Palm Tree Weevil Killer

  • Because of the concealed nature of the larvae, effective methods for the management of the red and other palm weevils have been difficult to develop.
  • Principle method of action for GETG Palm Tree Weevil Killer solution is the insect’s respiratory system, where nano sized soap particles enter the insects tracheal system which suffocates them.
  • This is enabled by virtue of the nano-saponified oils (soaps) in the colloidal solution. We do NOT use nervous or endocrine system toxins.

GETG PALM TREE WEEVIL KILLER

DESCRIPTION
  • There are also secondary methods of action facilitated by various essential oils. The oils dissolve chitin, paralyze the weevils, and provide additional means of suffocation through nano-emulsion.
  • Application is simple and easy, can be fitted to existing watering system and applies without the need for any hazardous precautions. Our Nano-colloidal solution is simply mixed with water, and then applied to the roots of the tree, which is a great step forward in treating this pest.
  • For heavy infestations, we recommend a IV fashioned drip with our solution tapped into the tree for more direct absorption.
