
  • For resistance management, Calypso 480 SC is a group code 4A insecticide. Any insect population may contain individuals naturally resistant to Calypso 480 SC and other group code 4A insecticides. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if these insecticides are used repeatedly. These resistant insects may not be controlled by Calypso 480 SC or any other group code 4A insecticides.
  • To delay insecticide resistance:
    • Avoid exclusive repeated use of insecticides from the same insecticide group code.

    • Alternate with products from different insecticide group codes.

    • Do not apply Calypso 480 SC more than once per year on citrus.

    • Integrate other control methods (chemical, cultural, biological) into insect control programs.
  • For specific information on resistance management contact the registration holder of this product.

 


Precautions
 
  • Do not inhale fumes.
  • Wash contaminated clothing daily.
  • Wash with soap and water after use or accidental skin contact.
  • Do not eat, drink or smoke whilst mixing, applying or before washing hands and face.
  • Clean applicator after use, dispose of wash water where it will not contaminate crops, grazing, rivers and dams.
  • Rinse empty container three times with a volume of water equal to at least one tenth of that of the container and add the rinsings to the contents of the tank before disposing of the container in the prescribed manner.
  • Destroy empty container by perforation and flattening and never use for any other purpose.
  • Prevent contamination of food, feedstuffs, drinking water and eating utensils.
