There were a few changes during the past year in the insecticides registered in New York State for SWD management. Most notably:
- Delegate WG, spinetoram (new product label, 62719-541) no longer needs a 2ee for use on stone fruits, grapes, brambles and blueberries. There is also a supplemental label for blueberries.
- Radiant, spinetoram (new product label, 62719-545) no longer needs a 2ee for use on strawberries.
- Entrust SC, spinosad (new product label, 62719-621) no longer needs a 2ee for use on blueberries.
- Mustang Maxx, zeta-cypermethrin (new product, 279-3426) no longer requires the 2ee for use on stone fruits, grapes, brambles and blueberries.
- Minecto Pro, cyantaniliprole & abamectin (100-1592) is a combination insecticide for use on stone fruits.

Remember, the pesticide label is the law. For example, if you have an older product whose label doesn't have SWD on it, you'll need to have the 2ee that goes with that product label.
