    Q
    How much Quali - Pro Imidacloprid 2F for a gallon of tree drench, I tend to mix things up by gallons instead o
    Treating Japanese beetles on rose bud tree
    A

     When using Quali - Pro Imidacloprid 2F as a soil drench for beetles you should use 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) per inch of trunk diameter (D.B.H.) diluted in 1 pint - 1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter.   

    The amount of water that is used will vary depending on soil conditions and volumes that are easy for applicators to use. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per inch of trunk diameter but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.  Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred. After the soil drench has been applied you should water it in with at east 1/2 inch of water. Note: Water simply acts as a carrier and it is important that even distribution of the product is achieved. Thus, more water may be used if the applicator feels runoff will not occur and proper penetration of the root zone is achieved. Insecticides applied to the soil are taken up by the roots and trans-located throughout the tree or shrub. Root/soil drenches offer the advantage of requiring no special equipment to apply (other than a bucket or watering can). However, surface layers of organic matter, such as mulch or leaf litter, can bind the insecticide and reduce uptake. Before applying drenches, it is important to remove or pull back any mulch or dead leaves so the insecticide solution is poured directly on the mineral soil. It is also important to keep the soil around the tree or shrub moist for the next 7-10 days after applications to encourage uptake.

    Q
    Is the application rate of 1.5 fl oz per 100 gallons of water correct for foliar sprays on shrubs? This seems like a very small amount of product to be effective?
    A

    Correct, according to the product label you will use 1.5 fl oz (45ml) of Quali - Pro Imidacloprid 2F per 100 gallons of water for treating listed insects as a foliar spray applications on trees, shrubs, evergreens, flowers, foliage plants, ground covers and interior plantscapes.

    The 1.5 fl oz per 100 gallons of water breaks down to be 0.15 fl oz per 10 gallons of water if smaller applicaiton is needed.

  • Asked by Mh from Nj
    12/21/2020
    Q
    Can Quali - Pro Imidacloprid 2F be used to soak the ground around hemlocks?
    I am looking to treat a row of mature (20-30 foot tall) Hemlocks that had shown signs of woolly adelgid (HWA) infestation and read that imidacloprid can be injected into affected trees by soil drenching. What ratio of this product would I use per gallon of water? How many gallons should be applied per tree without harming them or the wildlife?
    A

    Quali - Pro Imidacloprid 2F https://www.domyown.com/imidacloprid-2f-p-21196.html is labeled for adelgids and will be able to help with hemlock wooly adelgid infestations. Because hemlocks are shallow rooted, a soil drench with Dominion can be effective. Whatever method is being used to make a soil drench, whether using power equipment, a bucket or watering can, it is important to make sure the application is evenly distributed and does not run off. Soil treatments should be made when the soil is moist. Fall to early winter and spring to early summer are recommended periods for making soil applications for the HWA. It can take 2-3 months for imidacloprid products to be translocated through trees that are about 15 inches in diameter. This process may be faster or slower, depending upon the size and health of the hemlock and other environmental conditions during and after the application.  It is advisable to make soil applications of imidacloprid products to hemlocks before they become heavily infested and stressed by the HWA— to ensure good translocation through the tree.

  • Asked by Kate from Dallas Tx

    Q
    What would be better for a soil drench around an Oak tree for the long term control of trunk borers?
    Would the Imidacloprid 2F, or the Imidacloprid 2F T/I be more appropriate?
    A

    We recommend getting a positive identification to be sure that a soil drench treatment is the best treatment as not all borers are effected by systemic products. Quali - Pro Imidacloprid 2F and Prime Source Imidacloprid 2F Select T/I have the same active ingredient therefore will work the same way, which you choose will depend on the number of trees you need to treat. Please read the product label for complete application instructions.

    Q
    What's the difference between Quali - Pro Imidacloprid 2F and Dominion 2L?
    Both have the sane active ingredient but Dominion can be use for termites and quality pro can't.
    A

    While products can contain the same active ingredient they are not also designed/tested to be used the same way.  The Dominion 2L was tested for termite control and its residual abilities to protect a home, along with turf and landscape pest treatments. The Quali-Pro Imidacloprid 2F has not been tested for it and while the overall performance against plant destroying insects is the same between the two brands, we don't know if any inert ingredients or other formula differences could be the reasoning behind its lack of termite labeling. The manufacturer could have chosen to not test it for that purpose and only focused on the product as a lawn and landscape insecticide. You'll always want to use the product specifically labeled for your treatment needs and areas to ensure it works as intended.
