None of the insects shown on the label have any reaction to this product. I sprinkled it on my tomato plants and little green works still ate right thru the powder and into the tomatoes. Big green cutworms crawl all around it-they stay there until I pick them off. This has been applied liberally and by the directions. I might as well have thrown flour on the plants. Total waste of my money and my time.
Will Captain Jack's flower and vegetable garden dust kill the white grubs I have in my garden soil?
This product is not labeled for grubs and would not be the appropriate product to use with how you must treat the soil for grubs. A product that would be safe to treat the soil in your garden would be the Fruit Tree & Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench. Grubs are on this label and your harvest interval after application is going to vary from 7-21 days so be sure to read the product label to see which applies to your vegetables. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
