Every area of the country is different. And every chemical is different. What are you seeing in your area? How is the weather? Is it thawing? Are there buds on the trees? What are you treating? Insects/pests or diseases? What type of chemical are you using? There is no easy answer as the Wedgle injects chemical directly into the cambial zone, right where the tree can use it. Just because the calendar says spring doesn’t mean the weather knows it. So how do you find out the answer? Check your label included with the chemical or go online by clicking here.
You aren’t the only one. Try the easy way! Use a garden hose and snap the hose end adaptor that came with your unit right onto the top coupler. Turn the water on, gently at first, and start priming the injector with water (check valves can handle reasonable water pressure so don’t worry). Pump the handles 10-20 times. Turn off the water and remove the adaptor. There should be some water inside the inlet where you would normally put the container. Pull back the handles and if the injector is primed, water should be drawn into the injector. For complete how-to, training, use and maintenance videos, click here.

As soon as the trees start growing in your area. And remember with the Wedgle, there is No drilling of trees. Chemical is injected directly through the bark without drilling. No air enters the sapwood so chemical is readily absorbed. The vascular system is undisturbed, maintaining nutrient movement, upward and laterally. The chemical is injected into the cambial zone where the tree can use it effectively. You’ll see improved results from less chemical. Contact your distributor now to order your product and be ready for this year’s growing season. For more information, click here.
So maybe you didn’t store your Wedgle properly. You aren’t the only one but we can help. First, call your distributor and order your Wedgle annual maintenance kit. Next, decide how you are going to clean it…in a bucket of water or with the garden hose adapter. You can watch a video on our website to decide which way works for you. But here is a quick overview on one easy method. Submerge your unit in a bucket of water until the top QC coupler is underwater and squeeze the handles five to ten times. Then remove the injection tip from the unit and replace the dust plugs on both QC couplers. Or for more information, click here.
