    Q
    Is Criterion 0.5 G Insecticide formula as sticky as Merit granules?
    When I use Granular Merit, it is very goopy and sticky. I'm looking for something to control Thrips in my Sun Patiens and I'm wondering if this gets gooey and sticky too. Thanks!
    A

    The Criterion 0.5 G Insectide granules may be sticky if they are not watered in thoroughly enough. This same thing could happen with any insecticide granules that may be placed on wet turf or not irrigated with enough water. It is best to use at least 0.25 inch of water to thoroughly release and distribute most insecticide granules. Be sure to store extra product in a dry area.
