General Instructions AlphaSip Duo 100 Insecticide is a contact and residual insecticide. It can be used as a protective treatment when applied at regular intervals or as a knockdown treatment to control existing infestations.

Insecticide Resistance Warning
For insecticide resistance management AlphaSip Duo 100 Insecticide is a Group 3A insecticide. Some naturally occurring insect biotypes resistant to AlphaSip Duo 100 Insecticide and other Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population. The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if AlphaSip Duo 100 Insecticide or other Group 3A Insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of AlphaSip Duo 100 Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of AlphaSip Duo 100 Insecticide to control resistant insects. AlphaSip Duo 100 Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance management strategies. For further information contact your local supplier, Sipcam Pacific Australia Pty Ltd representative or local department of agriculture agronomist. In NSW and Qld, application of this product to Helicoverpa armigera larvae longer than 5mm may not only be ineffective but it may increase the level of synthetic pyrethroid resistance. This product should NOT be used to treat infestations that were not controlled by an earlier application of it or another synthetic pyrethroid. Infestations not controlled by this product should be treated with an insecticide form another chemical group such as NUDRIN* will assist with the management of synthetic pyrethroid resistant Helicoverpa armigera.
