    never used the product at all, isn't it suppose to translocate through the leaf to the other side? osmosis like?

    good luck if its a crape myrtle that has developed a nasty case of black sooty mold also:)

    Safari works extremely fast and well! I just drenched my Hibiscus 2 days ago with Safari/Miracle Gro on the back deck, and ALL Aphids are long gone :)

    Reapply/Drench soil again in 6 weeks. 3rd application use another insecticide labeled for whitefly like Acephate/Orthene, so you dont create resistant insects.

    Safari is my all time favorite Systemic. Way less toxic that Temik.

    Camileas were usually hardest hit when I worked in San Antonio. Back then, we had good luck with Malathion or Orthene. Periodic sprays were often needed.
