Mallet 0.5 G Imidacloprid Granular Insecticide, Generic Merit provides the industry’s longest-lasting grub control at exceptionally low use rates. This product gives outstanding residual control of numerous ornamental pests – it interferes with nerve impulses and disrupts insect behavior. Pests stop feeding, stop reproducing and eventually die. Both curative and preventative, Mallet Granules holds a ten-year record of 90% effectiveness on virtually every species of turf and ornamental pests. Merit even improves the quality of your turf. Mallet 0.5 G is for broadcast application on and around turfgrass, ornamentals, trees, shrubs, flowers, groundcovers, and in and around commercial or residential buildings. Apply Mallet 0.5 G uniformly over area being treated with normally used granular application equipment. Both drop-type and rotary-type spreaders may be used. Avoid using a spreader which would apply the product in narrow bands. For optimum control, product application should be followed by mechanical incorporation, irrigation, or rainfall, to help move the active ingredient into the soil.
