Merit 2F Insecticide

Merit 2F Insecticide is for the use of insect control on turfgrass, sod farms, fruit and nut trees, interior plantscapes, and ornamental landscapes. Merit 2F Insecticide's active ingredient is Imidacloprid. Merit 2F Insecticide can also be used to suppress chinch bugs and cutworms. It is a systemic product that will travel up the plant system from the roots. Merit 2F Insecticide has long residual control - it interferes with the insects' nervous system to stop feeding, producing, and then dies.




APPLICATION TO TURFGRASS

MERIT 2F Insecticide can be used for the control of soil inhabiting pests of turfgrass, such as Northern & Southern masked chafers, Asiatic garden beetle, European chafer, Green June beetle, May or June beetle, Japanese beetle, Oriental beetle, Billbugs, Annual bluegrass weevil, Black turfgrass ataenius, European Crane Fly, and mole crickets. MERIT 2F Insecticide can also be used for suppression of cutworms and chinch bugs. MERIT 2F Insecticide can be used as directed on turfgrass in sites such as home lawns, business and office complexes, shopping complexes, multi-family residential complexes, golf courses, airports, cemeteries, parks, playgrounds, athletic fields and sod farms.

The active ingredient in MERIT 2F Insecticide has sufficient residual activity so that applications can be made preceding the egg laying activity of the target pests. High levels of control can be achieved when applications are made preceding or during the egg laying period. The need for an application can be based on historical monitoring of the site, previous records or experiences, current season adult trapping or other methods. Optimum control will be achieved when applications are made prior to egg hatch of the target pests, followed by sufficient irrigation or rainfall to move the active ingredient through the thatch.

Applications should not be made when turfgrass areas are waterlogged or the soil is saturated with water. Adequate distribution of the active ingredient cannot be achieved when these conditions exist. The treated turf area must be in such a condition that the rainfall or irrigation will penetrate vertically in the soil profile. Applications cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pints (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS

MERIT 2F Insecticide is for use on ornamentals in commercial and residential landscapes and interior plantscapes. MERIT 2F Insecticide is a systemic product and will be translocated upward into the plant system from root uptake. To assure optimum effectiveness, the product must be placed where the growing portion of the target plant can absorb the active ingredient. The addition of a nitrogen containing fertilizer, where applicable, into the solution may enhance the uptake of the active ingredient. Application can be made by foliar application or soil applications; including soil injection, drenches, and broadcast sprays. Foliar applications offer locally systemic activity against insect pests.

When making soil applications to plants with woody stems, systemic activity will be delayed until the active ingredient is translocated throughout the plant. In some cases, this translocation delay could take 60 days or longer. For this reason, applications should be made prior to anticipated pest infestation to achieve optimum levels of control.

For outdoor ornamentals, broadcast applications cannot exceed a total of 1.6 pints (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

NOTE: Not for use in commercial greenhouses, nurseries, or on grasses grown for seed, or on commercial fruit and nut trees.

    5 of 5 stars  Effective Product
    By Gary in Campbell NE. on 06/12/2014
    Verified Purchase

    I used Merit 2F to control white grubs in 3+ acres of lawn turf. While my lawn area is a mixture of grass types the grubs were always a pest and hard to control from year to year. Merit 2F had very quick kill results and looks to have long lasting effective control.

    5 of 5 stars  Easy treatment, long term cure
    By Joe in Havertown, Pa. on 07/10/2015

    I just treated my lawn with Merit 2 F. The treatment is intended to prevent lawn pest damage over the period of a year, so one should not expect visible overnight results. I have great confidence in Merit 2 F from the results I have gotten using premixed products containing Merit. The benefit of Merit 2 F is the cost savings realized by mixing only the amount you need for your application. The only improvement I would suggest in the directions for mixing is to include accurate instructions for making smaller quantities, even though it is a simple math calculation.

    By Rob in Sarasota, Fl on 03/24/2016

    I tried purchasing a similar product from my local landscape supplier, but it did not work like Merit. You can truly see the difference in the green grass that Merit allows you to have. Read the instructions to use the proper amount

  • 5 of 5 stars  Saved My Hemlocks
    By Stephen in North Hampton, NH on 08/14/2016

    I drench-treated several beloved hemlocks newly infested with wooly adelgid two years ago. Wiped it completely out. They're gorgeous again. Also cleared up something wrecking my hollies. Miraculous stuff. So much more economical than the watered-down retail versions.

QHow much product should be dilred in how much water? How much of dilution should be applied to each tree?
I am using this as a soil drench to kill woolly aldegids on hemlocks. How do I know how much product should be diluted per gallon of water? How do I know how much to put on each tree. Average diameter of each tree is 24"

AMost people use a 5 gallon bucket or a large watering can to apply Merit 2F as a soil drench. You will need 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. (3 to 6 mL) of Merit per inch of trunk diameter for trees. The amount of water that is used will vary depending on soil conditions and volumes that are easy for applicators to use. The minimum amount of water that should be used is 1 pint per inch of trunk diameter but you may use 1 quart -1 gallon of water per inch of trunk diameter for trees as well. Denser soils such as clay do not accept water as readily, so the lower volume of water is suggested.  Since sandy soils can accept more water, using the higher volume of water is preferred. After the soil drench has been applied you should water it in with at east 1/2 inch of water. Note: Water simply acts as a carrier and it is important that even distribution of the product is achieved. Thus, more water may be used if the applicator feels runoff will not occur and proper penetration of the root zone is achieved. Insecticides applied to the soil are taken up by the roots and translocated throughout the tree or shrub. Root/soil drenches offer the advantage of requiring no special equipment to apply (other than a bucket or watering can). However, surface layers of organic matter, such as mulch or leaf litter, can bind the insecticide and reduce uptake. 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.

