    Excellent organic control

    By Linda on 09/24/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I was having a recurrent yearly problem with whitefly, spider mites and leaf miners in my Savannah GA autumn vegetable garden. The eggplant, tomatoes and bell peppers were most affected. Capt Jack's Deadbug Brew Concentrate, containing Spinosad is an excellent control. I found that adding 4 tbsp Capt Jack's and 2 cups of milk to a gallon jug, filling it with water then spraying the entire plant with this mixture controlled the pests AND the fungal/mildew problems that are normal in humid deep south gardens. Happy Harvesting!

    Great natural product without pesticides for food grade plants. Must do multiple applications every 3 days to kill eggs 3 times over 9 days.

    I've used this insectacide before and it works great on citrus. The price is right if you buy a large amount.
