    1 of 5 stars  White flies on coconut trees
    By Doug in Matlacha, FL on 04/27/2013
    Verified Purchase

    I followed directions and applied four times over a three week period. It didn't have any effect on white flies on coconut trees in SW Florida. I used Dominion 2L and it worked with one treatment in three weeks. Only cost $75 for three bottles to do 20 trees. Spent over $500 on Safari. Very disapointed. DMOPC was excellent to deal with on both products.

    5 of 5 stars  Safari keeps the scale off of our Sago Palm
    By David in Sun City Center, FL on 06/04/2014
    Verified Purchase

    We noticed that our Sago Palm had terrible problems with scale last year. I read that the University of Florida recommended Safari to rid Sago palm's of scale. I apply it to the soil around our palm in May and September. It has worked well and our palm tree is again looking good. The price found here was the best that I could find and their delivery is quite prompt.

    4 of 5 stars  Safari 20SG
    By Jeff in Blue Ridge, GA on 05/28/2014

    I bought two 3 pound bottles to tree my hemlock trees in Fannin County, GA. I recommend that you find a clean container to hold your water and this chemical. Mix thoroughly in it first and then transfer to your sprayer.

    4 of 5 stars  Saving Coconut Palms
    By William in Punta Gorda, FL on 05/19/2014
    Verified Purchase

    Injected Dinotefuran into the coconut palms via a 1/4" hole, 2" deep. (The trees are 9" diameter.) One hole per tree. With a syringe, I filled the hole(s) twice a day for two weeks. The trees sucked up the "medicine". After two weeks, the fronds had stopped dropping. It works !

    5 of 5 stars  Very Happy with Safari 20SG
    By Michael in Miami, FL on 04/22/2015
    Verified Purchase

    After using a Merit (Imidacloprid) soil drench for fig whitefly, I read about basal trunk applications of Safari for that pest and decided to give it a try. My Ficus has multiple trunks that together are about 6 feet in diameter and I was never clear how much Merit to use, nor was I confident that the roots, many of which are under a road, was really taking up the Imidacloprid. I knew that any not taken up by the roots could be leaching into our ground water, and that caused me great concern. Safari, while twice as expensive as Merit for the quantity I needed, is applied as a basal trunk spray, so almost all of the solution is absorbed by the trunk rather than soaking into the ground. The label -- which actually addresses multiple trunked trees like my Ficus -- said it would take 1-3 weeks for the chemical to be translocated throughout the tree but I began seeing a reduction in leaf drop (a symptom of fig whitefly infestation) within a few days. It has only been 1 1/2 weeks since the initial application but so far I am very pleased. With Merit, it would take weeks to see any reduction in leaf drop, if I saw any at all. With a tree as large as mine, a 12 oz container of Safari will only treat one time at a cost of around $120, but so far I believe the cost is worth it given that the application is supposed to be good for a year.

    5 of 5 stars  eradicating myaporum thrips in California with Safari
    By Richard in Pacific Grove, Ca on 03/04/2015
    Verified Purchase

    Too soon to tell if the basal trunk application will be successful but that's what local pest control companies would have done for SUBTANTIALLY more cost than buying the Safari from DoMyOwn PestControl. This company is easy to work with with outstanding customer service. I highly recommend them and doing your own pest control is not all that difficult and the cost savings is outrageous.

QThere does not seem to be any instructions for use of Safari as a basal truck spray. ie. Hemlock Wooly Adelgid

ASafari can be applied as a basal trunk spray.  It is part of a supplemental label that is distributed by the manufacturer separately.  Here is a link to an application video with Safari from the manufacturer you should watch: http://www.valent.com/professional/products/safari/video.cfm

QWill Safari 20SG kill carpenter worms?
I'm arborist and own a tree service; I've come across a Red Oak that has a number of problems, besides the borers for which I recommended a systemic insecticide {safari or Bayer landscape} , the tree also has misltoe, Hypoxylon canker which are being removed if the damage is to great. However the other day I found a couple carpenterworms in the tree and am concerned that there is a bigger infestation in the tree and was concerned that the systemic insecticides would not affect the carpenterworm.

