How would I apply the Tempo SC Ultra to large ash trees to kill emerald ash borer beetle?

If not could you suggest a liquid that could work?

Answer:

Unfortunately, Tempo SC Ultra is not labeled to treat for emerald ash borer beetles. We would recommend a systemic product like Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate. According to the product label, this product quickly dissolves in water allowing the insecticide to move through the soil into the root zone. Once in the roots, the insecticide moves up through the tree providing year-long insect control. This product will also provide control to new growth. Drench applications to individual trees will control emerald ash borers. For foliar applications mix 1.5 tsp of this product per 1 gallon of water.
