:) I've been informed by a landscaper to apply Merit granules in the spring
:) to combat scale that is attacking my shrubs (Rhododendron and Andromeda, top
:) branches are turning black).
:) Doing a Google search shows Merit Systemic Insecticide Granules used to
:) control grubs in lawns.
:) My questions: Is Merit the right thing to apply? Where can I buy it if
:) is appropriate? I went to Home Depot and they do not have it. Local nursery
:) does not carry it either.
Imidacloprid granules are listed on the the labels to use for scale,
but I would think a liquid application would show quicker results. I
forget what the Home Depot type stores "home name" for their product
that contains Imidacloprid are, but you may look at the true nurseries
for products of Merit II or Merit Wp or Marathon WP, which are
apllied as a liquid (if they aren't resticted use products). You
might also look at Pest control "supply houses" that may also sell to
Lar. (to e-mail, get rid of the BUGS!!
While looking in the mirror a bit ago,
I noticed that I look more like myself
now than I did a while back.
