    4 of 5 Stars  Green trees!
    By Diane on April 19, 2011

    We have used this product for 3 yrs now and have found that the very destructive Japanese Beetles are less likely to eat the leaves of the trees treated with this product in early spring. We have a number of flowering trees and willow varieties that were ravaged one year so we asked our garden center if there was a way to keep the beetles off the trees. This product was recommended. It works to our satisfaction. As our trees get bigger, it takes a little more product to do the job, but it was well worth the result. Green trees! With no leaf damage!

    5 of 5 Stars  Worked great!
    By Jco on October 17, 2011

    I had arborvitae and Norway spruces dying from spider mites. I originally paid a nursery $165 to have them sprayed. They perked up but after a few months I noticed the needles graying and browning again. A friend told me about this and I now wish I had discovered this product first. I put some around my neighbor's white pine that had browning needles and a month later, this perked up remarkably. I am now using it on all my evergreens.

    5 of 5 Stars  Fertilome Systemic Drench
    By Leslie on June 23, 2011
    Verified Purchase

    This is the best product available!! I have tried most of the others and the only thing that worked was this because it is absorbed into the root system. No messy sprays, only once a year application and my crepe myrtles look AMAZING. No more aphids, mildew or yellow dying leaves. Thank you!  I will definitely buy a case next year and EVERY year after!!

    By Bob on May 21, 2013

    It is to soon to determine the effectiveness since this a product that works systemicaly. However, I thought the price was fair since it is less expensive than the "name brand" with very close to the strength of that product. Delivery time was excellent, the buying process is easy, and communication regarding delivery was fine.

    5 of 5 Stars  Solution to scale on japanese blueberry trees
    By Sean on November 7, 2012

    Scale had just about taken over my japanese blueberry trees and I was spraying them with neem oil and other insectcides with not much luck; within 3 days of using fertilome insect drench everything changed and I believe my trees are going to make it. I plan to use this product in the future every spring and fall to make sure the scale doesn't endanger my trees again

    5 of 5 Stars  Success For All Seasons
    By Mstenhaug on October 10, 2012

    We have used this product for several years on evergreens that have usually been plagued by insects and have shown signs of impending death. Once we started using it, the trees have not had issues with insect bombardment and have grown successfully each year. In the past, we have purchased this in smaller batches, but the cost and quantity made this an unbeatable deal since we have 5 trees to treat, of varying sizes.

    5 of 5 Stars  Fertilome Systemic Works
    By Will on June 24, 2012

    The Fertilome Systemic was recommended to us by our Garden center. Bought a gallon from them to protect our trees. The gallon only covered about 1/2 of our trees, we have a lot of trees. DoMyOwnPestControl has the product much cheaper than the nursery with free shipping. I got a case from them. It takes about two gallons to do my yard.

    5 of 5 Stars  fertilome tree and shrub insect drench-one gallon
    By Fred on May 14, 2012

    The product was easy to open and reseal, and the price was one half the price of similar product in the stores! It's easy to do yourself and You can save a lot of money compared to hiring it done! Just be careful not to get the chemical on your person and apply when there is no rain forcast for 3 or 4 days! I have been protecting my ash trees for 3 years with this chemical to save them from the emerald ash tree borer bugs!

February 7, 2011 Milo asked:

QDo you have a systemic insecticide that can be used on Pecan trees for boring beetles?
Boring beetles are infesting pecan and other trees in the Southeast. I would like to find a poison to inject into the ground around the tree drip line, so the roots would absorb it and take it up through the limb cambian layer and kill the borer larva. I believe the Imidacloprid will do the job. Websites in Texas advertise a service to do this, but they are secretive about the product. I do have an applicator's permit.

AWe believe the product you are looking for is the Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic. This product contains Imidacloprid and is labeled for boring beetles on pecan trees.

August 1, 2012 Jim from United States asked:

QIt's first of August. Ok to treat for Emerald ash borer now?
I have your fertilome tree and shrub drench which I plan on using for my green ash trees to prevent emerald ash borer problems. 1) It is the 1st of August and we are in a drought. Is now a good time to apply? If not when should I apply? 2) I noticed that you no longer recommend Fertilome drench for emerald ash borer. Is that correct?

AWhen using Fertilome Tree and Shrub you should treat mid-fall and again in the spring with a a soil drench. You may need to moisten the ground prior to the treatment, use the higher volume of water as recommended on the label and keep the soil moist for the following 14 days after the treatment to encourage the tree to trans-locate the product. We are not sure where you saw that we do not recommend Fertilome drench for EAB but we think it is a fine product for this pest.

April 9, 2014 Sue from Fremont,ohio asked:

QWill Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench work if tree is already borer infected
bark off trunk in 3 different place

A Although, once beetles have bored in Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench should still work as it will translocate up through the tree. It is hard to eradicate beetle borer after they have entered into the vein system of the tree. If there is already bark off in 3 places, it may be best to eradicate the tree, before infection spreads.

March 14, 2014 Stu from Phoenix, Az asked:

QFertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench for borers in Goldwater Pines?
My pine trees have rings ion the bark where borers have penetrated. A big problem here in the Southwest. Will this product kill the borers? How about the Fertilome Borer, Bagworm etc product?

A Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench will help prevent pine borers. Infected trees should be cut down (before the newly hatched beetles fly out of the trees in the spring/summer) and the wood burned or chipped, while other still healthy trees should be sprayed annually to protect them. Because of the natural boring behavior of the beetle they are protected from topically applied insecticides and systemic insecticides (those injected into the tree or applied as a root drench) have proven ineffective for pine beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a product called Permethrin SFR. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations.

QIs this appropriate to treat the new crape myrtle scale/pest?
There is a fairly new pest that is attacking and killing crape myrtles, eriococcus scale. Will this product protect my crape myrtles?

A

Fertilome Tree & Shrub Insect Drench would be a good choice for scale protection.  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.
