    Q
    How much Safari 20SG do I mix per gallon for bark application against Emerald Ash Borers?
    A

    You would use 12 - 24 oz of Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran per gallon depending on bark type and thickness, one gallon of spray solution will typically cover 65 - 85” of cumulative trunk diameter (1.5 - 2.0 fl oz per inch of trunk diameter) when applied to trunk between soil surface and 4.5 feet above soil surface. Spray bark on root flare (buttress roots) and on trunk between soil surface and 4-5 feet above the soil surface. Adjust nozzle to uniformly distribute spray over the entire circumference of the tree trunk and buttress roots. Wet bark just to the point of saturation and run off onto soil. Apply ONLY with a low volume sprayer operated at less than 20 PSI to prevent tree damage, bounce back and drift of spray droplets. Time applications to coincide with when most vulnerable pest life stage is present on plants. Do not apply to wet bark, during rainfall or if rain is expected within 12 hours. Control may be less effective in trees with thick bark, and at times when trees are not actively growing or transpiring.

    Q
    Do you know how I would mix Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran to achieve a 20% solution?
    A

    Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran is not mixed to get a 20% solution.  It contains 20% Dinotefuran so there are no instructions for applying at that percentage.  The rate when mixed will be lower and depends on what you are treating for and what you are treating on and is not percentage based.  Please refer to the product label for complete instructions for your need.

    I want maximum penetration into the tree.

    Q
    Will Safari 20 SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran treat scale in sago palms?
    A

    Yes, Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran, a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown, controls a broad spectrum of ferocious and invasive pests, including scale.  The dilution rate for a foliar spray would be 1.0 tsp per gallon of water to cover 200 sq ft. You do not need to trim infested branches unless they are so badly damaged that they cannot recover. We recommend that you speak with the manufacturer of Safari so they can provide additional treatment options and times using their product.

  • Asked by Josh from Billings
    03/08/2017
    Q
    Can Safari 20SG be applied to prevent an infestation of pine bark beetles?
    A

    Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide is not specifically labeled for pine bark beetles. We normally recommend using a synthetic pyrethroid like Talstar or Permethrin SFR.  The biggest key with this insect is timing to ensure the infestation doesn't get out of hand.  Once a tree is fully infested there isn't much you can do other than chop down the tree and burn it to try and prevent infestation of any neighboring trees.

  • Asked by Debra from Henderson
    05/17/2017
    Q
    What is the correct ratio to use for a trunk application of Safari 20 SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran in spruce trees?
    I have 6 4 inch diameter spruce trees with a one gallon sprayer. It says to use 12-24 ounces of Safari. Is that 3-6 cups?
    A

    Per the product label on the Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran you would use 1.0 - 2.1 ounces per 10 feet of height of the tree. As a soil drench: Mix required does in water and uniformly apply to soil around base of shrub or tree. Pull back mulch before drenching. Apply 1-4 pints of drench solution per foot of inch of trunk diameter of trees. Adjust drench volume based on soil type, soil moisture, and thickness of mulch so that product is moved into root zone. To enhance soil penetration in heavy soils and sloping terrain, dig shallow holes around tree and shrub, and apply drench solution in holes. Lower drench volumes may be less effective in dry soils or when applied over heavy mulch unless there is adequate rainfall or irrigation after application to move product into root zone.

    Q
    Will Safari 20SG control/prevent Elm Leaf Beetle?
    I have a customer who has 2- 50 ft tall Siberian or American Elms on her property, I would rather apply Safari as a basal trunk application than to apply a foliar application due to the potential for drift. Aslo, the uptake timing is approx. 2-3 weeks? thx.
    A
    Yes, Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran is labeled for leaf beetles and can be used as a basal system application by spacing injections evenly around trunk no more than 12" out from the base. Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran is a super systemic with a faster uptake that normally takes about 3 weeks to translocate.

  • Asked by Seth from Dallas, Tx
    02/13/2018
    Q
    Which rate should I use for application of Safari 20SG on hedges?
    We have a 4 ft tall, 100' foot long Holly hedge composed of 40 individual plants that we would like to drench with Safari 20SG. Based on the label, the high rate for a 4' x 100' hedge is 4 oz of Safari 20SG. However, if I calculate per individual shrub within the hedge it comes out to approximately 0.85 oz per 4' Holly for a total of 34 oz for the entire hedge. Using 4 oz of product vs 34 oz of product seems dramatically different. Is this correct or am I missing something here?
    A

    We understand the different rate directions can be confusing on the Safari 20SG. You should get great results from using the higher rate under the product label directions for use on hedges. Since your hedges are in a row and so close together, some of the active ingredient from each plant's root system would reach over to the neighboring plants. So you could use the rate of 1 oz per foot of hedge height per 100 linear feet rate, which would put you at 4 oz for 100 linear feet of shrubs which is 4 feet high.

  • Asked by Steve from Johns Island, Sc
    03/23/2018
    Q
    What is the soil drench application rate of Safari for tea scale on Camellias?
    A

    When doing a soil drench with Safari 20SG or any other systemic insecticide, the exact amount of water is not as important as using the correct amount of product. Your water is a carrier for the active ingredient, so you just need to use a sufficient volume of water to mix and apply the insecticide. To treat shrubs, you would use 3 to 6 grams (1.25 - 2.5 level teaspoons) of Safari 20SG per foot of shrub height, using 1-4 pints of water per foot of shrub height or per inch of trunk diameter for trees.

If using a low volume sprayer, adjust concentration to apply the same amount of product per unit area.
