Captain Jack's Deadbug Brew Ready-To-Use is formulated with Spinosad which is derived from a soil dwelling bacterium that came from an abandoned and desolated rum distillery on a Carribean Island. This formula is used to control insect pests on ornamental and edible crops for up to four weeks. It can kill target pest insects through feeding on treated foliage, making it less impactful on non-target insects including beneficial.
Use on fruits, vegetables, berries, citrus, grapes, nuts and ornamentals
Kills: thrips, spider mites, leaf feeding beetles, sawfly larvae and other listed insects
For control of foliage feeding worms (caterpillars), thrips and other lised pests on roses, flowers and other outdoor ornamentals
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
For residential use in home gardens, lawns and ornamentals. Not for use on plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.
This insecticide is intended for control of worms (caterpillars) and other listed insects. This does not significantly impact predatory beneficial insects, predatory mites, and spiders while controlling target pests. Susceptible insect pests may be observed on plants up to several hours after treatment, but will have ceased active feeding before being killed. Spinosad is classified as an organic substance by the USDA National Organic Standards Board.
Captain Jack’s DEADBUG Brew contains Spinosad “spin-OH-sid”. Spinosad is derived from a naturally occurring soil dwelling bacterium that was collected from an abandoned rum distillery on a Caribbean island in 1982. This unique bacterium was defined as a new species when it was discovered and it has never been found in nature anywhere else in the world. Since being discovered, Spinosad has become a pesticide used by agriculture world-wide in the production of organic produce. Today, Spinosad is available to the homeowner in Captain Jack’s DEADBUG Brew Spinosad Ready-to-Use.
