CoreTect Tree & Shrub Insecticide is an incredible product for the homeowner who wants to protect their trees and shrubs without the need to spray pesticides in the air. CoreTect uses the same active ingredient as Merit to provide long term insect control systemically. Rather than spray a soil drench or foliar spray, CoreTect comes in small tablets. Simply use a soil probe around the root zone of the plants to be treated to make holes in the ground then drop the required number of tablets into the hole. By slipping CoreTect straight to the plant roots, you are able to treat trees and bushes for many common pests while not exposing any beneficials such as bees to your application. Best yet, CoreTect integrates a fertilizer in the tablet, so every CoreTect application gives the plant not only insect protection but also Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potassium, Magnesium, Sulfur, and Molybdenum.
