    Q
    Will Garden Tech Sevin Ready to Spray Bug Killer destroy the open flowers and any new buds?
    My flowers are covered in aphids which means they are on the petals. Can I spray the whole plant to include open flowers and buds without losing them completely?
    A
    There are no restrictions on the product label that would prohibit you from spraying on the flowers themselves other than waiting at least 7 days between applications and not exceeding the maximum six applications per year for ornamental shrubs. If the plants are under extreme stress, then we would recommend spot treating a small area before broadcasting over many plants. You will also want to limit applications to open flowers so as not to contact pollinating bees.

    Q
    Is Sevin Ready to Spray Bug Killer the right choice to kill the flea outbreak in my yard?
    We just mowed the grass in anticipation of applying tomorrow.
    A

    Sevin Ready to Spray Bug Killer is not really labelled to control fleas.  For a flea infestation outdoors, we recommend our Outdoor Flea and Tick Kit, which contains Temprid SC and Archer IGR.  Temprid SC is a versatile insecticide concentrate with two active ingredients, providing both a quick initial kill and long-term residual control of adult fleas and ticks. Archer IGR prohibits the development of fleas, effectively interrupting their breeding cycle.

    Q
    How do you refill sevin ready to spray bottle with refill concentrate?

    This bottle of Sevin is not designed to be refilled as it is a different formulation than the concentrate form that they also make. The dial on the top of this bottle is designed to put out the correct amount of product for the ready to spray formulation. However, we do carry hose end sprayers that you can use the concentrate form of sevin as well as most other concentrated products we carry in for application.

  • Asked by Lucy from Hialeah, Florida
    04/14/2014
    Q
    Is Garden Tech Sevin Ready to Spray Bug Killer good for white flies?
    A
    Garden Tech Sevin Ready to Spray Bug Killer will kill white fly that come in contact with the treated area. We also recommend using a systemic like Adonis 2F. Adonis would be the product of choice for soil drench applications for whitefly infestations. It can take a few weeks for the Adonis to translocate through tall trees and you will most likely continue to see whiteflies in that time period. While you are waiting on the imidacloprid to translocate you should treat the foliage with a product such as Garden Tech Sevin Ready to Spray Bug Killer
