liquid 7 insecticide

Postby skyhightree1 » Tue May 21, 2013 9:58 am

Does anyone use this? I bought some and have never used it does it work well? I have alot of potatoe bugs eating the vines and need to kill them just wanted yalls opinion on it. I normally use seven dust on my stuff but its a pain in the butt and with all the rain we are getting figured the spray may last lil longer.

Not exactly but I'd say they'd be laying on the ground in a few hours and probably lose their appetite earlier than that. It works about the same as sevin dust.

skyhightree1, I in the past have used 7 on potatoes and worked well, I used Tempo last year on potatoes because we had a lot of hoppers and blister beetles and potatoe bugs, We were so brown and dry last year that the only thing green was my garden, anyway it killed all the bugs very fast and lasted for about 2 weeks, with no rain, the only thing that we needed to spray again for was the dang hoppers. Good luck 101

That should do the trick. I have also had good luck with a product called Bayer Plus and seems to work well for all my garden.
