    Q
    Will liquid Sevin kill European Hornets on lilac bush?
    I have an infestation of European Hornets on my lilac bush and they are girding the branches and killing the bush. If I spray liquid Sevin at their chew sites, will it kill them? Is Sevin systemic, i.e. will they take it back to their nest and kill other hornets?
    A

    Sevin Concentrate is not labeled for hornets or other stinging insects so would not be recommended.  It is not systemic and would not be carried back to any nest, either.  A better option would be to use a product like Bifen IT on the bushes to help control those that contact a treated area.  We also have a great guide on treating waps and hornets here.

    Q
    I have an older bottle Sevin Concentrate that has turned brownish in color. Is it old?
    A

    It is possible that the bottle of Sevin Concentrate you have could be old.  If you shake the bottle and the contents do not mix, this is a good indication that you have old product.  If the product was allowed to freeze or if is over 5 years old, we recommend that you purchase fresh product.

  • Asked by Dan from Conway, Sc

    Q
    Will Sevin eliminate or control scaling insect on magnolia trees?
    A

    Sevin Concentrate is not labeled to be used on trees with a height of 10 feet or more. Adonis 2F Insecticide/Termiticide which conains Imidacloprid would be a better product to use.  You would use .1 to .2 oz per inch of trunk diameter.  It can take up to 8 weeks for the product to completely translocate through the tree so timing is key.  Application timing of systemics is very important and it varies from region to region. We recommend you contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff as he or she will be able to give you the most accurate information in regards to application timing.

    For foliar sprays now Talstar P would be a good product to use.
