Merit 2.5 G Ornamental Insecticide
Merit 2.5 G is a very effective long lasting systemic insecticide that stops and prevents insect damage. It is a easy to use granule with low odor and no phytotoxicity on a wide range of ornamentals. Merit 2.5 G is for use on ornamental shrubs and small trees in outdoor landscapes and interior plantscapes. Merit 2.5 G is a systemic product and will be taken up by the roots and translocated upward within the plant system. Therefore watering after the application makes the product available for uptake. Systemic activity using this soil application treatment can be delayed until the active ingredient is translocated throughout the plant. For this reason, applications work best when made prior to pest infestation or before pest populations become severe.
