Scott from St. Pete, Fl writes,
Can I use Talstar P as a drench?
I have a 50 ft banyan tree that is about 15ft around that got infested last year and lost all of the leaves. It has grown back over the winter and I don't want to go threw that again. I want prevent it now if I can. Thanks
Talstar P does not work as a systemic insecticide and that seems to be what you are looking for. You should consider using a product that contains Imidacloprid such as the Adonis 2F. Adonis 2F can be used as a soil drench around the tree and the product will be translocated through the tree. You will need to use .2 oz - .4 oz of Adonis 2F per inch of trunk diameter at breast height.
