    What temps and soil moisture conditions are you talking about? But to answer your question, no

    Double check for ash anthracnose or something else that may have coincided with those dates.

    i've always been curious, why inject the trees when you can do a soil treatment with xytect? is it just to get the extra year of coverage?

    If you like dowsing the ground with imidacloprid, go for it. Just make sure you wear your PPE.

    Larger trees dont respond as well to soil applied neonics Waldo. Also, we can get 3 years with an em ben injection.

    We contacted the manufacturer and they claim some trees ; in rare cases have an allergic reaction. We use em Ben because it is the most effective product available.

    "Allergic Reaction" sounds more like a toxic batch of em ben, I would guess the carrier agents/solvents

    Sometimes, not very often of the hundreds ash trees we treat, we do get a few trees that do drop a very small portion of their leaves. Absolutely nothing to worry about and is only temporary.
