    Treating Bagworms

    By on 07/29/2013

    I was beside myself with 100s of bagworms all over my evergreen trees and shrubs, killing them. I used ecosmart insect killer, killed many but still had a bunch left. I tried Sevin and no more bagworms! Love this product! It works and not too expensive!!

    Worked better than other insecticides

    By Mic on 08/28/2012

    I spray for cucumber beetles and sucker bugs. Sevin is safest and works the best. Sucker bugs will kill a plant in hours if not treated in time.
