Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran

Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran is a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown, and controls a broad spectrum of ferocious and invasive pests, including Q- and B-biotype whitefly, hemlock woolly adelgid, emerald ash borer, mealybug, leafminer, fungus gnat, black vine weevil, glassy-winged sharpshooter, armored and soft scale and lacebugs some of the most costly pests that affect high value greenhouse and nursery crops such as poinsettia and hibiscus, as well as trees, shrubs and herbaceous ornamentals in the lawn and landscape market.




Application to Ornamental Plants:

  • Safari 20 SG Insecticide can be applied as a foliar spray, a broadcast spray, a soil drench, soil injection and via chemigation for insect control in ornamental plants in greenhouses, nurseries, outdoor landscapes and interior plantscapes.
  • Safari 20 SG Insecticide is a systemic product and will be taken up by the root system and translocated upward throughout the plant. When applied as a foliar spray, the product offers translaminar and locally systemic control of foliar pests.
  • When applied to the soil, Safari 20 SG Insecticide will be translocated more quickly in herbaceous plants than in woody shrubs and trees. Speed of insect control will range from as little as one day for small herbaceous plants in containers, to several weeks in large trees growing in the landscape.

Application to Vegetable Transplants:

  • Safari 20 SG Insecticide can be applied as a foliar spray or a broadcast spray for insect control in vegetable transplants.

Applications to Ornamental Plants, and Vegetable Transplants:

Safari 20 SG Insecticide can be applied using many different types of application equipment. Apply in sufficient water to ensure good coverage of ornamental plants. Tank mixing with a surfactant will produce better coverage when making applications to plants with hard to wet foliage such as holly or pine. If concentrate or mist type spray equipment is used, apply the same amount of Safari 20SG on the sprayed area as would be used in a dilute solution. To assure optimum effectiveness, Safari 20SG must be placed where the growing portion of the target plant can absorb the active ingredient. Applications can be made to foliage or as a soil drench.

    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.

    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.

    5 of 5 stars  Great product! Directions for use on palms would be helpful
    By Cheryl in Spring Hill, FL on 09/05/2016

    We just got around to using this product a few weeks ago. We used it to treat our sago palms for Cycad Aulacaspis scale. This product was what our County Extension recommended. There were no specific directions for what amount to use for sago palms, so we guessed at what strength to try. We used one teaspoon per gallon of water and used a hand pump sprayer to apply it. Within just a few days we noticed a big improvement in our palms. The scale became powdery and fell off when brushed, so we used a garden hose on high pressure to blast a lot of it off. We followed up the initial treatment with Safari a couple of weeks later, and the scale is nearly all gone from the palms now. We will treat a third time in a few more weeks, and I fully expect the Safari to eradicate the scale after that.

    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

02/27/2013 James from Boles, Ar The Tree Is In Ft. Smith Ar.

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 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.

Used as a soil drench

QIs Safari 20SG harmful to caterpillars if sprayed in the same greenhouse?
The insecticide was applied directly to some grasses in a greenhouse, with care to avoid a caterpillar host plant on an adjacent table. However, I am still worried that if a small amount got onto the host plant, it would be harmful to any larvae that ingest it.

A

It is possible that caterpillars will be affected if Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran is applied directly to the plants that they are consuming. If they are just sprayed in the same greenhouse, the product should not affect them.

QHow much Safari 20SG and water do I use for trunk spray of a Hemlock that is 24 inches in diameter and infested with wooly adelgids?
About one third of the needles are gone. Tree is about 60 feet high.

A

Per page 9 of the Safari 20SG supplemental label for basal trunk spray the rate will vary depending on your dilution rate.  You would use 12 – 24 oz per gallon of water.  Depending on bark type and thickness, one gallon of spray solution will typically cover 65-85” of cumulative trunk diameter.

QWhat is the correct ratio to use for a trunk application of Safari 20 SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran in spruce trees?
I have 6 4 inch diameter spruce trees with a one gallon sprayer. It says to use 12-24 ounces of Safari. Is that 3-6 cups?

A

Per the product label on the Safari 20SG Systemic Insecticide with Dinotefuran you would use 1.0 - 2.1 ounces per 10 feet of height of the tree. As a soil drench: Mix required does in water and uniformly apply to soil around base of shrub or tree. Pull back mulch before drenching. Apply 1-4 pints of drench solution per foot of inch of trunk diameter of trees. Adjust drench volume based on soil type, soil moisture, and thickness of mulch so that product is moved into root zone. To enhance soil penetration in heavy soils and sloping terrain, dig shallow holes around tree and shrub, and apply drench solution in holes. Lower drench volumes may be less effective in dry soils or when applied over heavy mulch unless there is adequate rainfall or irrigation after application to move product into root zone.
