When should I start spraying the Sevin Concentrate on my plants and will it kill my little sprouts?

I know the instructions say to start using it when you see the bugs, but I don't want to see the bugs before I start to kill them. I don't want to give them a chance to kill my pumpkins and gourds. My pumpkins and gourds have sprouted and are just starting to get little vines. If I, of course, though by the instructions on the label for the amount, when is it safe for the plants to start spraying them without damaging them?

Answer:

Sevin Concentrate is an insecticide designed to kill and prevent insects from infesting the vegetation you are treating. You can preventatively spray before you see bugs to get ahead of the game, and the product will not harm the plants you are spraying it on as long as you follow the instructions on the product label.
