Japanese Beetle Prevention - Soil Injections Now Available!
Decrease damage to your plants and trees by treating your trees with a soil injection before the adult beetles emerge. The soil injection introduces the insecticide into the root system of your trees and landscape plants, where their roots absorb it. From there it is translocated through the vascular system and into the leaves where it will remain during the feeding stage. The soil injection occurs once per year before the adult beetle emerge.
Preventive soil injections are available from the spring thaw until mid to late June and again from September until the ground freezes. Once beetles emerge, post emergent sprays are available if needed. If you have Linden or Crab Apple trees, the schedule for treatment is slightly different.
