Bonide Systemic Insect Control Wipes out Chili Thrips
By Jerry in Ocala, FL on 07/27/2011
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 in Stow, Ohio on 07/30/2012
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!

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.

QIs Bonide Systemic Insect Control safe to use around pets?
The restrictions on the label states "Do not apply this product in a way that will contact people or plants." Common sense is I would not spray directly on person or pet. But it is the product safe after it drys on the soil and leaves? Our cat loves to sleep under the rose brushes. Can't be too careful.
ABonide Systemic Insect Control is pet and people safe once dry. Pets and people should be out of the area until it is dry.

QCan I use Bonide Systemic control on my vegetable garden? Will it be safe to consume the harvested vegetables?
ABonide Systemic Insect Control is not labeled for use on edible plants and any edible plants treated with the product should be discarded. We do carry a full line of products you can use on edible plants and you can see them by clicking on this link: Edible Garden Products. Be sure to click on the "product label" link located in the product description box of each product to see what plants can be treated by each product.
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.

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.
QIs Bonide Systemic Insect Control safe for indoor plants?

QGiant Bark Aphids on wax myrtle tree.
My local nursery sold me the systemic Insect Control to use as a DRENCH for my wax myrtle because I don't want to harm my lizards and geckos that hang out in the tree by spraying anything. I don't see instructions to use as a drench anywhere in package. Is it an option to use as a drench and if so, how much for a 26" trunk? Thanks.
AFor aphid control you would mix 2 Tbs (1 fl oz) of Bonide Systemic Insect Control per gallon of water and spray entire plant covering both sides of foliage thorougly. Bonide Systemic Insect Control is not meant to be used as a soil drench. Instead, it is a foliar absorbed systemic insecticide.

QIs Bonide Systemic Insect Control effective on lace bugs ?
ABonide Systemic Insect Control will treat for lace bugs.
04/12/2015 William from Brandon, Ms
QWhat is the best spraying strategy to control Lace Bugs on azaleas? I plan to use a hose end sprayer.
I must have 40-50 azaleas. Some are 4-5 feet tall. Approx 25 were planted in 2014, Was planning to use drench with Imidacloprid but discovered it would be cost prohibitive.
ABonide Systemic Insect Control is a very good product for lacebugs. You will use 1 1/2 fl. oz. per gallon of water. You will spray the entire plant, covering both sides of the foliage thoroughly.

QI have bores at the base of my peach tree, can I spray captain jacks dead bug direct on the base of the tree,
and when can I do this. bob
AUnfortunately, Captain Jack's Dead Bug Brew Concentrate is not labeled for use on Peach trees. We would highly recommend the Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor Broad Use Insecticide with 10% Permethrin Insecticide. Apply when Insects appear. Do not apply within 7 days of Harvest. Do not make more than 8 applications per Season.
