Mallet (Imidacloprid) is a systemic and foliar preventative pesticide that is able to be applied to turf and ornamental plants. Mallet works by being taken up by the plant and so effectively controls insects that cause injury.
Mallet is best used preventatively as it takes time to be absorbed by the plant. Ideally, you would use Mallet in combination with a contact pesticide that will knock down insects faster, and then the Mallet will prevent future attacks.