ASafari is not labeled for carpenter worm control and would likely only help provide control of the insects if they are sprayed directly before they bored beneath the bark. Systemic insecticides in general will not work for this pest because they live just beneath the bark. Unfortunately control is usually limited to only mechanical control by probing the tunnels with a wire to kill pupa, larva and eggs and then sealing the holes or destroying heavily infested trees.

QWill Safari 20SG prepared as a soil drench control scale on a pin oak?
Pin oak is planted in a 3 foot strip of soil between the road and sidewalk in a subdivision. No wonder it's stressed!

ASafari is certainly labeled to control scale, but honestly if will control it or not will depend more on what type of scale it is (soft or armored) and what life cycle/stage it is in as more mature stages can be almost impossible to control. Can you give us more information or see if a pest control company in your area can identify the type of scale you have?

QWill Safari kill white flies and aphids in an orchids greenhouse?
How many times do I have to spray, and what is the application per gallon of water for misting system set 1:100? Is a 3lb size in liquid or solids??

AYes, Safari is labeled for white flies and aphids in a greenhouse. You would spray once and if it is necessary to do a second application, it should be done 14-21 days after the inital one. The application is 1:100. It is a water soluble granule.

QTreatment for Benjamin and Spiraling Whitefly
Safari 20SG is labeled for whitefly. If it isn't too much trouble, I have 3 questions pertaining to this product as I have both Spiraling and Benjamin whitefly: 1) the spiraling whitefly is so much LARGER than other whitefly varieties, should the dosage be adjusted for a larger bodied insect? 2) looking at the label directions for trees/large hedges on their site (link below), soil drench instructions indicate by grams or ounces but do not indicate the amount of "finished solution" to be applied as they do for containers. Are the directions provided meant as grams/ounces per 100 gallons which would require a finished product equivalent like their potted plants or is this application rate per tree? 3) is it preferable to use trunk diameter or hedge height since hedges are merely shaped trees and could potentially have a larger trunk than would be supported by the height of the hedge? This information would be helpful in determining the amount I will need to purchase. LINK: http://www.valenttrainingmodules.com/safari/index.cfm?page=15 Many thanks in advance for your assistance with this! Please feel free to edit as necessary if you choose to place on the Q&A section of the Safari website. Mark

ASafari is a fairly complicated product to use and we want to make sure you are getting the correct usage information so we are recommending that you contact Valent directly. You can reach Valent by calling 800-682-6368.

QI understand that Safari will control bagworms. What's the best application for 30 foot pine trees?

A

Safari is not labeled for and is not recommended for bagworm control. We do not know of any systemic that is left on the market that will work for bagworm control.

Bagworm recommendations:

It is important to start control methods before a major infestation occurs. Once the bagworms have matured and have formed the "bag" most chemical control methods will no longer work.

You can manually control bagworms by simply plucking them off of the infested trees and dropping them into a bucket of soapy water or squishing them.  This control method is most useful during fall, winter and early spring, before the eggs inside the bag have hatched.

Chemical control may be achieved when the larvae are small and just emerging from the over-wintering bag.  Use a concentrated liquid insecticide such as Talstar or Tempo. Foliage should be thoroughly whetted with the insecticide spray in order to achieve thorough coverage.  When doing an insecticide treatment, timing is key. To find out the correct time of year to treat for bagworms in your region contact you local Cooperative Extension office. These offices can prove to be invaluable when treating for insect pests.

QTo control spidermites on a tropical plant in a home should I Safari systemic granules or foliar spray?

ASafari 20SG cannot be used indoors and it is not labeled for spider-mite control. We are unaware of any systemic product that is labeled for indoor use for spider-mite control. Instead we would recommend a foliage spray product such as Talstar P which is labeled for use on ornamental plants indoors and is also labeled for spider-mites.
