PRODUCT INFORMATION

Imidicloprid dissolved in water and applied to soil is absorbed by the roots. Once absorbed, it moves through the entire plant to protect against insects. This systemic soil drench also moves into and protects new growth after application. To control listed insects, the insecticide must distribute completely throughout the plant. Depending on the size and health of the plant, this may take one week to three months (for very large trees). Rain or water cannot wash off the imidacloprid inside the plant.

  • Apply Once for Season-long Control
  • Mix in Water and Pour Around Plant Base
  • Controls Aphids, Leafhoppers, Whiteflies, Foliage Feeding Thrips and Other Listed Insects
  • For Use on Listed Fruit and Nut Trees, including Citrus, Apple, Peach, Cherry, and Plum; and on Listed Vegetables, including Tomatoes, Carrots, Peppers, Melons, Cucumbers, Herbs; and on Listed Berries including Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries and Grapes
  • 32 oz. Size Treats 640 sq. ft. of Vegetables

    Happy, Mostly

    By Jim on 11/10/2017

    I've just started using this for my psyllid affected citrus trees. It seems to be working, but need more time to be sure. Would appreciate having better mixing and usage guidelines.

    great price, but there is a hold in the screw top. Went to shake it, and it went all over! I am thinking it will all evaporate eventually

Q
What is a good product(s) and spray schedule to use to keep the worms out of the fruit on plum and peach tree?

My trees look healthy but I can see spider webs and small spiders in the trees. I'd like to get rid of them also but I don't think they are causing the worms. I live in Savannah GA and its humid here. I have peach, plum, and nectarine trees that have worms.

A

Fruit Tree and Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench is a good product to use for the elimination of pests prior to the fruit emerging. This product is labeled for various insects, including common pests that may be in fruit. One application is season long. The application depends upon the distance the trunk to the drip line.
