hey john ..

i suspect you are going to have to be a bit more specific ..

if you use the bayer SYSTEMIC.. and it treats the tree for a year..

then once the suckers come out.. and start sucking.. they should be covered ...

care to specify which product???

Unless it is satated on the label that the product will kill the eggs it will not. The products listed above are broad spectrum, long lasting poisons that also kill off beneficial insects and create major problems in the environment. Anyone concerned about the world we are leaving our grandchildren will not use them.

all labels also have a phone number on them.. and i have been known to call them directly.. and ask such questions ...

a better question/post would be what are you fighting.. and how to go about killing that plague.. rather than all out nuclear war on a prophylactic manner ... on all things living in your yard ...

surely you arent considering all of them at once??

though one day i did such.. i now dont act proactively.. but actually ID a problem.. and selectively go after it.. if ever ... there just arent that many things that require proactively .. IMHO ...

One of the best products for killing the eggs of many types of insects and mites is horticultural oil.

What types of insects are you most concerned about?

That's a good word for Ortho products; "killer" Just kill everything that gets in the way. Really intelligent...

Products that kill insect eggs usually list the word "ovicide" on their label.
