Efficacy of Trunk Micro-injected Dinocide on Scale Insects

A stand of many heavily infested California Pepper Trees Schinus molle (also known as American pepper, Peruvian peppertree, escobilla, false pepper, molle del Peru, pepper tree, peppercorn tree, Californian pepper tree, pirul and Peruvian mastic) located at Old Ranch Country Club, Seal Beach, California, was micro-injected at root crown level approximately 6 inches above soil level with treatments of 2ml, 3ml and 4 ml Dinocide.

Conifer Bark Beetle Abacide (Abamectin) Study

Abacide 2: Three Ips trials evaluated the duration of 1) two high rates (0.4 and 0.8 g AI/inch DBH) of abamectin in 2008-2011; 2) three lower rates (0.4, 0.2 and 0.1 g AI/inch DBH of abamectin after application in fall 2010 or spring 2011; and 3) azadirachtin (Aza-Sol®) and dinotefuran (Safari®) applied via bole spray, soil drench, or trunk injection in spring 2011.

Some Internal Effects of Mauget Tree Injections

BY: Dr. Alex Shigo, Walter  E. Money  and Dale I. Dodds
Journal of Arboriculture 3(11): November 1977

Negligible amounts of discolored wood and cambial dieback were associated with control Mauget injection wounds made 1 year earlier on redmaple, white oak, and shagbark hickory. Injured tissues associated with all wounds were compartmentalized in the wood present at the time of Injection; wood that formed subsequently was not infected.

Palm Petiole Injections Study.. Fla

Palm Petiole Injections with Mauget Products have been employed successfully for decades.

It is a fast and easy method for injecting Palm trees effectively rather then into the trunk.
No damage occurs to the leaves or the trunks.
Materials such as Antibiotics, Insecticides, Fungicides and Nutrients will translocate throughout the entire tree using this method.
It is an alternative method of injecting is the bases of leaf petioles was found to be of definite
therapeutic value in diseased palms.


Armillaria Comparison Treatment Study

A study conducted by Heather Vallier, Ph.D., Plant Pathologist, Cambria, California, comparing 1 vs. 2 annual applications of various trunk micro-injected materials to suppress Oak Root Fungus (Armillaria mellea) over a 2 year period on Blue Gum (Eucalyptus globulus).

Erythrina Gall Wasp

A study conducted by the University of Hawaii at Manoa that evaluated the chemical control of Erythrina Gall Wasp.

Pine Resin Test…

TEST PINE TREES for Mauget Micro-Injections…

Some species of trees in the genus Pinus have very well developed resin ducts in their xylem. During much of the year these trees produce a rapid and sustained flow of resin in response to any wound in either the bark or woody issues. Injection of materials into these trees during these times has been difficult or impossible even with very low volume micro-injection capsules.
