Over the coarse of the last several years, southern US landscapes have lost as much as 70% of their king and queen sagos (cycads) due to the relentless attack of Cycad Aulacaspis Scale (CAS), a small white scale from Asia.
CAS is first noticed after it has established on the undersides of the dark green fronds changing them to a glowing white, so that the Cycads resemble a small flocked Christmas tree. This flocked appearance is somewhat attractive, but the Sagos react adversely to the piercing-sucking feeding activity of this scale and turn brown and die within a quick two to three year period.
Forestry Distributing stocks a wide range of products for the management and control of Cycad Aulacaspis Scale (CAS).
Systemic treatments applied as soil drenches have proven to provide the most effective control including the insecticides Safari 20SG (Dinotefuran) and Zylam Liquid (Dinotefuran);
Insect growth regulators including Distance IGR;
Insecticides including, Merit (Imidacloprid) and Dimethoate 400 (Dimethoate)
Safari 20SG's new generation active ingredient, dinotefuran, controls a broad range of difficult pests including: Emerald Ash Borer, Adelgids, Japanese Beetles, Leafminers, Scales, Thrips, Whiteflies and more.
