Can you obtain imadocloprid in Canada?

I would treat everthing in your greenhouse or potted plant collection, except ferns, orchids and edibles, with imadocloprid as a soil drench, twice, 3 months apart.  Works like a charm and has eliminated mealybugs here. It's what I did prior to a phyto inspection before moving my plant collection to North Carolina and continue the regime here yearly.
