Valent Professional Products announced that the California label for Safari 20 SG Insecticide has been expanded to include a basal trunk spray application method. Additionally, a 2 percent granular formulation of Safari has also been registered for use in California.

Safaris is a systemic neonicotinoid with quick uptake and knockdown of a broad spectrum of invasive pests—including whiteflies, Asian citrus psyllid, mealybugs, soft and armored scale.

Now available for use in California in two formulations, Safari can be applied as a basal trunk spray, soil drench, soil injection, foliar spray or granule.

Safari 20 SG
Already available for use in California as a foliar spray, soil drench or soil injection, an amendment to the existing registration in California now permits use of Safari 20 SG as a basal trunk spray. Safari 20 SG is labeled for use in greenhouse and nursery settings, interiorscapes and outdoor ornamental landscapes.

With the basal trunk spray, Safari 20 SG is applied to the bark on the lower 5 feet of a tree trunk until it is visibly wet. The active ingredient in Safari, dinotefuran, is then absorbed through the bark into the tree’s vascular system and transported throughout the plant. The basal trunk spray is simple, intuitive and promises to save applicators valuable time.

Safari 2 G
A granular formulation that is applied dry to the soil, Safari 2 G is approved for use in greenhouse and nursery settings, interiorscapes and outdoor ornamental landscapes.
