Adonis 2F Insecticide/Termiticide

Adonis 2F contains Imidacloprid, the same active ingredient used in Premise and Merit. 

Adonis 2 F is a new product containing Imidacloprid, the first non-repellent and most proven termiticide/insecticide on the market as well as foliar and insect systemic applications. Adonis 2F provides reliable structural protection from subterranean termites on residential and commercial structures. In addition to providing subterranean termite treatment and protection, it also provides superior exterior ant control. Since Adonis 2F is a non-repellent, social insects like ants and termites spread the product around their colonies which eliminates the entire colony, including the queens. Adonis 2 F is also labeled for termite pre-treatments. Adonis 2F is effective, easy to use, and economical.

How Adonis 2F Termiticide / Insecticide Works

Adonis 2F (Flowable) is a non-repellent liquid concentrate containing the active ingredient Imidacloprid. Imidacloprid is in the class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids, neuro-active insecticides that are modeled after nicotine. Imidacloprid works by disrupting inhibiting stimuli transmission within an insect’s nervous system. More specifically, imidacloprid blocks a certain type of neuronal pathways which are much more prevalent in insects than mammals.

When used as directed, ants and termites cannot detect Adonis 2F, allowing them to contact the active ingredient and spread it throughout the colony through regular activities, primarily food sharing. Imidacloprid works slowly enough for the entire colony to be compromised quickly and efficiently.

Adonis 2F also works as a foliar spray to kill ornamental pests on contact, or as a systemic insecticide, translocating from the root structure throughout a plant to kill insect pests feeding on treated plants.

Target Pests

Subterranean termites, drywood termites, ants; ornamental pests such as white flies, adelgids, mealybugs, scale; turf pests such as weevils, Japanese beetles, chinch bugs, mole crickets, and white grubs

Target Uses

Adonis 2F Insecticide / Termiticide is an excellent liquid termite treatment for subterranean termites and active drywood or dampwood termite infestations. Adonis 2F offers a low-cost alternative to Premise 2 Insecticide without sacrificing efficacy. Indoor applications of Adonis 2F are limited to spot treatments of active termite infestations.

Adonis 2F is also an excellent exterior perimeter treatment for a variety of ants, including carpenter ants (do not spray indoors for ant control). Adonis 2F is an effective turfgrass treatment for many soil inhabiting pests such as chafers, Japanese beetles, billbugs, and mole crickets. You can also use Adonis 2F as a foliar spray for a variety of ornamental pests, or as a soil drench around trees and shrubs for pests such as whiteflies, scales, and mealybugs. Finally, Adonis 2F is labeled for use around many residential fruit trees, as well as pecans and grapes. (See product label for complete application instructions.)

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Imidacloprid 21.4%

Application Instructions

***Always read the product label completely before use.***

The purpose of chemical soil treatment for termite control is to establish a continuous chemical treated zone (horizontal and/or vertical) between the wood and other cellulose material in the structure and the termite colonies in the soil. Use a 0.05% to 0.1% dilution based on current recommendations. For a typical control situation, use a 0.05% dilution. Use a 0.1% dilution when a severe or persistent infestation exists. Structures that contain wells or cisterns within the foundation of the structure can only be treated using the treated back?ll method described in the treatment around wells and cisterns section of the product label.

For most post-construction termite treatments, use 4 gallons of 0.1% finished solution per 10 lineal feet in a trench 6 inches wide by 6 inches deep to create a continuous barrier around the perimeter of the treated structure. In areas of concrete slab, the same volume should be applied by drilling holes 10” – 12” apart with a hammer drill and ½” x 18” drill bit. See our article How to Do a Termite Treatment for further details of trenching treatment. For soil treatments to be covered by concrete slab such as under carports, porches, or basement floors, apply at a rate of 1 gallon or sufficient volume of solution to accurately and uniformly cover 10 square feet.

In situations where necessary, conventional application methods can be supplemented through use of foam generating equipment, or similar devices, to provide a continuous treated zone. Make foam application alone or in combination with conventional application methods, provided that the labeled amount of active ingredient per unit area is used. See “Mixing Table – Foam” on product label.

For turfgrass applications, make applications preceding or during the egg laying period of the target pest. The active ingredient in this product has enough residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity. Application timing can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Most favorable control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by suf?cient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

Each 27.5 ounce bottle yields approximately 45 gallons of finished solution for termite or perimeter ant treatments and treats approximately 1-2 acres of turfgrass, ornamentals, or groundcovers.

Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Ratios:

* 0.3 fl. oz. (9 mL)/ gal. of water – 0.05% - some termite treatments, spot treatments of termite nests and other wood-infesting pests

* 0.6 fl. oz. (18 mL)/ gal. of water – 0.1% - most termite treatments

* 27.5 fl. oz. / 100 gal. of water – 0.05% - high volume termite applications

* 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. (14 to 17 mL)/ 1,000 sq. ft. – apply in sufficient water for uniform coverage – turfgrass applications, ornamental foliage applications

* 1.5 fl. oz. (45 mL) / 100 gal. of water – high volume foliar applications to ornamentals, residential fruit and nut trees

* 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (2 to 6 mL) per inch of trunk diameter or shrub height – root drench for trees and shrubs

For use in the following areas:

Pre- and post-construction termite treatments around residential, commercial, and industrial buildings; turfgrass, landscape ornamentals, residential fruit and nut trees and interior plantscapes; turfgrass in residential lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields; commercial and residential landscapes and interior plantscapes; residential area pome fruits and nuts: apple, crabapple, loquat, mayhaw, pear, oriental pear, quince, pecan, grapes

Indoors-

Adonis 2F Termiticide/Insecticide is not labeled for indoor use except for spot treatment of active termite infestations in voids.

Outdoors-

See above for termite treatments.

For control of ants in houses and other structures: Apply a 0.05 to 0.1% solution as a general surface, spot, crack and crevice or wall void application. Apply to surfaces on buildings, porches, patios and other structures, around doors and windows, eaves and attic vents, utility entry points, sof?t areas and other exterior openings (including foundation cracks or drilled holes) where the pests enter the structure or where they crawl or hide. Spray into cracks and crevices. Spray, mist or foam into voids where these ants or their nests are present. Apply the volume of spray mist or foam suf?cient to cover the area, but do not allow excessive dripping or run-off to occur from vertical or overhead surfaces.

Turfgrass applications: Apply in sufficient water to provide adequate distribution in the treated area. Do not apply through any irrigation system. Apply 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. (1.25 to 1.6 pt/A) using equipment which will produce a uniform, coarse droplet spray, using a low pressure setting to eliminate off target drift. Use higher application for faster knockdown and longer residual.

Applications to ornamentals: Application can be made by foliar application or soil applications; including soil injection, drenches, and broadcast sprays. Foliar applications offer locally systemic activity against insect pests. When making foliar applications on hard to wet foliage such as holly, pine, or ivy, add a spreader/sticker, if needed. Apply 1.5 fl. oz. per 100 gal. of water and apply before the onset of high pest populations. Reapply as needed.

Soil injection and drench: Apply 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. per inch of trunk diameter for trees or per foot of shrub height for shrubs. Apply uniformly as a drench around the base of the plant in not less than 10 gallons of water per 1,000 sq. ft. Direct application to the root area. Remove plastic or any other barrier that will stop solution from reaching the root zone. Keep soil moist for 7-10 days after application to encourage uptake.

Extra Tips

  • Keep pets and children out of treatment areas until product is dry.
  • Not for use on edible crops.
  • Do not apply to ground that is saturated or frozen or during precipitation.
  • Do not use against native or imported fire ants, pharaoh ants, or harvester ants.
  • Do not use on sod farms.
  • Do not exceed a total of 1.6 pints (0.4 lb. of active ingredient) per acre per year.
  • When making soil applications to plants with woody stems, systemic activity will be delayed until the active ingredient is taken up throughout the plant. In some cases, this translocation delay could take 60 days or longer. For this reason, treat prior to anticipated pest infestation to achieve optimum levels of control.

    I purchased this product to use as a systemic insecticide for several large hibiscus plants here in Orlando. I was tired of weekly spraying for aphids and other assorted pests. This product worked as advertised. I followed the label directions and applied to each shrub as a soil drench and no more pests. I'm also able to enjoy the flowers longer now that I am not spraying them directly with an insecticide. Another great product at a great price from a great company. Thanks DMOPC!!!

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Adonis 2F, like all systemic insecticides, may take from several weeks to several months to work through the plant, depending on the size of the plant and how much moisture the plant is receiving. While systemics are ultimately a great solution for sucking pests such as whiteflies, for more immediate control you should consider applying a foliar spray such as Talstar P to knock down the existing adults while waiting for the systemic insectide to work through the plant: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/talstar-talstar-one-p-97.html

QHave palm trees with white flies (limbo gumbo spiral fly). What is the best product and procedure?

AImidacloprid is the active ingredient you will need to systemically control whitefly on your palms. Adonis would be the product of choice for soil drench applications for whitefly infestations. It can take a few weeks for the Adonis to translocate through tall trees and you will most likely continue to see whiteflies in that time period. While you are waiting on the imidacloprid to translocate you should treat the foliage with a product such as Talstar P or with insectidical soap or insecticidal oil.

QHow do I apply Adonis 2F as a soil drench for ficus with whitefly?
How do I apply this as a soil drench? Do I use a sprayer? I have a very large ficus tree with white flies.

