    Bonide Systemic Granules Work for me

    By Madsen on 10/24/2011

    Verified Purchase

    While I did see an upsurge in the number of gnats right after applying the granules (presumably due to the thorough watering that's required to dissolve the granules) I haven't seen any larvae in my plants and I had a lot before, so once the adult gnats die, I expect to be rid of the problem.

    Using Bonide Systemic Granules Insect Control

    By Cindy on 11/02/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I utilized the Bonide product two weeks ago for all my houseplants. WE had a house full of gnats from presumably one houseplant that had been given to me and was infested with the gnats! Then, of course, all the plants were soon infested with the gnats! I treated the plants per the product's instructions and have not seen a gnat in over a week! I was also impressed that I received free shipping; I received the product from Georgia in a matter of a few days-we live in Colorado! I will certainly order from your company again if needed. Thanks, Cindy

    Questionable Mealybug Control

    By Mari on 12/04/2011

    Good service from Do My Own Pest Control. However, I applied the granules to houseplants that had evidence of mealybugs...infestation was caught early and wasn't overwhelming. Plants were washed, allowed to dry, sprayed topical insecticide AND applied Bonide Systemic Granules according to label directions. Within a week of the procedure, the little buggers are back on the same plants. Repeating treatment but if it doesn't work, I'd give a "zero" stars rating to Bonide systemic granules. Have used other brands of systemics with success.

Q
Can I use Bonide Systemic Granules on indoor plants to control fungus gnats?

I have several potted houseplants that are heavily infested? Thanks.I've used telestar (bought from you) before and now copper fungicide without much result.

A
Yes. Bonide Systemic Granules can be used indoors to help control the larvae of the Fungus gnat. Be sure to read and follow the product label for best results. It is also helpful to let the soil of the houseplants dry out completely between waterings to help control this pest.

Q
Can I use Bonide Systemic Granules Insect Control diluted in water for cacti and succulents?

I have a lot of plants and was hoping this way would be easier than mixing into the soil of hundreds of plants. I would be soaking with the solution the soil but not the plant body.

A

Bonide Systemic Granules Insect Control is applied dry only and then watered in.  If you want a liquid version you can use the Bonide Systemic Houseplant Insect Control.
