CruiserMaxx® Alfalfa is an on-seed application of Cruiser Alfalfa insecticide and Apron XL and Maxim 4FS fungicides. Pollinator Precautions: Thiamethoxam, the active ingredient in Cruiser Alfalfa, is highly toxic to bees, and effects are possible as a result of exposure to translocated residues in blooming crops. To mitigate this potential exposure, the first cutting of alfalfa should occur before bloom.
