Is the Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench effective for Mimosa web Worm?

Is the Fertilome tree & shrub control effective for Mimosa web worm control? Searches keep referring me to this product, but I do not see that particular pest listed. My garden store folks sold be a container of the product for. My golden locust tree, couldn't find yah info when I read the label prior to administration of the product.


The Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench will not affect webworms. This is because a systemic insecticide of any form will not work for these types of insects. You would need to use a foliar spray to control them like the Fertilome Borer, Bagworm, Tent Caterpillar & Leaf Miner Spray.  Complete instructions can be found on page 12 of the product label.
