    Q
    Does Sevin work with Bayer Advanced All In One Rose and Flower Care?
    I have some bugs attacking my rose bushes -- I want to use both to make sure I get them. But, don't want to cause a chemical imbalance and kill the plants.
    A

    Bayer Advanced All In One Rose and Flower Care treats for many types of pests. Is there a pest that it is not labeled for? We see no reason to apply both. We would not recommend applying both to Roses at the same time.

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

    08/18/2016
    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 Sevin help with something that is eating leaves on my oak seedlings?
    Could be a caterpillar?
    A

    Sevin Concentrate does treat a wide variety of insects on ornamental plants such as oak. You would use 1.5 oz of concentrate per gallon of water on ornamentals. We do recommend inspecting the plants, especially the undersides of the leaves, to help you identify what, exactly is causing the problem. We can make an accurate recommendation for you once you have identified a specific pest.

  • Asked by Jon from Point Roberts, Washington
    08/13/2017
    Q
    Will Sevin Concentrate kill chafer bettle larvae?
    A

    Sevin Concentrate will kill many types of adult beetles, but it will not treat the larvae or grubs. We would recommend using a systemic product earlier in the season before egg hatch for the best results, such as Merit Insecticide Granules. If you currently are seeing grub/larvae damage, then Dylox is the curative treatment that works right away on these pests.
