    Cured Scale Insect Problem on Key Lime Fast

    By Anthony on 07/08/2014

    Verified Purchase

    I bought this because I heard that it was one of the very few treatments for scale insects. My Key Lime tree had not been bearing fruit and seemed stagnant as far as new growth is concerned. I discovered that the stems were covered with tiny brown scale insects. The leaves were tell-tale: they were covered with a shiny, wax-like coating which the insects secrete to protect themselves making them impervious to ordinary insecticides. The Bayer treatment is systemic, being drawn up through the roots and poisons these pests from the inside. In a matter of a few days the scale insects were dead and could be easily removed. This stuff is a miracle!

    Great for the Control of Scale Insects on Citrus

    By Anthony on 07/20/2014

    Verified Purchase

    Scale insects are among THE most difficult to control. They attach themselves to the stems and leaves of plants and secrete a shellac-like material that makes them largely impervious to sprayed-on treatments. I had a Kumquat and Key Lime tree that were infested. It was hard to tell the insects were there except for the tell-tale presence of the coating on some of the leaves; they were shiny, while others were naturally dull. The Bayer Insect Control is systemic meaning that you dilute it with water and feed it to the plant. Then it poisons the insects via the juice and sap they suck out of the plant. Within a week of treatment the scale insects were dead and could be flaked off the trees. FANTASTIC!

    By Bill on 09/01/2014

    Verified Purchase

    The citrus trees I purchased came with a tag saying it was treated with this type of treatment and recommended a follow up treatment after the expiration date as on the tag. It was recommended by the state of Florida. Only time will tell if it does it's job.

    It Works on leafminers.

    By Dogman on 03/27/2017

    Tried 3 different sprays for 6 months with no success on leafminers that were slowly destroying my satsuma tree. This product by Bayer seems to have them in check shortly after application.
