Where the Wild Things Aren’t.



Safari® 20 SG Insecticide, a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown, controls a broad spectrum of ferocious and invasive pests, including Q- and B-biotype whitefly, Hemlock woolly adelgid, emerald ash borer, mealybug, leafminer, fungus gnat, black vine weevil, glassy-winged sharpshooter, armored and soft scales and lacebug—some of the most costly pests that affect trees, shrubs and herbaceous ornamentals in the landscape and production ornamental markets.


TAKE OUT THE TOUGHEST PESTS
  • Super-systemic: fast uptake, increased concentration
  • Broad-spectrum control, including Q- and B-biotype whiteflies
  • Unsurpassed residual control

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Safari® 20 SG Insecticide can be applied as a foliar spray, broadcast spray, soil drench, soil injection, basal bark spray, and via chemigation for insect control in ornamental plants in greenhouses, nurseries, outdoor landscapes and interior plantscapes.

Safari 20 SG Insecticide is a systemic product and will be taken up by the root system and translocated upward throughout the plant. When applied as a foliar spray, the product offers translaminar and locally systemic control of foliar pests.

When applied to the soil, Safari 20 SG Insecticide will be translocated more quickly in herbaceous plants than in woody shrubs and trees. Speed of insect control will range from as little as one day for small herbaceous plants in containers, to several weeks in larger trees growing in the landscape.

For outdoor and landscape ornamentals, broadcast applications cannot exceed a total of 2.7 lbs of product (0.54 lb active ingredient) per acre per year.
