ArborSystems Wedgle Direct-Inject Tree Treatment System was featured in the Palm Beach Post newspaper photo that accompanied the “Whiteflies hit Palm Beach County homeowners’ trees, plants, pools” article.
“Arborists and tree care professionals are using our no drill palm injections of Pointer insecticide to treat spiraling whiteflies instead of foliage spray or soil drenching which fills a homeowner’s yard with chemicals,” said Chip Doolittle, president of ArborSystems. “Treatment is delivered fast and effectively at a known dose rate with virtually no environmental exposure.”
The Aug. 16, 2012 photo caption: “Joseph Siciliano with Tomasello Pest Management drives a needle into the trunk of a coconut palm to treat an infection of Rugose spiraling whitefly.” The photo shows the ArborSystems Tip Setter driving the Palm Tip into the palm as it is designed to penetrate a palm’s outer husk and deliver the ArborSystems Pointer insecticide deep into the inner active layers to treat the Spiral Whitefly. The white fly leaves a sticky secretion called honeydew and sooty mold on patios, walkways, outdoor furniture and vehicles.
The Wedgle is a no-drill tree treatment system -- an easy, fast and tree-friendly way to treat almost any tree in five minutes or less. It is the only tree trunk injection application method that does not require a drilled hole. ArborSystems no-drill method is similar to getting a small scratch or vaccine that heals quickly versus drilling which is comparable to a cut that requires stitches and can be prone to infections. This approach protects trees from further stress and allows trees to put their full energy into recovery.
The Palm and Portle injection tip, used with the Wedgle, has multiple ports along the tip that effectively treats and enhances chemical delivery. A check valve at the tip hub’s rear keeps the chemical in the tree until it is absorbed providing successful trunk injection treatments. There are nine Quick-Connect Injection Tips available for treating hardwoods, conifers and palms.
“Pointer Insecticide is placed inside the tree so children and pets are not exposed to chemical spray or open chemical containers and there is no chemical drift requiring the need to cover outdoor toys, play equipment, pools, furniture or vehicles,” said Doolittle.
