FAQ – Do you care about tree treatment?

Yes! We care about trees and the treatment of trees. We don’t drill holes to treat trees which causes permanent damage. Our treatment systems do not require chemicals to be mixed at a job site. Unlike other injection methods that use a huge amount of chemicals, the amount of product injected with the Wedgle is extremely low…usually 1 ml of product is injected for every 4” of trunk circumference. So, if you are treating a 12” diameter tree, you would inject 9 ml of an ArborSystems product or approximately 1/3 of a fluid ounce. The product moves up through the xylem and out to the leaves and then it biodegrades. As an aside, the product does NOT move into the flowers. For more information, click here.

FAQ – Or the answers about Honey Bees and ArborSystems Retriever Insecticide.

ArborSystems Retriever Insecticide is a neonicotinoid much like other pesticides but the active ingredient is Acetamiprid. This active ingredient has a high LD50 which means that it doesn’t have the “bad” characteristics of other neonicotinoids. For example, it is 400-600 times less toxic to bees. Acetamiprid has been specifically omitted from neonicotinoid lists whenever bee toxicity is mentioned. But it has the good characteristics of an insecticide in that it can be used for tree treatment of borers, hemlock wooly adelgids and scale insects (see label for a complete pest list). For more information, click here.

Pesticides are in the news…ArborSystems Retriever Insecticide doesn’t present the same risks.

ArborSystems Retriever Insecticide is a neonicotinoid, much like other pesticides, but the active ingredient is Acetamiprid which is different than the ones in the news. Acetamiprid does not present the same risks to bees as other pesticides…400-600 times less toxic to bees. It controls most of the same pests as Pointer Insecticide (active ingredient Imidacloprid) plus Retriever controls caterpillars and many scale insects. Always check the label which provides complete directions for use. For more information, click here.
