Marco from Altadena, Ca writes,

How often do I need to use CoreTect ?

In order to prevent future infestation of Aphids in my Deodar cedar, how often should I apply CoreTect ? How do I find out if my tree has drip line feeder roots or near the main trunk feeder roots ?


While Coretect is not designed as a “preventative” treatment, if you follow the label for amount of tablets needed for the particular plant, the Coretect can stay in the plants system and treat for up to 2 years. The exact time will vary so keeping a watchful eye on the plant for any pest activity is going to help determine the longevity of the product in the plant/area. We recommend contacting a local master gardener or arborist to either come look at the plant, or to see if they know off hand the root area of the given plant.
