Join Wes Rivers, an expert arborist, and Emmett Muennink, a representative from ArborJet, in this informative video as they delve into the world of tree protection and the innovative product triage offered by ArborJet. In their conversation, they focus on Imimectin Benzoate, a true systemic solution designed to combat wood-boring pests while minimizing non-target impacts.

ArborJet, a company committed to environmental responsibility, has pioneered the use of low-dose chemistry applied through trunk injections. By utilizing the tree’s own vascular system, their systemic products travel to the canopy, hitching a ride with the water flow. However, what sets Imimectin Benzoate apart is its unique ability to load into the phloem of the tree, thereby reaching phloem-feeding borers like the Emerald Ash Borer precisely where they reside.

As Wes compares Imimectin Benzoate to other systemics like Imidacloprid and Dinotefuran, he highlights the key distinction. While these alternatives move through the xylem and ultimately remain in the foliage, Imimectin Benzoate completes a round trip, traveling up in the xylem and returning down in the phloem. This two-way systemic action ensures comprehensive coverage and long-lasting effectiveness, especially against wood-boring pests.

The conversation turns to the impressive two-year coverage provided by Imimectin Benzoate, a feature that Wes and Emmett find particularly intriguing. Drawing an analogy to Pepto-Bismol, they explain how this innovative product coats the internal structure of the tree, safeguarding it against wood-boring pests.
