Just learned this. Guess I assumed it killed everything including children and pets. I kinda hate using Systemic anyways but I do have a few plants with Scale. Rubbing alcohol just isn't enough against Scale it seems. I have been using Safer Insect Soap for Spider Mites and it does a good job. Need a little more control though. Just ordered some Azamax. Sounds good. I have been using rubbing alcohol for Mealybugs. Perhaps Azamax will help with all of these critters. I will let you know after I use it for awhile. Anyone here with any experience?
Ok, good. My new fav. spray will be Azamax which I just got today. If it is 1/2 as good as it sounds on paper, it will be wonderful. "Can be applied at day of harvest." Every insect I ever heard of is listed in the control section.
I have had some problems with spider mites in my grape, raspberry and gooseberry plants. I don't like using chemical spays even though I tried it on the gooseberry bushes with no success. When the problem spread to my other berry bushes I used high pressure spray from my garden hose and carefully sprayed each of the rows of bushes last season and that took care of the problems. I repeated the process several times early in the spring and in the fall I did some serious trimming and thinning as well.
