Lecanium scale on Maples

toomnywdsSeptember 25, 2010

We have 3 sugar maples in norther Illinois that are infested with Lecaniun

scale ( no cotton). This year I did a soil drench in the spring using Bonide

tree & shrub containing Imoclipid. It seemed to help. I have read that insecticides that have Safari (Dinoteruran ) work better. Would there be any

problem switching to another product? The trees are 15 " in diameter.

That sounds like a question better answered over the phone with the products question division of Safari. You should be able to find a phone # on the product. You should explain you're wishing to change products and when the soil applications of "Bonide" were performed...
