    These yucky wormy things were destroying my oleanders. One dusting and Voila! Caterpillars are gone and plants/blooms look wonderful. Product was excellent. Would definitely recommend for this problem.

    Dipel Dust

    By Anonymous on 06/03/2013

    I've used Dipel for several years to control tomato and other worms - it's a very effective product but sometimes hard to find locally. Even with shipping your prices are competetive and I don't have to drive around town looking!

    Too Slow For Me

    By Rodney on 05/03/2012

    I used this at the start of a horworm infestation and it didn't seem to phase them, so I went back to my old standby.

    Best for cole crops

    By Linda on 09/22/2018

    Dipel dust was recommended for my fall plants. I had cabbage, broccoli and brussel sprouts, and the plants stayed free of the cabbage loopers and worms that usually devour these plants. Great product
