I treated my fruit trees 3 months ago with the Fruit Tree & Vegetable Systemic but the bugs are back.

Can I retreat again now? Thanks


The label for the Fruit Tree and Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench advises to not make more than one application per season on most plants.  With any systemic product it can take time to be translocated throughout the tree, up to 8 weeks.  It works by killing plant sucking plants that feed on the plant and ingest the product so does not keep bugs away.  Could you tell us what type of tree you are treating for and what type of bug so we can make a recommendation a product to apply as a foliar spray?
