Bonide Systemic Insecticide Granules are convenient, ready to use granules that provide effective, long lasting insect control for up to 8 weeks. Excellent for indoor houseplant use, no odor, no spray, no mess formula. Kills tough houseplant pests like fungus gnats, mealybugs, whiteflies, thrips, and aphids. Systemic action is absorbed through the roots and moves throughout the plant and even protects new growth. For use on flowers, roses, shrubs and containerized plants.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
