Criterion 75 water soluble packet (WSP) is a liquid insecticide concentrate which can be used at very low rates and applied as a foliar spray, soil broadcast spray, soil injection or soil drench to control grubs, weevils, and other soil and turf inhabiting pests. Soil applications are taken up by plant, ornamental, and tree roots into twigs, stems, and foliage. Criterion 75 WSP includes detailed instructions for application to turfgrass, ornamentals, trees, shrubs, flowers, groundcovers, and in and around commercial or residential buildings. Most applications of Criterion 75 Systemic Insecticide require the use of a one or two gallon pressurized sprayer. There are 4 x 1.6 oz water soluable packets in each envelope.

The coverage area of 1 envelope of Criterion 75 WSP will depend entirely on the type of pest you are treating and the area that is being treated.  Here are some general guidelines:

There are 4 x 1.6 oz water soluble packets in each envelope.

For Turf grass-:  1.6 oz (1 packet) per 8,250 sq ft to 11,000 sq ft.

For Foliar applications of trees, shrubs: 1.6 oz (1 packet) per 300 gal water

For Systemic applications of trees:  1.6 (1 packet) per 24-48 cumulative inches trunk diameter

For Systemic applications of shrubs: 1.6 (1 packet) per 24-48 cumulative feet shrub height

    5 of 5 Stars  Great Alternative to higher priced Merit 75 WSP
    By Sheryl on November 4, 2010
    Verified Purchase

    Product worked in EXACTLY the same manner as the higher priced Merit 75 WSP. Took care of my ficus shrubs, that were infested with white fly. Two weeks after application, I'm already seeing new growth. Will continue to treat every six-months as recommended.

June 26, 2011 Clark asked:

QCan Criterion 75 WSP be used to control hemlock woolly adelgid?
If so, how much of the product would I need to treat an 18" hemlock?

AYes, you can use Criterion to treat a hemlock for the woolly adelgid.  You should follow the soil drench instructions on the product label.  You should apply 1 pouch or 1.6 oz of criterion for every 24 to 48 inches of trunk diameter.  You should apply the pouch in at least 10 gallons of water to apply the drench.  It really does not matter how much water you use, it just matters how much product you are applying over the area.  The more water you apply it with the deeper the ground will soak it up.  Slightly less than 1 pouch should be used for an 18" wide hemlock.

QCan I use Mallet 75 WSP for aphid control on trees near the street?
Can this product be used to make soil injections of the systemic insecticide to control tree aphids that secrete the sticky honey-dew substance? If so how do we apply to the tree? Is it safe for pets or kids roaming near a street tree? Do you recommend any alternative products? Thanks!

AMallet 75 WSP is no longer available as it has been discontinued by the manufacturer. We recommend Criterion 75 WSP which has the same active ingredient at the same concentration and pretty much the same label.   You can apply Criterion as a soil drench to control aphids but it will take time to see the results as the tree has to trans-locate the product throughout the foliage which can take some time. Immediately before or just after the soil drench you can simply use a strong stream of water from a garden hose to dislodge the aphids from the tree. Using Criterion on this tree will be safe for the children and pets as long as they are out of the area while the soil drench is being applied.

July 11, 2011 Russ asked:

QWhat product and when should I apply it to curtail emerald ash borer?
I am trying to keep the green ash borer from destroying a couple of my trees, one is already a goner, the two others look ok right now, should I wait till next spring or give them a dose of something now? My ash trees are roughly 12' in diameter. Any advice is welcomed.

ACriterion WSP is the most popular choice for emerald ash borers.  You need 1.4 level teaspoons per inch of diameter. This is the highest rate and should be used for all boring insects. 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 tree diameter but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch 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. Treatments should begin in May or June and should be done every year to protect trees from the EAB.

QWhat is the best product you carry for emerald ash borer?
I have been using your Criterion 75 WSP on my ash trees as a drench. Showing mixed results.

APlease see our Emerald Ash Borer treatment page. Criterion 75 would still be a top product to use. The down fall is that when treating Emerald Ash Borer, you have to retreat every year.

