    Q
    Will Sevin spray kill Aphids on cucumbers?
    I have multiple cucumber plants and 1 of them has been taken over by aphids on the backside of the leaves. They do not seem to be bothering the other plants and I have sprayed with Sevin multiple times this spring and summer. Do I make sure to spray well on both sides of leaves and they should go away?
    A

    Sevin Concentrate is not labeled to control aphids on cucumbers.  Instead we would recommend using a systemic product like the Monterey Fruit Tree and Vegetable Systemic Soil Drench for future protection and the Fertilome Triple Action for active aphids.

    Q
    Why can't you use Sevin Concentrate on large trees?
    A

    Sevin Concentrate is not a systemic product and will not get up through the whole tree, which is likely why they do not suggest using it in the larger trees.

    Q
    Will Sevin Concentrate kill bees on contact?
    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 not really  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.

    Q
    Is Sevin concentrate is safe for pigeon peas.
    I spray my pigeon peas about 1 wk ago and their leaves are turning yellow and falling.
    A
    To our knowledge, there is no reason Sevin Concentrate would have turned the leaves yellow, unless another product was also applied to the pigeon peas. Please contact GardenTech 866-945-5033 to help further advise you on their product.

  • Asked by James from Overgaard, Az
    05/24/2018
    Q
    Why does the Sevin Concentrate label say not to spray on large full grown trees?
    I am trying to spray something for bark-beetles. Can I spray the trunks of my large pine trees?
    A

    Sevin Concentrate does state it should not be applied to trees larger than 10 feet tall; this is possibly because doing so would not apply an adequent amount of product to the trunk to be effective in killing insects that contact it.  When treating for bark beetles, it is recommended to spray up to 15 feet high since generally they do not go much higher than that.  You can use a product like Permethrin SFR to do so.  Unfortunately, once the borers have already infested the tree there are not any viable treatment options as they would be protected from sprays. In cases of infestation the general recommendation is simply to protect the surrounding trees with preventative sprays with a product labeled for such a use. Infested trees will need to be trimmed and/or completely removed.
