Bonide Systemic Insect Control Wipes out Chili Thrips
By Jerry on July 27, 2011
We recently noticed that our Plumbagos and our Knockout roses were suffering. New growth was dying, blooms were fading, leaves were yellowing and the plants overall health were plummeting. I took samples to the horiculturalist at work and he diagnosed Chili Thrips. As I understand the Chili Thrips recently showed up in Florida and has increasingly begun to attack various plants. Plumbagos and Knockout roses. He recommended liquid orthene which is the active ingredient in the Bonide Systemic Insect Control. I could not find the chemical locally, but readilly found it in this product on the "Do My Own Pest Control" web site. I ordered the product on Wednesday, I received it on Friday and by Tuesday of the following week the plants had rebounded almost miraculously. My experience with the purchase could not have been better.

Excellent, Effective Product
By Walter on July 30, 2012
When buying Bonide Systemic Insect Control, my goal was to eliminate the damage on my Canna Lily leaves caused by Japanese Beetles. I'm delighted to say that the Bonide Control worked simply and perfectly, eliminating the Japanese Beetle problem instantly. My mistake was not buying this product sooner to have eliminated the initial damage they caused on the beautiful Canna Lily palm-like leaves. I will not make this mistake next year since I now have the Bonide Control in stock, and will use it in a timely manner!

September 11, 2011Carol from Fort Pierce, Florida asked:
QIs Bonide Systemic Insect Control organic?
I have butterflies around and also bees. Will they be affected?
ABonide Systemic Insect Control is not an organic or natural product. Bonide Systemic Insect Control contains the active ingredient Acephate. Acephate is a non-selective insecticide that can kill any insect that comes into contact with treated areas. You can limit harm to bees and butterflies by not applying Bonide Systemic Insect Control when these insects are visiting the area to be treated. Many people who are worried about hurting these beneficial insects also choose to use products that will not leave a residual such as insecticidal soap, pyrethrins or neem oil.

May 30, 2011Margaret asked:
QCan I use the same sprayer to apply the Bonide product that iI use for RoundUp?
I have a good sprayer that I use for Round-Up. If I put the spray concentrate for Bag Worms in this sprayer will it hurt the Leland Cyprus trees?
AIt is perfectly fine to use any other product out of the same sprayer that you use RoundUp in, as long as you triple rinse the sprayer and wash it out thoroughly. If you do not wash it out thoroughly, then you could damage or kill the tree with the residual RoundUp left in your sprayer. You should always triple rinse the sprayer if you are changing the product that you are using. Triple rinse means to rinse out the inside of the sprayer 3 times, and also fill it with water and run clean water through the hose for at least 1 minute to make sure that there is no residual left in the hose in addition to the tank.
December 23, 2011Rick from Green Bay, Wi asked:
QHow long will it take Bonide Systemic to work for whiteflies and aphids in my hibiscus trees?
I have whiteflies and aphids in my hibiscus trees, they came indoors for the winter. How long will it take for this product to take affect and how long will this product last, will I need to purchase it again?
ABonide Systemic can take several weeks to translocate through trees. The exact amount of time depends on the species of tree, the size of the tree, how much water the tree is getting and of course the health of the tree. It is recommended that while you are waiting for the systemic product to translocate that you use a different product for an immediate kill of the pest insects such as Horticultural oil, Insecticidal soap or Talstar P. Systemic products last for 3-4 months in most cases.

January 6, 2013Michael from Oak Island, Nc asked:
QWhat is the difference between Bonide's "Systemic Insect Control" and "Annual Tree & Shrub"?
What is the difference between Bonide's "Systemic Insect Control" and "Annual Tree & Shrub"? I am hoping to treat aphids and mealybugs in my southern shrubs and small trees - pittosporum, camellia, indian hawthorne, magnolia, and azalea.
ABonides Systemic Insect Control contains the active ingredient Acephate which does not last as long as the imidacloprid in Annual Tree and Shrub. Both products will do a good job but Annual Tree and Shrub will last longer.
