  • Asked by Amy from Louisiana

    Q
    I diluted the Sevin concentrate in a sprayer. I made a gallon and didn't use it all, so I left it in there. When I went to use it again today, it had turned brown and smells funny. What happened, and is it still safe to use?
    A
    We do not recommend applying the product if it has changed in color and smells different. All liquid concentrates should be mixed when you are ready to apply within 24 hours. The solutions left in the sprayer tank could damage your equipment and be less effective in treatment.

    Q
    Is it safe (for honey bees) to use Sevin in my area (Central Florida) on my Grapefruit and Lime Trees?
    A
    According to the Sevin Concentrate product label "This product is highly toxic to honeybees and other bees. Do not apply to plants in bloom." Almost all insecticides are toxic to bees as they are non-selective. You can help limit any effect to bees by being careful not to apply the insecticides when bees are actively foraging in the area.
