imajet_canadian_labelAug. 11, 2014 – Arborjet's IMA-jet formulation is now available in Canada, offering a new tool to protect trees against emerald ash borer and Asian longhorned beetle.

IMA-jet works via trunk injection. The formulation is specially designed to work systematically inside the tree, moving quickly to the target. In the United States, where IMA-jet has been available for almost a decade, independent university researchers have found the formulation to offer effective treatment for many diseases and invasive species, including the Asian longhorned beetle and the emerald ash borer.

"The arrival of IMA-jet in Canada provides property owners and municipalities with effective, affordable and easy to deliver protection against the emerald ash borer," said Philip van Wassenaer, an Ontario-based consulting arborist and president of Urban Forest Innovative Solutions.
