If you’ve had to deal with health issues related to trees on your property or at a client’s site, you’ve no doubt heard of Mauget Imicide.
This powerful insecticide is used to treat pest infestations in trees. It can also sometimes be used as a preventive measure if an infestation is suspected in the area that may spread to the surrounding trees.
This has been the go-to treatment for many arborists and homeowners sometimes use this product as well.
Below, we’ll cover the best places to find Imicide online and how you can order it if you feel it fits your needs.
Tipco started well before the internet was even around. Founded in 1977 to sell various Mauget products, they have since moved online and are still a well-known distributor for Maugut and other tree health products.
Most of their Mauget products offer free shipping and they promise to price-match any other known retailer if you happen to find a lower price.
TreeStuff was founded and is still run by tree experts. It was originally a small online retailer but they have grown into one of the larger specialty retailers in the business.
They sell many Mauget products, including Imicide in 2ml or 3mL capsules in packages of 24.
They offer free shipping on all orders over $100. The website doesn’t mention price-matching, but their pricing is generally competitive.
It probably comes as no surprise that Amazon also sells Imicide online. However, it’s important to know that just like all products on Amazon, the item you are looking at may not be sold directly by Amazon. Instead, it may be a third-party seller.
Many of these third parties selling Imicide are well-known retailers for tree health products. However, you should always check who the seller is. This will be listed underneath the “add to cart button”.
Also, be aware of their return policy. It can differ from seller to seller.
Grand Arbor Supply
Grand Arbor usually has all forms of Imicide in stock, from 2mL, 3mL, 4mL, and 1L bottles. Pricing is fair and they do allow for returns up to 30 days for unopened packages.
For shipping errors, they will pay for the return shipping as well.
However, Grand Arbor does not offer free shipping. However, they may occasionally send out email specials that include free shipping on certain orders.
Tree Swag is a relatively new online retailer being only 2 years old. However, they generally have Mauget products in stock or readily available to ship within a day or two.
They offer 2, 3, and 4 mL options but no larger liter bottles.
Shipping is free on orders over $100, so that means most Imicide purchases will qualify.
They also have an ongoing $10 off coupon for all new customers. Make sure to sign up for their newsletter when visiting the site to get the coupon.
Pro Green Supply
Pro Green is another Mauget retailer and we find they usually have a decent stock. However, we are not sure if these are stocked directly by Pro Green or whether they drop ship from another distributor or Mauget. Items do generally arrive in about 7 days for most orders.
With Pro Green, there is no free shipping and we couldn’t find any discount offers on their website or in any recent emails.
A.M. Leonard has been around since 1885 and they are now a large online retailer and distributor of Mauget products and more.
They offer competitive pricing and fast shipping assuming the products are in stock. Thankfully, all items on their website have real-time inventory tracking so you can see exactly how much they have available when ordering.
They also offer features for businesses or landscapers when ordering. Tracking is also available for each order via their website, which is nice, and most smaller retailers don’t offer this.
For larger purchases or landscaping, this can be a better choice due to them being business-friendly and less geared toward the home consumer.
More Information About Mauget Imicide
Arborists and landscaping professionals are likely already familiar with Imicide and its use.
For those who need more information, Imicide is an injection that requires a hole to be drilled into the tree that needs treatment.
For most applications, it’s an 11/64th drill bit that will be required. Holes will have to be drilled about 6 inches apart and away from root valleys. The number of holes will depend on the diameter of the tree.
What Does Mauget Imicde Treat?
Imicide works on a wide variety of pests that can attack trees of all types. The most common pests Imicide works on are:
- Elm leaf beetle
- Japanese beetle
- Lace Bugs
- Pine tip moth larvae
- Scale insects
- Thrips and Whiteflies
One of the advantages of Imicide is that it has a very long residual effect. In many cases, the treatment works to prevent infestations for over a full season. This allows for fewer total treatments and offers strong ongoing protection for your trees.
If you’ve never used Mauget Imicide, you may want to contact the retailer first to ask questions about your specific situation. They should be able to help you find the right product for your needs.
If you do need help, we suggest using one of the larger and more well-established online retailers of Imicide such as Tipco, Treestuff, or A.M. Leonard. These larger retailers will have expert staff that can help advise you on your purchase.
If price is your main concern, then you can shop at almost any retailer on this list. However, most have price matching and if the price fluctuates, most retailers adjust their pricing accordingly.
Hopefully, this information gets you on your way to treating your beloved trees and protecting them from pests. Just remember to follow all safety and application instructions when it comes to using an injectable treatment for tree health. Misuse of the product can be harmful to the tree and the environment.
In the realm of arboriculture and horticulture, the health and vitality of trees are paramount. Trees are not only aesthetically pleasing but play a crucial role in environmental balance and overall well-being. However, these majestic giants are often plagued by various pests and diseases, threatening their survival. This is where Mauget Imicide steps in as a powerful ally in tree protection and restoration.
