Assessment Topic

Use of carbaryl on grapes has raised health risk concerns for farm workers entering vineyards following an application. The re-entry interval (REI) that would reduce exposure to levels at or below concern is 10 to 14 days. Carbaryl is used mainly on grapes east of the Rocky Mountains for control of the grape berry moth and the grape leaf roller. It is a broad-spectrum insecticide that also controls a number of secondary pests.
