We dusted 2 days ago & the duster put out a rather heavy coating. We have squash, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes & canteloupe. We want to kill the cucumber beetles, but don't want to harm the plants.
Per the product label for Sevin Dust, you should apply a thin, even film of dust to plant surfaces. Do not reapply more than once a week. If there is still a heavy dust application after several days, then you may rinse the plants to remove excess dust to prevent phytoxicity or other sensitivity. Be sure to follow the label for pre-harvest intervals and maximum number of applications per year.
