Imidicloprid dissolved in water and applied to soil is absorbed by the roots. Once absorbed, it moves through the entire plant to protect against insects. This systemic soil drench also moves into and protects new growth after application. To control listed insects, the insecticide must distribute completely throughout the plant. Depending on the size and health of the plant, this may take one week to three months (for very large trees). Rain or water cannot wash off the imidacloprid inside the plant.

QWould like to use on a pomegranate tree, using for the leafy bug.
Did not come with instruction book attached for some reason. Need to know if I can apply when the tree is in bloom which is now end of March? And what the ratio is and how to mix the liquid, and how to put it onto the tree/bush? Does it need to be watered in? Also I assume only treat once and year, and if this is not a good time what would be?
AAccording to the label for the Fruit Tree and Vegetable Systemic, when treating for leafy bugs on pomegranate trees, you cannot make more than one application per year and do not apply until the trees have flowered or when bees are actively foraging. The mixing ratio is 1.5 fl. oz. per gallon of water. You need to stay within 3 feet of the dripline when pouring around the base of the tree. This needs to be poured evenly around the tree.

QI treated my fruit trees 3 months ago with the Fruit Tree & Vegetable Systemic but the bugs are back.
Can I retreat again now? Thanks
AThe label for the Fruit Tree and Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench advises to not make more than one application per season on most plants. With any systemic product it can take time to be translocated throughout the tree, up to 8 weeks. It works by killing plant sucking plants that feed on the plant and ingest the product so does not keep bugs away. Could you tell us what type of tree you are treating for and what type of bug so we can make a recommendation a product to apply as a foliar spray?
