I have 75 tropical hybrid hibiscus with severe aphid infestation. Is this product too potent for then;20%?

Bayer Tree and Shrub is recommended by some; the amt. of imidicloprid is much less. Help! Tried acephate, etc.


The CoreTect Tree & Shrub Tablets may be too strong as it is not labeled to be used on flowers, only ornament trees and shrubs. Flowers are more sensitive than trees and shrubs and need specifically formulated products so to prevent undesirable damage. I would recommend using the Bayer 3 in 1 Insect, Disease, and Mite Control. This product offers systemic, rainproof, 30 day protection from pests and diseases that may harm your flowering plants, trees, and shrubs. It cures and prevents fungal diseases, kills and controls insect pests such as aphids and spider mites.
