Answer: Hi Kathleen,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Unfortunately, Yates no longer manufacture nor distribute products under the Confidor brand.
There are some Confidor products still available in the market that can be purchased at limited local independent hardware stores and nurseries. We highly recommend contacting your local store to confirm availability prior to going there to purchase.

We do wish to continue to support your garden needs with an alternative. Please chat to us about your plants symptoms and we will be more than happy to guide you through our range of products to find a suitable solution, that is available for purchase at a wide range of leading and independent hardware stores, nurseries and supermarkets.

To control borer, the best advice that we can provide is to try and cut them out where you can. Arborists can assist you further with advanced trees as they have the products that you may need for your plants.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
