    Positive Results

    By Tim on 03/15/2013

    I have been using this product for over 4 years and and have found it very effective in most of my applications. It seems to be especially effective against mites and aphids. It is 100% effective on mites on azaleas and aphids on my podocarpus and sweet viburnum. It is truly a once a year product. I treat in March in Florida and have absolutely no pest problems the entire year. Prior to this the aphids were out of control on the podocarpus. I did find it ineffective on white scale that is infesting the sago palms.

    I have two green ash trees in my front yard. They both have been hit by the emerald ash borers. So far having the horticulturist has injected the trees in the spring and following his directions to follow up with this product has kept my trees alive.

    borers in my trees

    By Anonymous on 06/04/2013

    Well, so far the stuff seems to be working !! I have 80 Arizona Cypress trees we use for windbreaks... I had 'em trimmed last year, and all of a sudden I noticed limbs dying out... I was told that it was borers, and that's when I decided to purchase the Bayer Advanced formula... We'll let you know when we do next year's treatment !! Paul

    Woolly Adelgids

    By Anonymous on 06/21/2013

    Verified Purchase

    My hemlock hedges have been infected by woolly adelgids, and I just applied this product to the some 20 trees involved, in hope of stopping the damage. The process to apply it was fairly easy, but its results won't be known for months, as the white cocoons do not fall off, even if the adelgids are killed. I give 4 stars here, reflecting the application process, but I can't rate the product efficiency until I can verify that the infestation has stopped. It better works, as it is very expensive !

    Product Use

    By Paul on 04/20/2015

    Verified Purchase

    I live in Precott, AZ in about one acre piece of property in which 28 established native pine and juniper trees and some 20 shrubs have to be treated yearly. Previously we sprayed these trees and shrubs and the success was always limited. The systemic method is by far the only way to go. If you follow the instructions provided with the product, I am confident that 100% of the applied chemical will reach the roots and subsequently the branches, needles and/or leaves will be treated and provide healthy specimens. I found it beneficial to pre-soak the ground well the day before you apply the chemical and again after the treatment in order to allow for the active ingredient to penetrate into the soil. Spraying your trees is a waste of at least 30% of whatever you are applying, plus the fact that you might be breathing and inhaling some of the toxic chemical intended to kill insects, not humans. Furthermore, you don't have to be a math genious, this product is almost 3.0% concentrate, nearly 3x the concentration of the product sold in the large box stores.

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
What is the shelf life of Bayer Advanced 12 Month Tree & Shrub Insect Control?

How long will the product stay effective after opening? A one-gallon container is a lot of material for me. I suspect that I would only use about half of it the first time and the second half twelve months later. Will the product still be effective?

A
You can expect the product to stay effective for at least 3 years from the date of purchase if it is stored properly. Keep out of direct sunlight and out of extreme temperatures.
