Leroy from Hamlet, Nc writes
Sevin Dust 5% is slow acting so it depends on the stage of life the beetle is in. It could take days or weeks. Be careful when applying Sevin on flowering plants or flowers that attract pollinating insects as Sevin will kill those beneficial insects if they should come in contact with the chemical. Sevin has low toxicity to mammals when used as directed.
