Can Merit Insecticide Granules be used to treat scale on shrubs?

I have scale on some large holly trees. I heard the chemical in Merit would treat for them. Looking for something I can pour on the ground above the roots. (Systemic)


Merit 75 WP - 2 oz. jar will treat scale insects. It would be better to use Merit 75 versus the granule. You can apply this product as a soil injection or soil drench around the base, for the root system to soak up and translocate up. Please refer to the Merit 75 Wp product page, as we have listed the applications to trees and shurbs. Also, be sure to refer to the product label for application as well.
