Can Cyper WP be used in flower beds?
I have seen numerous mention of it being safe for lawns. Unless I missed it, can it be used in flower beds with out little to no effect on plants and shrubs?
Cyper WP can be used on flower beds. However, you have to be careful because flower blossoms can be senstive to the product. You do not want to spray while bees are actively foraging. You will use the lower rate, which is 1 scoop per gallon of water. It does leave a white residue as well.
Another product that could be used that is labeled to be broadcast across the lawn, sprayed on trees, bushes, flowers, etc. is Bifen IT. This cannot be used on any type of edibles. You will mix 1 fl. oz. per gallon of water.
