    Q
    Since this is Spinosad based, is it organic? If not, what's in it that keeps if from being organic?
    It is safe for vegetables, correct?
    A

    Spinosad wil not persist in the environment. Sunlight and soil microbes break it down into carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen. It is classified as an organic substance by the USDA National Organic Standards Board that is safe to be used on vegetables as labeled. Conserve SC itself is not OMRI or NOP approved. We also sell Natural Guard Spinosad Landscape and Garden RTS, which is certified organic.

    Q
    How do you use Conserve SC on fire ant mounds? How quickly does it work on fire ant mounds?
    A

    Conserve SC can be applied as a mound drench to treat fire ants. Per the product label:

    Dilute Conserce SC at a rate of 0.1 oz. per gallon of water.

    "Apply diluted Conserve SC to individual fire ant mounds as a drench application. Use 1 to 2 gallons per mound depending upon the mound size. For mounds less than 8 inches in diameter, use 1 gallon of dilution per mound. Use a higher volume, up to 2 gallons, on mounds 8 inches or larger in diameter. Apply approximately 10% of the dilution volume around the perimeter of the mound out to about 12 inches and pour the remaining volume directly on the mound. Do not disturb mounds prior to application. If possible, apply following a recent rainfall. For best results, apply in cool weather, 65 to 85 degrees F, or in early morning or late evening hours. Treat new mounds as they appear. Do not use pressurized sprays as they may disturb the ants and cause migration, reducing control."

     

    Conserve SC will start working by contact and ingestion within minutes of application, but more results will be evident within 1-3 days. Conserve SC will continue to work for up to 14 days after application.

    Q
    Will Conserve SC control spotted wing drosophila in blueberries? It appears to be half the concentration of
    Entrust SC, but I didn't see SWD on the label. I have a small farm and would nevet get through a bottle of Entrust before it went bad, It's also very expensive.
    A
    Conserve SC is labeled for fruit flies, which is what spotted wing drosophila are in the same family as. It does not kill them but surpresses them.

    Q
    Can Conserve SC be used to kill Erinose mites on Lychee Trees?
    A

    Conserve SC is not labeled to treat for the lychee erinose mite. If you believe to have the lychee erinose mite on your trees, it is recommended that you notify your local extension office to notify them and receive treatment recommendations shown to be effective in your region.

    Q
    Is Conserve SC effective for Erinose mites on Lichee trees?
    A
    Conserve SC is labeled as safe to use on lychee, however, it is not labeled specifically for Erinose mites. There is a very informative article by the University of Florida Extension that states using a product with the active ingredient azadirachtin may work which is the active in AzaGuard Insecticide Nematicide, but mainly pruning would help to get rid of the infestation. If you would like further information on AzaGuard Insecicide Nematicide, we would recommend reaching out to the manufacturer (BioSafe Systems) at 888-273-3088.
