Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus and Vegetable Insect Control will move through treated plants in one week to 3 months (for very large trees), so treatment is typically done in the spring before summer pests are found in the area. If you are treating very large trees in an area with a long growing season, then you could potentially treat in the fall so that the product will be absorbed throught the entire plant by spring. Per the product label, since there is no specific pre-harvest interval for citrus, it can be applied anytime on listed citrus trees, with a maximum application of once per year.
No, Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus and Vegetable Insect Control is only labeled for outdoor residential use only. This product cannot be used in any type of potted plants.