QDoes it work on grub worms? How diluted? Oz/sq.ft.? When to apply?
We had Japanese beetles last year here in eastern PA. Their eggs ate my grass. I spread dylox spores in August of last year once I realized what it was (the experts at trugreen never figured it out and after the visits I took over).

AYes, Merit 2F does kill Grubs , the larva of the Japanese Beetle. You would use 0.46-0.6 oz in one gallon of water and use one gallon of finished solution per 1,000 square feet.

QCan I use Merit 2F for grub control?
If I use this for grubs, early now frost just gone, will it get rid of grubs/moles ?? was told this would work, & also mixture for sprayer, 1 1/3 acre with house. K.

AThe Merit 2F can be applied to yard for grub control and should be put down around the end of May to the beginning of June when grubs will start being most active. You can apply it at the appropriate rate per the product label for grub control a few times throughout the season to keep them under control. While grubs are one food source for moles, they are not the only food source for them and ridding your yard of grubs should not be your only method of control if moles are your primary problem. We have several products for moles that you can view HERE: Mole Control.

QIs Mallett 2F T & O, Xytect 2F, Amtide 2F, and Merit 2F the same product?
I WOULD BE USING THIS FOR BIRCH BORER.

AAll listed products use Imidicloprid. They can all be applied as an insect systemic. They do however have different manufacturers. Be sure to review the labels as they do have a few differences. Please let us know if you have any more questions.

QHow does Merit 2F compare to Merit 75 WP?
I have four maple trees that are infested with aphids. I have always used Merit WP and was very happy with the results. How does the WP and 2F compare both in results and cost?

A

Both Merit 2F and Merit 75 WP are systemic concentrates containing the active ingredient Imidacloprid. Merit 2F is a liquid concentrate (Flowable) with 21.4% active ingredient, while Merit 75 WP is a Wettable Powder containing 75% active ingredient. When using Merit 2F, use 0.1 to 0.2 fl. oz. of concentrate per inch of trunch diameter, per the product label. You will then uniformly apply the dosage in no less than 10 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet as a drench around the base of the tree, directed to the root zone. Remove plastic or any other barrier that will stop the solution from reaching the root zone. When applying Merit 75 WP, use .7 to 1.4 level teaspoons per inch of trunch diameter, or 1 to 2 ounces per 30 cumulative inches of trunk diameter, and apply the same way as the Merit 2F, according to the product label.

 

If you have many trees to treat, Merit 2F would be more economical. If you only have a few small trees, then the Merit 75 WP 2 oz. jar would probably be enough product for you.

QIs Merit 2F Insecticide good for a soil injection to protect from emerald ash borers?

AMerit 2F Insecticide is an excellent choice for a soil injection systemic control for emerald ash borers. Please refer to the product label prior to application for complete usage instructions. You will need to have measurements of the trees diameter or the shrubs height to determine how much product you will need to apply. Please let us know if you need anything else.

QI bought the Merif 2 F product - would like to use it on my pine trees for moth control
Have problems with the new growth being killed off my the larva of the moth how do I use this product - in the soil or do I spray it and how much per tree, trees are about 15 feet

AWe would recommend to apply Merit 2F Insecticide as a systemic around the base of the trees. Most people use a 5 gallon bucket or a large watering can to apply Merit 2F as a soil drench.

QCan you use Merit on houseplants?
Can you use Merit liquid Systemic Insecticide on potted plants? I have a terrible scale and mealy bug infestation. If so, what is a good ratio. If not, what is a good liquid systemic for houseplants or potted trees?

AMerit 2F Insecticide is labeled to be used in greenhouses but is not labeled to be used in potted plants.

You could use Bonide Systemic Insect Control. You will use 3 teaspoons per gallon of water and spray the entire plant covering both sides of the foliage thoroughly. Since you are treating potted plants, we would recommend taking the plants outside if at all possible to treat and then bringing them in once you have completed the project.

QHow do I dilute Merit 2F Insecticide for use on grapes?
I have 200 grape vines. How much Merit would be used in 5 gallons of water to do a ground soak around trunk of vine to get an equivalent of 32 ounces per acre.

A

Merit 2F is only labeled to be used on grapes for leafhoppers and mealybugs. †Per the product label the rate is 1.5 fl oz per 100 gallons, this breaks down to about 0.015 oz per gallon. †If you need to treat for anything other than the listed pests we would recommend ImidaPro 4SC which is labeled for a few other pests. †If you need to treat for any other pest not listed on the label†we suggest you contact your local Department of Agriculture to find the best solution for you.
