and we have a major problem with the Emerald Ash Borer bug. I would just like some sugestions for good treatments to kill the bug. Also what stuff has the best price?
MSU, Purdue, and UofI, along with the Illinois dept of agriculture recommend merit (Imidacloprid) treatments on a yearly basis, These are done as soil drenches. You also can do Tree-age treatments As a poster mentioned you can use an arbor jet system to inject the trees. Tree-age is Emamectin Benzoate. This treatment last 2 years. I have properties that we have been doing for years without any decline to the trees canopy.
