I have used Arbico-Organics for many years. Specifically The Bug Lady with a very nice real lady (Sheri) behind the image introduced me to the use of Nematodes and Milky Spore powder to control numerous grubs in my Giant Pumpkin Patch. It worked! Then there were the fungus knats. Sheri suggested Thuricide a BT product which worked very well.
I could go on and on because I use a dozen or more of their products. Some could be purchased elsewhere. I however wish to support a serious organic principled product company.
Dr. Buglady is special. Consult when you have a real problem. Dr.Buglady (Sheri) will get right into your problem and needs.
This company is one of the finest I have come to know dealing seriously and nearly 100% in organic products.
I phoned in an order for 10 rolls of bird scare tape to string in our blueberry patch. The lady who took my order was very nice and helpful. The box came much faster than expected, and their price was the best I could find for this item. I'll order from ARBICO again.
I ordered the Maxicrop liquid and powdered seaweed formula after seeing it praised by Paul James. The box arrived quickly but when opened, the liquid (which was in a separate bag) bottle was damaged and about 1/3 leaked out into the bag.
Contacted Kim in customer service who promptly shipped me a replacement bottle at no cost. She did aske if the original box appeared to be damaged (which it did not) but did not give me any problems.
If the produce performs as well as their customer service dept I will be ordering from them again!
I was checking on my order and then asked about blister beetles and especially click beetles which affect my potato crop. I was connected with Arbico's head entomologist and received very helpful information I can now use to formulate a plan for treatment.

I purchased red worms for my pet duck. The people were very polite. A cool pack box arrived with the worms in a canvas type bag with an excellant medium. There was many more worms than I had ordered. My duck and I are very pleased with this company.
I called ARBICO Organics in the hopes to find a solution to my fly problem (I have horses) and my problem with grubs in my lawn (which used to be beautiful).
Not only did ARBICO solve my fly problem with their fly parasites, but they also have great trap for the adult flies from my neighbors!!! It is a solar trap and I highly recommend it to anyone who has flies! They were very nice on the phone and they knew exactly what I needed....
I will have to say that I tried to call Spalding Labs once before, but they were not as nice and they told me all sorts of excuses as to why they couldn't offer me as many parasites as ARBICO. And, they don't even offer a trap.
For my grubs, I ordered the beneficial nemotodes and they worked great!!! I am so pleased, I can't recommend Arbico enough! Now, my lawn is green and beautiful, and no grubs this season!