August 25, 2011 Marc from Boca Raton, Fl asked:

QWhat is the mix rate of Criterion for Ficus?
I have a very full 6 foot ficus shrub comprised of about 30 plants. How would I apply the product to treat a thrip infestation. Specifically, how much product in how much water to drench the roots?

AFor systemic root drench applications of shrubs: 1.6 (1 packet) per 24-48 cumulative feet shrub height. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint Criterion  per foot of shrub height but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per foot of height 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.

QIs this a white powder?
I'm looking for a white powder form of Imidacloprid that is water-soluble, and reasonably priced. Would this be my best bet?

A The Criterion 75 WSP Systemic Insecticide is a light brown to tannish powder that has imidacloprid as its active ingredient. Keep in mind that the appearance of the product is not as important as verifying the product you need is labeled for the problem you have.

March 18, 2014 Luis from Miami asked:

QWhich provides longer residual control? A soil drench or foliar application?
I have 300 linear ft of a 4ft tall podocarpus hedge infested with aphids. Which method will provide the longest residual effect and what would be the amount needed for this hedge?

A

A soil drench will provide a longer residual as it will soak into the plants inner system and last for typically an entire growing season up to 1 year. Foliar application can be somewhat systemic as well but would need to be reapplied after the weather wears away at it on the surface. Per the product label: For Aphid treatment on Shrubs: Soil Drench: Uniformly apply the dosage in no less than 10 gallons of water per 1000 sq/ft as a drench around the base of the shrub, directed to the root zone. Use 1.6oz (1 packet) Criterion 75 WSP per 24-48 ft of cumulative shrub height. There is not a way to mix up less than what the packet states at a time so unless you have a large tank (at least 100 gallons or so) you would be far better off using a liquid Imidacloprid product rather than the extremely hard to use Criterion.

We would recommend Adonis 2F instead for the soil treament. To Apply: 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 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.

June 25, 2013 Pam from Honeybrook, Pa asked:

QCan Criterion 75 WSP Systemic Insecticide be used on hardy hibiscus and if so what is the mixing ratio?

A Criterion is not labeled for use on hibiscus. We recommend using Bonide Systemic Insect Control. Using a Systemic can take several weeks to trans-locate through trees. The exact amount of time depends on the species of tree, the size of the tree, how much water the tree is getting and of course the health of the tree. It is recommended that while you are waiting for the systemic product to trans-locate that you use a different product for an immediate kill of the pest insects such as Horticultural oil, Insecticidal soap or Talstar P. Systemic products last for 3-4 months in most cases.

May 8, 2013 Rick from Jupiter, Fl asked:

QRoot Drench Range
The instructions provide a range for root drench on shrubs of 26-48 cumaltive shrub height. Why is their a range? Does the lower range (26') indicate a higher dosage? Would you apply a higher dosage for specific insects?

A The manufacturers of most product allow a range of usage rates so that applicators can choose to use a higher usage rate for hardier insects (whitefly, boring beetles) and for a longer lasting residual. You can use the lower usage rate for easier to kill insects or when a shorter residual is desired.

April 30, 2013 Lynn from Florida asked:

QHow do I mix Criterion 75 WSP in my hose-end sprayer?
I would like to treat my entire yard .. grass and shrubs.. and I would like to use a hose end sprayer that measures by tbsp per gallon of water... it looks like I would need to use 1 full packet to cover all the grass and shrubs.. but what would I set the hose end sprayer to..

A Criterion 75 WSP cannot be used in a hose end sprayer as it is in pre-measured packets and must be pre-mixed in large batches. Instead you should consider using a liquid such as Dominion 2L which will allow you to use smaller amounts to treat your lawn and shrubs in smaller amounts. You will use 0.46 to 0.6 fl. oz per 1,000 sq ft for broadcast applications in whatever amount of water it takes you to cover that area. (Water only acts as a carrier so the exact amount of water used is not important.

QWill Criterion 75 WSP Systemic Insecticide help control tent caterpillars in my large American Elm trees?
Will this product help control tent caterpillars in my large American Elm trees?

A Criterion 75 WSP is great for preventing tent caterpillars in the spring when they are not as active.  You should use Criterion as a soil drench around the root system of the tree.  For issues you have right now, you should use Talstar from a powered sprayer directed at the tree limbs and the webbing from the tent caterpillars.
