    Q
    What is the best application method for control of boxwood leafminer using Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran?
    We have a huge boxwood leafminer problem here and Imidacloprid works ok. Timing the flying insects with so many clients is difficult. Can I control the larvae inside of the leaf with Safari? Can it be used as a foliar spray for this application or would I have to mix it as a basal drench? Thanks.
    A

    Yes, you can use Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran as a foliar spray and systemic drench. As a drench you can use 0.2 to 0.4 oz per 1,000 sq ft, as a systemic drench you can use 3 to 6 grams per foot of height with sufficient water; please follow the label instructions. We also recommend using two different products, you could use Safari 20SG for your systemic drench application and something like Talstar P for a foliar application using 0.5 to 1 oz per 1,000 sq.ft.

    Q
    Using Safari 20 sg in a drip line irrigation system
    I want to treat multiple tropical plants for mealy bugs, using a drip line irrigation system with a 2 gallon feeder. What would be the mix ratio for 100 gallons of water.
    A

    Dilution ratios for Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran are normally 1:100 to 1:200, depending on the system. Apply this product only through microirrigation (individual spaghetti tube), drip irrigation, overhead irrigation, or motorized calibrat- ed irrigation equipment per the product label.  This is not a method we are familiar with so apologize but would recommend contacting the manufacturer Valent directly at 800-682-5368 or the manufacturer of the system you are using for further advice.

    Q
    Can Safari be used for European elm scale and how best to apply to an 80-foot tree?
    A

    Safari 20SG insecticide can be applied to treat a variety of soft and armored scale insects, such as European Elm scale, however this application is best done in spring after leaves have expanded. For the crawling stage, it is best to apply a foliar spray of an oil product or a pyrethroid such as Talstar P. This article has more details about the life cycle of this insect.

    Q
    What concentration of Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran should I use for a basal trunk spray to kill spotted lanternflies?
    I plan on treating a "host" Alanthus tree to draw SLFs with a spray 5-6ft up the trunk from ground level. Should the spray be used to just wet the bark, or wet the trunk to where the spray runs down the trunk and puddles at the root flare?
    A

    Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran can be applied as a basal trunk spray (instructions on page 14) but is not specifically labeled for spotted lantern flies. We recommend that you consult with your local cooperative extension office for additional options.

    Q
    Can you help me with control of palmetto scale (comstockeilla sabalis) on a sabal palm?
    The scale is winning on my 8 ft florida sabal (not much of a trunk yet). Its under a live oak tree and sprays and other systemics have not work. Texas A&M said try dinotefuran. I have a friend who has same scale on sabal minors. How much does a 12 ounce bottle cost? It appears the scale is in the heart of the palm as gets in between unopen fronds.
    A

    Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran would be a great product to use for Pamletto Scale. One 12oz bottle is $119.95 and will make approx. 100 gallons of mixed solution.

    Q
    How much Safari 20SG do I use to treat a 6 - 7 foot azalea bush for white lace azalea bugs?
    It is located in a flower bed.
    A

    The Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide product label recommends using 1.0 - 2.1 ounces per 10 feet of height. When applied to the soil, Safari 20 SG Insecticide is taken up by actively growing trees and shrubs. Speed of control will be dependent on plant size, plant health, environmental conditions and how actively pests are feeding. In actively growing plants, control may be evident within 1 - 3 weeks after application depending on plant size. Time applications to coincide with when most vulnerable pest life stage is present on plants. Control may be less effective when applied to dry, saturated, or frozen soil, or at times when plants are not actively taking up water from soil. If possible, irrigate dry soils 1 - 3 days before application, or apply irrigation within 3 days after application. Heavy rainfall or inadequate irrigation immediately following application may decrease performance. Use higher labeled rates for broadleaf evergreens with dense foliage (ex. hollies), and with very large trees.  Mix required dose 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 height (shrubs) or inch of trunk diameter (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 or 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. Please be sure to read the full Product Label for complete use instructions.

    I planted my vegetables in compost that had chrysanthemum plants added to it last fall. They had been foliar sprayed with Safari....would it have broken down by this spring?

    Q
    How much Safari 20SG do I add to a 1 gal sprayer to do a bark treatment?
    treating walnut hull maggots on black walnuts.
    A

    Safari 20SG is only labeled for non-bearing nut trees and does not have labeling for walnut maggots. For other bark applications, the amount of product you need will depend on the size of the tree. Page 14 of the product label has instructions on this application. We would suggest contact your local Cooperative Extension office for assistance with this pest.

    Q
    Will Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide work for scale on sago palms?
    Do I need to prune all the branches off?
    A

    Safari Insecticide, 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.

    Q
    Cost vs Imidacloprid
    It looks like the fertilome may be more cost effective for EAB? However, with Dinoteguran as a trunk spray you don't have to worry about soil moisture and leaf debris. So Dinoteguran may be more likely to succeed?
    A
    What exactly would you be treating for? The best product to use is based on that versus the treatment method.
