  • 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.

    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.

  • Asked by Deb from Kissimmee, Fl
    05/08/2018
    Q
    Will Sevin Concentrate kill hookworms in the soil?
    A

    Unfortunately the Sevin Concentrate is not labeled for hookworms. There is not a product on the market that is labeled or recommended for hookworms. While some insecticides that are labeled for turf or lawn infesting insect may work, there has not been enough research to add hookworms to the product labels. We recommend thatif you have pets, they be moved out of the contaminated area for at least 6 weeks (during warm spring/summer months, longer during cool winter/fall months) and all feces be removed. Keeping the animals out of the contaminated area for at least 6 weeks should help control the infestation pattern. It is also important to remove feces from the new latrine area to avoid another infestation. Another option is to remove the contaminated soil and replace if you cannot keep out for 1 year.
