Have any of you used Merit 75 WSP on Pecan Trees for Honeydew drop and have you applied it as a drench around the base?

Nope, but Orthene works well cuz of its systemic properties.

If the pecans are for edible use, you probably want to use a contact foliar spray.

Plus, use an insecticide designed for "sucking" insects.

Best bet...contact your local land-grant university. They probably offer a "fruit/nut tree spraying schedule".

Zinc is an important micronutrient you may also want to incorporate with the insecticide spray for pecans.

Make sure you charge plenty.

Also -- if you're just spraying for aphids on the foliage, you're merely fixing a cometic problem or limiting the amount of honeydew droppings on cars and decks. Aphids will not harm the tree.

Case borers are a different story.

Bottom line: contact your local extension office. Good luck, american.
