I had a bad root aphid infestation. Couldn't kill them by spraying. I used several products, bifen, malathion, neem oil. I used this as a soil drench and cut the population from 1000's to just a few in one application. A little goes a long way. Only 1 1/2 tsp per 50 gal.
This procuct is just emerging as the orchid solution for a systemic insecticide to control scale and mites without spending a forturne. Another orchid enthusiast led me to the product line. With just one applicatiion I believe I can see a vigourous response in my orchid collection. It was by chance I found DoMyOwnPestControl online. What wonderful service! I ordered Zenith 75 on Saturday night and it arrived in the Wednesday mail!
How many 1.6 oz packets do I need to soil drench all of my trees?
I have 19 tall trees on my 1/2 acre lot. Each has an average diameter of 35 inches. They are all 6 feet apart.
You will need to measure each of the trees diameters to determine how much product you need for a soil drench. Each 1.6 oz (1 packet) ZENITH 75 WSP will treat 24 to 48 inches of cumulative trunk diameter. Please refer to the product label to determine how much you will need for the target pest you are treating. If you have not purchased this product yet please note that you must mix up large batches at a time and will require at least a 25 gallon tank. If have not purchased the Zenith and you do not have a way to make large tank mixes you may want to purchase the Dominion 2L which will allow you to mix very small or large quantities depending on your needs and abilities. You will need .1 to .2 fl oz of Dominion per inch of tree diameter depending on the target pest. Please read the product label for full instructions.
