    5 of 5 Stars  Fertilome Systemic Drench
    By Leslie in Shreveport, LA 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!!

    5 of 5 Stars  Worked great!
    By Jco in Indiana 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.

    4 of 5 Stars  Green trees!
    By Diane in Freeport, IL 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  This Product Works!
    By Melvin in Indianapolis, IN on June 28, 2014

    I ordered two cases of this product in the gallon size for use in controlling the emerald ash borer and applied it in late Winter/early Spring. Currently, the affected trees are showing healthy new growth and the adults were driven from the trees and expiring all round the property as the product traveled up the trees. The directions for use are spot on, though I modified the application a bit by using a gallon more water to insure that the product penetrated the soil quickly since the ground was still quite cold and Spring rains still lay ahead. This strategy was rewarded. If you need an excellent product for the EMB, this is one and I found it is also the most economical. In today's business climate, I can only hope that the manufacturer maintains the quality of their product. They have a winner!

    3 of 5 Stars  Fetilome tree drench
    By j in southeast michigan on May 14, 2014

    It's almost impossible to rate this product because of the nature of it. You basically dump it on the ground around your tree to protect it form pests- in my case, ash trees and the emerald ash borer. The only way I'll know if this didn't work is if my ash trees start dying in a couple years. If they don't die, it worked and vice versa.

    4 of 5 Stars  Price conscious
    By Bob in Shillington, pa on April 24, 2014

    It's much less expensive than the Bayer product. I treat over 30 trees on my property each year. Last year was the first I used this instead of bayer. I did lose a white pine over this past winter, so I'll be keeping an eye on how it works this year. Other than the pine my ash, beech, birch, walnut, apple, cherry and maple all did fine

    By Bob in Leland, NC 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.

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.

Regarding "Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench" I have 3 Magnolia trees that have a severe magnolia scale problem. Each are about 15 inches circumference at the base of the trunk. Will this product kill the magnolia scale? And if so, how much will I need to apply. Thanks

April 1, 2015 Kelly from Abilene, Texas asked:

QWhat's the dilution rate of Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench?
What dilution rate do you recommend for large pecan trees in Texas for aphid sap control? When is the best time to apply for prevention?

A

Unfortunately, Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench wouldn't be the best choice because it's not labeled for Aphids and therefore wouldn't help get rid of the aphid sap.

We would recommend something like Bayer Advanced 12 Month Tree & Shrub Insect Control Landscape Formula. It is safe to use on Pecan Trees for Aphid control. You would apply 1/2 oz per inch of distance around trunk so what you need to do is measure the distance, in inches, around the trunk at chest height and multiply the total by .5 for the amount of ounces required for the application. For 2 or more trunks (at chest height) take the total of the measured trunks and multiply the total by .375, the total of that is the amount in ounces needed. You can use the total ounces to a gallon of water or if the total inches of 2 or more trunks were more than 50" then you need to use 2 gallons of water. You can use a bucket or watering can and slowly pour the finished solution around the trunk/main stem of the tree as possible for best results. The best time for application is before the problem starts which is preferably in the fall but it can be applied at any time as long as the ground is not waterlogged or frozen. It is only meant to be applied once a year.

March 27, 2015 Larry from Rifle, Co asked:

QCan Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench be applied as a foliar spray?
I spoke with a local owner of an aspen tree nursery. He sprays this product on his young aspen trees 3 times per year when the twiggal fly is active.

A Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench is only labeled to be used a soil drench around the base of the tree and not as a foliar spray.  A soil drench will actually 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 are only somewhat systemic with products labeled to do so but would need to be reapplied after the weather wears away at it on the surface.

June 4, 2014 Celia from Worland Wy asked:

QWould Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench work well on evergreen shrubs and spider mites

A Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench is not labeled for mites at all. Talstar works well for both the mature and the immature spider mites. Talstar provides optimal spider mite control when applied during spring to mid-summer. Higher application rates and/or more frequent treatments may be required for acceptable spider mite control during mid- to late-summer. The addition of a surfactant or horticultural oil may increase the effectiveness of Talstar. Talstar applications may be rotated with those of other products  that have different modes of action in control programs that are designed  to manage resistance by two-spotted spider mites. Consult your local Cooperative Extension Service for resistance management recommendations in your region.
