Important Information


    ​Dime is very broad spectrum and can be used over a wide variety of crops to control many insect pests. Dime should be applied as a high volume spray using sufficient water to ensure complete and even coverage of the trees or crop. Spraying should be conducted during fine, still weather conditions - delay spraying if rain appears imminent.

    • For application on plants with waxy surfaces (brassica) the addition of a wetting agent such as Collaborate is reccommended.
    • Do not Spray Meyer lemons, apricots, early ripening peaches, or chrysanthemums.

    For full application details and rates, please refer to the product label.


    Dime is a systemic insecticide with the added advantage of contact action to give rapid kill of insect pests hit by the spray at the time of application.



    • Do not store near heat or flame
    • Keep out of reach of children
    • Store in accordance with NZS 8409 Management of Agrichemicals. Store in original container tightly closed in a locked, dry, cool, dark, well ventilated area away from sources of heat and ignition, foodstuffs, fertilizers and seeds

    Partly fill spray tank with clean water, add the required amount of Dime and complete filling of the tank, whille agitating, to ensure the solution is well mixed. Delay adding any wetting agent until tank is almost full. Keep the water filling hose below the surface to prevent excessive foaming.

    Dime is compatible with most neutral pesticides, but should not be mixed with alkaline substances such as Bordeaux mixture and lime or sulphur.
