Tree injections

I am licensed to spray ornamentals.

The problem is many property's are bordering lakes and such and I seldom if ever get good conditions for spraying there.

I know the idea that opening a wound on a tree may do more harm than good.
But these trees need to be cared for.

Does anyone have experience with the Maujet or the wedgil injection systems.

I have looked into both of them and the wedgil seems like a better choice.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Bob

we used mauget for awhile. I got tired of sending our guy back out to get the $85 drill he left behind.
Another experience was doing a large property, started with the trees in front work around to back. When finished in back walked back to truck and low and behold....2 kids pulling and twisting at them! Not good!

Swithched to widgle system, no more lost or forgotten drills and its quicker as well.

The Mauget can be slow waiting for the trees transpiration to take up the chemical. They don't work on cloudy days. It's better than trying to spray monster trees though.

Are you guys using the wedgle tip getting control?

The Koritz soil injector is my favorite application method.

I'm using it mostly for EAB (Emerald Ash Borer) using Merit. Results so far, are good.

I have always used Mauget, but would be open to changing (my knees and back ache!). How much is the Wedgil system?
