Have more than 10 trees to treat? Xytect is your solution for invasive pest protection, including the prevention of Emerald ash borer.
Xytect™ 2F, (compares to Merit® 2F,) is a broad spectrum imidacloprid insecticide used to control a wide variety of insect pests including emerald ash borer, Japanese beetle, and bronze birch borer. Xytect™ 2F provides season long control and research proven protection against the most difficult tree pests.
For faster absorption into the tree and effective applications applied later in the growing season, use Transtect. Transtect has a shorter lag time between treatment and control. For example, if an infested tree is discovered in late June/ early July a Transtect soil application can still provide a benefit that year.
