Implants work from inside the tree to fight a long list of damaging insects.

You simply drill a 3/8in x 1-1/4in hole every 4in around the tree. Push the implant in and your tree is protected for 12-18 weeks (up to 320 days for pines). This enviro-friendly delivery method keeps the treatment right where it belongs. Contains acephate (orthene), not for use on fruit, nut, or syrup trees; or trees under 3in diameter. Recent USDA and university tests prove that Acecap implants prevent and control Emerald Ash Borer.
