How much Safari 20SG do I use for EAB treatment?

Hi, I’m trying to figure the correct amount of Safari granules to add to one gallon of water to use in my garden sprayer. I am treating 6 smaller ash trees approx. 7-8” diameter each. Thank you.


You can use Safari 20SG as either a soil drench around the base of the trees or as a basal trunk treatment. If you are using a 1 gallon sprayer, then it sounds like you are wanting to do a basal trunk treatment. You would use 12 – 24 oz per gallon of water.  Depending on bark type and thickness, one gallon of spray solution will typically cover 65-85” of cumulative trunk diameter.
