Can Ferti-lome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench be used on Elm trees for Elm Seed Beetles?

We have an infestation of elm seed beetles (not leaf beetles). Our small Motel has been fighting them for quite awhile in Southwest Idaho. We just moved here in November and have had them all winter indoors. Guests think they are cockroaches, not native to Idaho, or bedbugs- they panic. For me, the worst part is that my log home on the property is showing signs of infestation (we find at least 20 beetles a day, and have woken up with them in our bed). I just found your product while looking for an outdoor lawn insecticide and am feeling incredibly hopeful. Will this prevent the bugs from breeding in our giant elms? We will also be treating the yard, interior and exterior of our buildings. My hope is to prevent them from returning as we destroy the living.


Ferti-lome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench is not labeled for Elm Seed Beetles.
