ISCA Technologies' SPLAT Verb is an environmentally friendly repellent that provides sustained and controlled release of the verbenone anti-aggregation pheromone. Verbenone is naturally released by infested trees at the end of a mass attack. The presence of verbenone signals new MPB approaching the infested tree that it is already too overcrowded to serve as a suitable host. By applying SPLAT Verb to a healthy and un-infested tree, host-seeking MPB will identify a tree as an undesirable host and leave it unharmed.
How to Use:
Each tree requires at least 70 grams of SPLAT Verb. Apply four 17.5 gram dollops of SPLAT Verb evenly spaced around the tree at 6-7 ft high. Each dollop should be 2 inches in diameter.
Each tube is enough for 10 trees
