    Q
    Ant infestation in oak trees
    We have several large oak trees in our yard that are severely infested with small black ants. The ants apparently live/nest in the trees but have recently started moving around our yard a lot and are everywhere. Now they are even in our house, specifically in our attic. No other products have been successful in exterminating them so my mom suggested we use Sevin products. The product states it is specifically for outdoor use so is it safe to spray in the attic? We also have a large population of squirrels that we feed so which of your products would be safe to use that would not be harmful to our squirrel population?
    A
    Sevin Concentrate is labeled to be used outdoors only. For ants indoors, we would recommend using something like Phantom Aerosol. This can be sprayed around the baseboards, cracks and crevices, void treatment where pests harbor, nest, trail, run, and/or breed or hide. Treat into voids or to surfaces beneath cabinets, furniture, spaces between equipment, expansion joints, surfaces behind sinks, floor drains (to sewers), lockers, and water pipes.

    Q
    Why can't we use Sevin on our lawn?
    We have ticks.
    A

    Even though Sevin Insecticide Granules and Sevin Concentrate have the same active ingredients, they have different formulations. Because they have different formulations, they have separate Product Labels that have separate use instructions. For more detailed information as to why the Sevin Insecticide Granules can be used on lawns, where the Sevin Concentrate is limited to vegetables, fruit, and ornamentals please contact the manufacture, GardenTech at 866-945-5033.

    Q
    Can you use Sevin dust or spray on a Young Red Bud Trees?
    Has small holes in leaves.
    A

    Sevin Concentrate can be used on ornamental trees such as red buds. If the tree is flowering, then we do not recommend applying to trees or other plants while in bloom. Or, you would want to test a small area for possible sensitivity before treating a whole tree or many trees in an area. You would use 4 oz per gallon of water and spray up to the point of runoff making sure to cover all sides of leaves and trunk. Do not apply more than once per seven days. Please refer to the product label for complete application instructions.

    Q
    Does Sevin Concentrate kill lizards?
    A

    No, Sevin Concentrate is not labeled to kill lizards. We do know of any products that are made to harm lizards. We would recommend using a general insecticide, such as Suspend SC. This will kill their food source and help with keeping the lizards out of the treated area. Glue boards can also be used to catch them as well.

    Q
    Can Sevin Concentrate be used for Japanese beetles on basil?
    Basil is not listed on the PHI literature. I sprayed the Sevin ready to use this morning. Temps are in low 90's. Just had a very severe downpour. How soon should I spray again. And how long to wait before eating the basil?
    A

    Unfortunately Sevin Concentrate is not labeled to be used on basil.  Any basil sprayed with it should be discarded and not eaten.  Ferti-lome Triple Action would be a better option, applied in early morning before temperatures get too hot.
