    Bonide Systemic Insect Control Wipes out Chili Thrips

    By Jerry on 07/27/2011

    Verified Purchase

    We recently noticed that our Plumbagos and our Knockout roses were suffering. New growth was dying, blooms were fading, leaves were yellowing and the plants overall health were plummeting. I took samples to the horiculturalist at work and he diagnosed Chili Thrips. As I understand the Chili Thrips recently showed up in Florida and has increasingly begun to attack various plants. Plumbagos and Knockout roses. He recommended liquid orthene which is the active ingredient in the Bonide Systemic Insect Control. I could not find the chemical locally, but readilly found it in this product on the "Do My Own Pest Control" web site. I ordered the product on Wednesday, I received it on Friday and by Tuesday of the following week the plants had rebounded almost miraculously. My experience with the purchase could not have been better.

    Excellent, Effective Product

    By Walter on 07/30/2012

    Verified Purchase

    When buying Bonide Systemic Insect Control, my goal was to eliminate the damage on my Canna Lily leaves caused by Japanese Beetles. I'm delighted to say that the Bonide Control worked simply and perfectly, eliminating the Japanese Beetle problem instantly. My mistake was not buying this product sooner to have eliminated the initial damage they caused on the beautiful Canna Lily palm-like leaves. I will not make this mistake next year since I now have the Bonide Control in stock, and will use it in a timely manner!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Is Bonide Systemic Insect Control safe to use around pets?

The restrictions on the label states "Do not apply this product in a way that will contact people or plants." Common sense is I would not spray directly on person or pet. But it is the product safe after it drys on the soil and leaves? Our cat loves to sleep under the rose brushes. Can't be too careful.

A
Bonide Systemic Insect Control is pet and people safe once dry.  Pets and people should be out of the area until it is dry.

Q
Is Bonide Systemic Insect Control organic?

I have butterflies around and also bees. Will they be affected?

A
Bonide Systemic Insect Control is not an organic or natural product. Bonide Systemic Insect Control contains the active ingredient Acephate. Acephate is a non-selective insecticide that can kill any insect that comes into contact with treated areas. You can limit harm to bees and butterflies by not applying Bonide Systemic Insect Control when these insects are visiting the area to be treated. Many people who are worried about hurting these beneficial insects also choose to use products that will not leave a residual such as insecticidal soap, pyrethrins or neem oil.
