Once absorbed, it moves up through the tree or shrub providing year-long insect protection. Fertilome Tree & Shrub Insect Drench even moves into new growth after application, thus protecting it, too. Use Fertilome Tree & Shrub Insect Drench as part of an overall tree and shrub health care program before problems start.

    5 of 5 stars  Fertilome Systemic Drench
    By Leslie in Shreveport, LA on 06/23/2011
    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 10/17/2011

    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 04/19/2011

    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 06/28/2014

    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 05/14/2014

    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.

    By Bob in Shillington, pa on 04/24/2014

    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

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.

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.

08/14/2015 Neil from Cave Creek, Az

QIs Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench effective against borer beetles, in particular the palo verde borer beetle?

A

Unfortunately there is no easy solution when it comes to boring beetles. 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 such as Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench) have proven ineffective for beetle infestations. Healthy trees can be protected before the beetles attack by topically spraying them with a synthetic pyrethroid like Permethrin SFR. The tree should be sprayed from the ground to 15 ft up the trunk to prevent future infestations. You should contact your local cooperative extension office to find out the best time to start spraying in your region.

QHow much water is to be mixed with one ounce of Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench?

A

Fertilome Tree and Shrub Systemic Insect Drench does not have a set mixture rate per gallon water. Water is just the carrier. We recommend to take a 5 gallon bucket with 4 gallons of water and however much product is needed, then pour this solution around the base of the tree or shrub. Per the product label, you should use 1 oz. of concentrate per inch of distance around the trunk for trees, and use 3 oz. of concentrate per foot of height for shrubs. Consult the product label for complete application instructions.
