Garden & Plant Insecticides
For control of aphids, whitefly, beetles, loopers, mites, leaf hoppers, and others! For use in the greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass — up to and including day of harvest.
Applicators: A good dust applicator is essential. The puffer bottle is adequate for indoors and outdoor potted plants. The Spritzer and Dustin-Mizer is best for garden applications, shrubs, etc. A variety of units are available, from small hand held units, to backpacks.
Dry Application: The goal is to get coverage over the entire plant, especially under the leaves. For young plants, as little as two pounds per acre may be adequate. For larger plants, 5 lb/acre is probably sufficient. With extra growth, it might be necessary to increase the amount. An examination of the leaves will tell if the leaf bottom is covered.
Wet Application: For large gardens or acreage some may want to use a wet spray apparatus. The purpose is to get a solution that will flow easily through the nozzle and still put the recommended amount of product per acre. It is essential to get coverage on the underside of the leaf.
