What is Sevin Dust?
Sevin insecticide dust (made by Garden Tech) is a popular name-brand pesticide containing carbaryl, a pest control product that has been used by gardners for years to control insects in gardens, ornamentals and on crops and edible vegetables. Sevin dust is considered a broad-spectrum insecticide, meaning that it will kill the majority of insects that come into contact with it. This includes insects that infest vegetable plants as well as some pollinating and flying insects.
Sevin dust bug killer is available in a dust form as well as a liquid concentrate. Most gardners prefer Sevin Dust as it is easier to apply in the dust form and comes in a covenient 1 lb. shaker container. Be careful when applying Sevin on flowering plants or flowers that attract pollinating insects as Sevin will kill those beneficial insects if they should come in contact with the chemical. Sevin has low toxicity to mammals when used as directed.
I work with wolves, and we receintly moved the entire pack to a new facility. It was over run with Fire ants and biting our poor wolves feet and bodys. I put the powder on the opening of the ant hill, and no more ants! The other products just made them move their hole about a foot away, but I'm not seeing any new holes.
Good Morning. I read on one of the other questions that I should wait 48 hours after application before watering. The problem with this is I live in Louisiana and my plants are all in pots it just gets entirely to hot to wait 48 hours. It has been so hot here I have actually had to water them 2- 3 times a day this week. Would it be okay if I water them with a slow running hose directly in the dirt with out getting the leaves wet?
As long as the Sevin Dust 5% does not get wet then watering the soil of the plants should be fine. Once the dust gets wet it is not longer effective.
How long after applying Sevin dust can I eat my vegetables; tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers etc?
Per the Sevin Dust Product Label: Pre harvest interval after applying sevin dust to Cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers is 3 days. See the product label for the full list of edibles and pre harvest intervals for each.
