Dr. Daniel A. Herms, a professor of entomology at Ohio State University, has conducted a study showing that soil applications of Safari® Insecticide are providing strong results against the emerald ash borer (EAB), a highly destructive invasive insect which has killed tens of millions of ash trees across the Midwestern and Eastern United States during the past 10 years, and the infestation area is spreading rapidly.
Due to its unique chemical properties (high solubility and low binding to organic matter), high amounts of Safari are rapidly absorbed by ash trees and then transported into the vascular system where EAB feeds. This results in faster control of EAB than with less systemic products and also extends the application window later in the season. Read the full article.
