    Great organic pest control

    By Cara on 06/23/2014

    Verified Purchase

    I've used this for 3 years now to control pests in my garden, and it works really well. It's a bit tricky to get the ratio right for a small garden, but it's worth it. It also lasts a long time.

    Good Knock-down of Fruit Fly and Grasshopper

    By Ann on 11/04/2014

    Verified Purchase

    Used PyGanic alternating with Spinosad product; over course of 2 repeated intervals, was able to get knock-down control of an outbreak of fruit fly and grasshopper attacking our raspberry and blackberry. Sprayed at night, but still noticed a die-back of honeybees two days later. Coincidence or cause? Still it's the only "organic" product on the market that works. Previously tried neem and a different fungal control that outright failed to control either the fruit fly or the grasshopper.

    Cheap price, slow shipping

    By Chris on 07/20/2017

    This is the cheapest price I've been able to find for Pyganic. No problems here. Only thing I would say: if you need it right away then get it somewhere else. I bought a smaller bottle at a retail shop to use while I waited for this gallon bottle to arrive.

    PyGanic crop protection

    By K on 04/20/2018

    A more easy way to determine the rate of use would be helpful. Not all customers spray acres of crops. The chemical company should give product amount per gallon for better application, and better use. Ordering and shipment time was very good, and I would recommend without hesitation. I have ordered several times before and have always been pleased.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Will PyGanic Crop Protection EC 1.4 II harm butterflies and bees?
A
PyGanic Crop Protection EC 1.4 II contains pyrethrin as the active ingredient. Pyrethin is a non-selective insecticide which means that any insect that is contacted with the insecticide will be killed. You can help limit this effect by only applying the product when bees and butterflies are not currently visiting the area that needs to be treated.

Q
What is the difference between PyGanic 1.4 II and 5.0 ?

I plan to use it on organic pears and peaches for general insecticide and wonder which product is best suited for this use. Thank you!

A

The main difference between them is the amount of active ingredient they have. PyGanic Crop Protection EC 1.4 II has 1.4 % Pyrethrin vs PyGanic Crop Protection EC 5.0 II which has 5.0%.

Q
can this product be used as a "drench" for severe ant infestation in garden beds

Raised bed have all become giant ant nests as organic weed barriers have decomposed. Ants infest and destroy vegetables and some flowers.

A

PyGanic Crop Protection EC 1.4 II label states for Commercial production of listed crops to kill listed insects dilute 0.9 to 1.8 fl. oz. of Pyganic Crop Protection EC 1.4II per gallon of water. Apply diluted solution with all types of agricultural sprayers, including compressed air sprayers or pump driven sprayers. It is not labeld to be used as a soil drench application and we recommend contacting the manufacturer MGK directly at 800-645-6466 for more information. 

The Outdoor Ant Kit is certified Organic Food Crop Compliant and meets USDA National Organic Program Standards. This would be a good alternative option rather than treating your crops directly.
