ArVida 70 WP

Control Harmful Pests at All Life Stages to Protect Your Crops

ArVida 70 WP Insecticide contains acetamiprid, the active ingredient used in Assail® 70 WP Insecticide.


ArVida 70™ WP Insecticide is a viable, EPA-recognized and USDA field-proven alternative where pollination impact is a concern. It provides immediate and long-lasting residual control from sucking and chewing insects on a broad range of crops. The active ingredient works on contact and through ingestion to control harmful insects at all life stages. ArVida 70 WP rapidly absorbs into the plant tissue and immediately moves via systemic and translaminar activity, providing protection to the entire leaf. 

ArVida 70 WP can be used alone or makes an excellent tank-mix partner to be used as part of a resistance management program. Once dry, ArVida 70 WP remains effective following rain or irrigation.

Application Information:

Apply ArVida 70 WP when treatment thresholds for insect populations are reached. Product quickly dissolves in water to form a spray mixture, to be applied via ground or air. For optimal control, calibrate and adjust equipment to create uniform and thorough spray coverage of the crop. ArVida 70 WP can be used alone or utilized in IPM programs.


Mixing Instructions:

When tank mixing ArVida 70 WP with other products, add them in the following sequence:

1. Prepare only the amount of spray mixture needed for that day’s application

2. Fill the tank ¼ - ½ full with the total amount of water to be used

3. Start agitation in the tank and add the required amount of ArVida 70 WP. Shake the jug to fluff the product prior to measuring. Refrain from tamping down the product when using the measuring cone because the cone is calibrated to the fluffed product

4. Direct a stream of water onto any floating product as the tank is being filled to assist in mixing

5. Mix in tank for 2 minutes or until a thorough mixture is achieved prior to applying

6. Be sure to maintain constant agitation in the solution tank before and during the application to assure an even suspension. Agitate the mixture before use for 10 minutes if the solution sits stationary for an extended period of time

7. Equip the spray system with a 50-mesh in-line filter. This will protect typically-used nozzles. Spray nozzles may also be equipped with nozzle filters (50-mesh) or slotted nozzle filters (25- to 50-mesh equivalent)

8. Buffer water to attain an optimal pH range to aid stability in water with a low pH (below 4) or high pH (above 9)
