Can Hi-Yield 55% Malathion Insecticide Spray help to control bark beetle for Pinion?

I want to get a head start on the bark bettle control. Does this work for them on Pinion trees?


Hi-Yield 55% Malathion Insecticide Spray is not labeled for bark beetle. The best product for pine bark beetles is Permethrin SFR 36.8%. The biggest key with this insect is timing to ensure the infestation doesn't get out of hand. Once the tree is infested there isnt much you can do other than chop down the tree and burn it to try and prevent the current live ones from getting into any neighboring trees.
