Will Permethrin SFR 36.8 kill wireworms and click beetle adults?

I have found click beetles and the wireworms in my garden around hostas and other plants. Will this product take care of them? How deep in soil does it need to get? Should I also use a granular too? If yes, which one would be best? Thanks


Permethrin SFR 36.8%  will not treat for Click beetles/Wire worms. It is hard to find a treatment that is labeled for these pests. First, be sure to remove or clean up any piles of debris in the yard or patio/deck. Research shows that cutworm treatments have proven effective on Click beetles.We would recommend Cyonara RTS.  It comes in a convenient bottle that hooks up to your hose and is labeled to apply in your garden.  It will not only take care of cutworms, but many other pests that might be in your garden.
