    Very good results

    By Dawn on 08/21/2018

    I have many houseplants & just when I think everything is doing well I find some kind of bug, usually in the soil. I tried this on a whim instead of my normal practices, and (actually the reason I tried it is because I like D.M.O. company so well!) It works for me so far & I used it also as a preventive in plants that had no bugs. The reason I gave it 4 stars, is it is expensive for the amount you need to use.

    Didn't Work

    By Carlie on 12/28/2018

    I bought this thinking it would solve the problem I was having with my indoor plants, but it was only a quick fix. It said to use (I believe if I recall correctly) every 8 wks. I had the tiny knats back after 2 weeks. It was not as I was hoping for by any means.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Can Bonide Systemic Houseplant Insect Control be put in a self-watering pot's water?

I water my African Violet from bottom only, in a self-watering pot, Can I put the indicated amount of granules in the water of this self watering pot? African Violets do not like to have water around they leaves or stems, so putting it on the soil and watering it in is out, and I already purchased the product.

A

Bonide Systemic Houseplant Insect Control would not be placed in water, it must be applied as directed on the label.  Mix the granules thoroughly into the top layer of the soil making sure not to damage the upper roots. Water in thoroughly.  Mixing with water first would break the product down, making it ineffective.  The watering in is just to get it down to the roots in the soil.
