Ecoplugs are a novel formulation of crystalline glyphosate encapsulated in a plastic plug. Because of their design, they present practically no risk of non target drift or operator contamination, and can be used in all weathers at any time of year. These are a great alternative for people with pets and children who could be at risk from use of a spray pesticide.

A rule of thumb is to calculate the tree diameter divided by 1,5. For example: Diameter 11” divided by 1.5 = 7. Apply 7 plugs evenly spaced.
