Use this product as a foliar spray to provide contact control of larvae, nymphs or adults of the following insect pests: adelgids, aphids, Japanese beetles, lace bugs, leaf beetles (including elm leaf beetles and viburnum leaf beetles), leafhoppers (including glassy-winged sharpshooter), mealybugs, psyllids, sawfly larvae, thrips (suppression) and whiteflies.
Apply when insects first appear and before high pest populations are established, prior to blooming or after all flower petals have fallen off. Retreat when re-infestation occurs, when high pest pressure is observed or repeat applications on an as-needed basis with 10-14 day intervals between applications, not to exceed the maximum rate.
How to Apply
Foliar applications with water must be made as a thorough cover spray to provide uniform distribution. Make application prior to blooming or after all flower petals have fallen off. Spray to wet all foliage (leaves, stems and branches). Target the undersides of the leaves and try to penetrate dense foliage with the spray droplets.
Including backpack, compression, knapsack or tank type sprayers.
For foliar applications mix 1.5 tsp of this product per 1 gallon of water.

Seemed to work
By Will in Nashville on 05/29/2012
I have had very stagnant growth on two maples the last two years. They were covered in scales. Poured this stuff around the base of each on 5/9/2012 and scales are almost all gone three weeks later and the trees are growing like crazy. Frankly did not expect this kind of rebound with any product. Dont know if weather or anything else contributed to the rebound but I am a believer in the product now.

Seems to work on red lily beetles
By Sharon in East Machias, ME on 06/20/2011
A friend said to try this on the horrible red lily beetles that destroyed my Asiatic and oriental lilies last year. I tried to hand pick them off last year, but they kept coming and coming. I couldn't get them under control. Lilies look much better this year. Still have seen 3 beetles, but hand picked and drowned them, and the lily leaves look great. I am very hopeful this will work, and because it it systemic, not hurt the bees.

hopefully good control
By Carol in louisville, ky. on 08/05/2011
This product was easy to use. I liked that I did not need to spray it up into the trees, which would have blown down on me. However, it says it may take four or more weeks to do the trick, and even then I am not sure I will be able to tell if it has killed the varmints (white scale-like growths along the branches). So I have a big question in my mind about the effectiveness. I am hopeful for the best.

Works great. Easy to use and apply.
Tree and Scrub Insect Control
By E in Northfield on 04/22/2016
Easy to order/pay. Product has worked very well in the past. And, once the leaves start to form I am sure the product will keep the tree from being destroyed by the leaf eaters Dick

QI have Leland Cyprus trees that are browning. Will annual tree and shrub insect control concentrate work?
The trees get plenty of water and are well established (20+ years old). I have used the Bayer product that offers fertilization as well, but it's so expensive. I believe the trees may have been attacted by some type of borer. Will this product work? How can I identify the problem?
AIf borers are the issue, then yes, the Bonide Annual tree & shrub insect control concentrate will take care of the issue. The product will take care of many issues, but of course we cannot make any guarantees when you do not know for sure what the issue is. You can call a local lawn and turf company, or landscape company to do a free evaluation of your yard and they can maybe shed some light on the issue your cypress trees are having.

QIs it harmful to use the Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate more than once a season?
AIt is not harmful to use this product more than once per season, however you normally do not use it more than once every 6 months if conditions are bad enough to need a second treatment. The product should last through new growth of the plant for at least 1 year.
QDoes Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate kill ants too?
My aspen trees are covered in ants and they have already killed two of my trees. I need to know if this product also controls my ant problem?
AAnnual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate is not labeled for ants. Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate is a soil drench which is taken up by the root system of the tree and then translocated internally throughout the plant, making it unavailable to any insect that is not feeding directly off of the tree. Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate will control aphids however and ants tend to be naturally drawn to trees that harbor aphids because they produce honeydew, an important food source for the ants. In many cases if you get rid of the aphids the ants ants will go away as well. If you want to directly control the ants you will need to choose a topical product such as Talstar P. You can spray the foliage and also around the base of the plants with Talstar P to control the ant population.

QApplication Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate- totally within the circle area or just at the "band"?
Should this product be applied to the whole area within the circle i.e. from the tree out to the 24" marker or just in a narrow band at the 24" marker?
AAnnual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate works best if applied around the base of the tree. You do not have to apply all the way out to the marker.

QWill Bonide Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate work for a psyllid infestation on a California pepper tree?
My 30 ft. tall pepper tree is infested with psyllid. Is the product potent enough to eliminate this pest when applied in a drenching solution around the trunk? Dosage? Is something else more effective? Thank you for your help.
A Yes, Bonide Annual Tree & Shrub Insect Control Concentrate is labeled to treat for psyllids. The product label recommends a usage rate of 30 oz. per gallon of water for a 30 ft tall tree with a diameter of 10".† You will need to pour this about 2 ft out from the base of the tree and get it evenly applied around the circumference.†

The leaves are being eaten on the outer branches in between the veins of the leaves. Also there are small black droppings on the our deck. Will this help?
AWe apologize but without knowing what insect you are treating for we can not make a recommendation a product or know what would work for you. Please try to take a sample of the insect or the leaves to your local Cooperative Extension Office or your Local Master Gardener to have them identify what you are dealing with.
