If you are a homeowner in Wisconsin, you’ve probably heard about the Emerald Ash Borer or EAB. This 1/2 inch beetle burrows into Ash trees and lay larvae into the trees that feed on the inner bark which disrupts the flow of water and nutrients to the tree. When a tree becomes infected, it starts to die and becomes a hazard to homes, vehicles and people. You can choose to remove the trees or treat it with Micro Mauget Injections.

Micro Mauget Injections

These small medicine caps are also used for fertilization, and insect & disease control.  This type of treatment is a direct injection into the tree trunk, which acts quicker.  This method of treatment is preferred as an environmentally friendly option to spraying pesticides into the air. If the applications are for trees only (not shrubs), and/or if the tree has a critical problem that needs aggressive treatment. It is also one of two main treatment options for gypsy moth and Emerald Ash Bore control.

We also can add Merit to our spring or fall deep root fertilizer mix or separately. Merit injected (also referred to as soil drench) into the root zone of trees and shrubs is a systemic pesticide which is a popular treatment in preventing many pest problems, including Emerald Ash Bore.

Mauget also offers a product that works well in preventing Apple Scab.  This product must be injected in early spring before bud break.  This is a one time application as an alternative to spraying multiple times throughout the season.