AMost people use a 5 gallon bucket or a large watering can to apply Adonis as a soil drench. You will need 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Adonis 2F per foot of shrub height or 0.1 to 0.2 fl oz per inch of trunk diameter for trees. 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 foot of shrub height (or inch of trunk diameter for trees) but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per foot of height (or inch of trunk diameter for trees) as well. 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 translocated 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. We also recommend using a product with an active ingredient that is different than the soil drench for a foliage application while you are waiting for the Adonis to translocate through the ficus. Talstar P is the most popular choice for foliage application on ficus for white fly.

QIs Adonis 2F effective for green bore ash tree applications?
What would the recommended water :chemical ratio be for the once a year dosage

AAdonis 2F is labeled to use on trees to help protect against boring beetles. Treatments should begin in May or June and should be done every year to protect trees from the Emerald Ash Borers. Most people use a 5 gallon bucket or a large watering can to apply Adonis as a soil drench. You will need 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Adonis 2F per inch of trunk diameter for trees. It is recommended that you use the higher rate for boring beetles. 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 for trees but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter for trees.

QWhat concentration of Adonis 2F should I use for grubs in my turf?
I noticed two different concentrations on the product label.

AYou will need to use 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz. (14 to 17 mL) of Adonis per 1000 sq. ft. You should use the higher concentration for faster knockdown and a longer lasting residual. For optimum control, make applications preceding or during the egg laying period of the target pest. The active ingredient in this product has enough residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity. Application timing can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Most favorable control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

QI have a 30 foot canary island date palm that has a palm weevil infestation. What product should I use?

AWe would recommend Adonis 2F, which is a much more economical version of Merit.  You would use the soil drench method.  Apply .2 ounces per inch of trunk diameter.  Soil Drench: Apply uniformly as a drench around the base of the tree in not less than 10 gallons of water per 1000 square feet. Direct application to the root area. Remove plastic or any other barrier that will stop solution from reaching the root zone.

QTreating Ficus Whitefly with Adonis 2F
What setting do I use on a hose-end sprayer to apply this as a ground soak to an 8ft tall ficus hedge? How much do I need to treat approximately 150 feet of hedges?

QI am looking for an insecticide for aphids, mites and fleas. Will Adonis 2F work?
I have aphid infestations on crape myrtles. I also need to treat mites on blue point junipers, Arizona cypress, Leyland cypress, and Italian cypress. I also have a serious problem with fleas in the yard where the dog pen is. For the two tree issues, I am looking for the proper systemic solution and spray option for while the systemic has a chance to work. For the flea infestation, I am looking for the products to put on the dogs and for the dog pen and to handle flea eggs - future generations. I have read that Imidacloprid is the best for the aphids. You suggest on this site to go with Adonis 2F but the percentage of the active ingredient is around a third that of the Bayer products (75%). Please advise... Thanks in advance.

Adonis 2F is not labeled to treat mites or fleas. It is labeled for treatment of aphids systemically. If you soil drench around the base of the tree for aphid control, you will need to get the measurements of your trees to determine how much product will be needed for treatment. Please refer to the product label for mixing and application instructions.

 

I would recommend applying the products from our Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit to the interior and exterior of the home when the pets are not in the area. Please click on the link for more information on mixing and applying the products for flea control.

We would recommend having the mite properly identified by your local county extension office first. There are many species of mites. You will find the contact information by clicking the link below.

QHow many years is Adonis 75WSP active in soil treatment?
I was reading How to perform a termite treatment and saw that it stated Suspend would last 10 years and Dominion 7 years. Is there a figure for Adonis 75 WSP( or Premise 75 or Imaxx Pro)? Imidicloprid is the AI in Dominion and these 3 so is active period the same? Description for Adonis only says remains in soil for years. Is there something more specific? Thanks

AAdonis 75 WSP is labeled to be reapplied every 5 years. While it will likely last as long as Dominion 2L it has not been tested that long so the manufacturer cannot claim it is active for longer than it has been tested for. We recommend using a product that contains imidacloprid (Adonis, Dominion) or fipronil (Termidor or Taurus) for the best termite protection.

QI have white fly in my ficus bushes and I am looking for a systemic insecticide to treat ficus.

AYou will need to use a product that contains imidacloprid such as Adonis 2F to treat systemically for whitefly on ficus. It can take several weeks for the Adonis to translocate through the plant. We recommend using a product with an active ingredient that is different than the soil drench for a foliage application while you are waiting for the Adonis to translocate through the ficus. Talstar P is the most popular choice for foliage applications on ficus for white fly. Please take a few moments to read a previous Q&A which explains in detail how to measure your ficus to determine how much product you will need and also how to apply the product: Q&A.

QGreenhouse White Flies, nothing seems to work.
These pests are everywhere, and Talstar and Demand both didn't do the trick. Will Adonis 2F do the trick on these?

AAdonis 2F is our most popular product for whiteflies.  It usually will do the trick over the others since it is a sytemic, meaning the plant will actually soak up the products in its circulatory system and any insect, including whiteflies, that feeds on the plant will actually ingest the Adonis product and die.  Talstar and Demand are not systemic.
