    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.

    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

QWe plan on using this product on our ash tree for ash borer. When is good time to apply?

AYou  can apply the Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran at any time as long as the ground is not frozen or when the plant is dormant. If you are already seeing activity then you can apply right away.

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.

QWhat is the half-life of this product with respect to the level of water PH when mixed?
We are trying to see how long it takes the product to start to degrade and lose its effectiveness.

AIf kep out of the heat Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran will last between 3-5 years. The mixed solution needs to be used within 24 hours of mixing.

QCan I mix Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran to treat thrips on orchids using a two gallon pump sprayer?
If so, what ratio per gallon can be use for thrips and scale? I am a hobby orchid grower with 18 x 28 greenhouse. I'd like to use Safari to treat thrips on my orchid collection but don't see a ratio for my use.

A

Safari 20SG can be applied in greenhouses for treating scale and thrips but does not specifically list orchids.

We recommend that contact your local cooperative extension office for a product recommendation. Please let us know and we can see if we can get it for you.

QCan I treat borers in a key lime tree with Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide?

A

Safari is not labeled to be used on anything edible.  Â Unfortunately once the beetles have already infested the bark of a lime tree there are not any viable treatment options. In cases of infestation the general recommendation is to simply protect the surrounding trees with preventative sprays with a product labeled for such a use. This can be done using something like Monterey Garden Insect Spray.

QWhat's alternative to Safari 20SG for California?
I've been using Safari 20SG against myaporum thrips successfully (basal trunk application), but now not shippable to CA. What effective alternate product do you recommend?

A

We do have various products that are labeled for thrips that can go to California. ImidaPro 4SC is a very good product that can be used as a basal trunk treatment. It is also labeled for certain edibles as well. If you would like another product that contains the active ingredient Dinotefuran, Zylam Liquid Systemic Insecticide would be a good choice and is labeled for thrips. Be sure to check the product label to be sure that it is labeled for your needs. It also comes in a soluble granule formulation, Zylam 20SG Systemic Turf Insecticide.

QWhat is the residual of the Safari 20 SG?
I am treating False Oleander Scale (Pseudaulacaspis cockerelli) on Banana Shrubs (Michelia figo). The scale is in various stages, including adult, on two shrubs. One, 6' in container, and a second 15-20' in ground. Both are still actively growing in the Houston area. My question is, how long is the residual effect of Safari? I'm ideally looking for an effective systemic that will be inactive by the time the shrubs begin to set flower buds in the spring (to minimize any collateral damage on pollinators such as bees). I wasn't able to locate that information on the product label, so any help you can offer is appreciated. Thanks.

A

Safari 20 SG Systemic Insecticide will typically last between 6 months to 1 year. Please keep in mind that there are many variables that can influence how long a systemic is still active in the target plant such as soil condition, rainfall, and health of the plant.

QHow much Safari 20SG do I mix to treat very large ficus hedges (or trees) that are approximately 40 feet tall?
We have very mature shrubs and trees all throughout the property. We use a 300 gal. spray tank when treating large areas. I would like the foliar and soil drench ratios.

A

Safari 20SG is mixed at 1.0 tsp per gallon of water to cover 200 sq ft. for a foliar spray application for most treatments. Safari 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. You will need to also provide the targeting insect as well. Please review the product label for complete directions.

Qscale on trees too mature for treatment?
hello, wondering if i can send in some pics for you to determine severity of infection. I have read several of the q&a topics and one saying impossible to control scale if it is too far along has me concerned about wasting my money here. Please advise.

AA better option may be to contact your local cooperative extension office. They would better be able to give you an idea of what stage the scale is in on your trees. We would be happy to let you know which products work best for scale.

QCost vs Imidacloprid
It looks like the fertilome may be more cost effective for EAB? However, with Dinoteguran as a trunk spray you don't have to worry about soil moisture and leaf debris. So Dinoteguran may be more likely to succeed?

AWhat exactly would you be treating for? The best product to use is based on that versus the treatment method.

QCan Safari 20SG be used to treat bronze birch borer in birch tees?
I have a white birch with borer holes on the trunk and foliage thinning on the top 1/3 of the canopy. What is the best method to apply? How does the effectiveness compare to other systemic insecticides?

ASafari 20SG  is not labeled to treat Bornze Birch Borer. Bronze Birch Borer can be difficult to treat. You can try Merit 75.You will dilute the 1.6 oz pack in at least 10 gallons of water and pour the dilution around the base of the tree. You will need to use 1.6 oz (1 packet) MERIT 75 WSP per 24 to 48 inches of trunk diameter.
