No-drilling system to fight emerald ash borer

ArborSystems adds Emamectin Benzoate insecticide-miticide for two-year control of Emerald Ash Borer to their direct-inject chemical line that is used in their Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Injection System.
“Arborists, urban foresters and tree care professionals can now provide two-year control of EAB with no drilling damage using our new product, Boxer Insecticide-Miticide,” said Chip Doolittle, president of ArborSystems in Omaha, NE. “Applicators can increase the number of trees treated per day using our advanced technology for tree treatment.”
Boxer Insecticide-Miticide is available in 120 ml and 1000 ml Quick-Connect Chemical Packs. It is for the control of mature and immature insect and mite pests of deciduous and coniferous trees and palm trees including those growing in residential and commercial landscapes, parks, plantations, seed orchards and forested sites in private, municipal, state, tribal and national areas. Boxer contains the active ingredient Emamectin Benzoate and is formulated to translocate in the tree’s vascular system when injected. It must be placed into active sapwood and will actively control pests for up to two years.
Pests controlled by Boxer include Ambrosia Beetles, Aphid, Bagworm, Clearwing Borers (such as Ash and Sequoia Pine Pitch Tube Moth), Cone Beetle (Conopthora spp.), Conifer Mites, Cynipid Gall Wasp, Fall Webworm, Flatheaded Borers (such as adult and larvae of Bronze Birch Borer, Emerald Ash Borer and Two-lined Chestnut Borer), Gypsy Moth, Honeylocust Plant Bug,  Leafminers (such as Coleoptera, Hymenoptera, Lepidoptera), Mimosa Webworm, Oak Worm, Pine Cone Seed Bug (suppression of Leptoglossus and Tetyra spp. in the year of treatment), Pine Coneworm (Dioryctria spp.), Pine Needle Scale, Pinewood Nematode, Red Palm Mite, Roundheaded Borers (excluding Asian Longhorn Beetles), Sawfly (such as Elm, Pine), Tent Caterpillars (such as Eastern, Forest, Pacific and Western), Tussock Moth, Western Spruce Budworm and Winter Moth.
The Wedgle is a no-drill tree treatment system — an easy, fast and tree-friendly way to treat almost any tree in five minutes or less. It is the only tree trunk injection application method that does not require a drilled hole. Also there is no mixing in the field, waiting for uptake of chemicals, guarding during draining process, need for power, pumps or return trips by applicators.
ArborSystems chemicals are used with their Direct-Inject Tree Injection System as an injection into the flare or base of the tree to ensure even distribution through the tree’s vascular system. It places the chemical deep into the active areas where it can be easily absorbed. Chemicals are delivered fast and effectively at a known dose rate with virtually no environmental exposure associated with foliage spray, soil injection or drenching,
“Tree trunk injections are a tree-friendly way to treat trees and plants by tree, turf and ornamental specialists and are people friendly too,” said Doolittle. “Children and pets are not exposed to chemical spray or open chemical containers and there is no need to cover outdoor toys, play equipment, pools, furniture or vehicles.”
