    I like using Orthene 75 Pro it is locally systemic and lasts longer for me than contact insecticides. I mix it at 1 lb. per 100 gal. and repeat sometimes in 25 days upon inspection. Remember that any insecticide labeled for these beetles will work, but the beetle will do some feeding before they are going to be controlled.
    (Customer should be aware of this before the spraying is done, they may expect miracles to happen). If you are looking for quick knock down like right now, I suggest using any product containing Permithrin.
