Eric from Bainbridge Indiana writes,
What concentration of Bifen XTS should I use against bagworms?
It is spring and hot here in Indiana all ready. I treated at the end of summer last year and I see allot less bags on the trees and plucking is not possible. I want to treat now and again in the middle of summer all most lost my pine trees, 700' of them.
According to the Bifen XTS product label "Dilute 0.26 to 1.28 fl. oz. of Bifen XTS per 10 gallons of water and apply at the rate of 10 gallons per 4,356 square feet. One gallon of finish spray will treat 435 sq. ft." You will want to use the higher usage rate for a faster knockdown and a longer lasting residual.
