    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
    What should I use to treat gypsy moths on spruce trees?
    A

    A great product to use for gypsy moths and similar caterpillars would be a product containing natural Spinosad, such as Conserve SC. This should be applied during the spring caterpillar feeding stage with thorough coverage on all leaf surfaces. Conserve SC is great if you have a large area or number of trees to treat. If you are only treating a few trees, then you could use Monterey Garden Insect Spray.
