Can Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor 10% Permethrin be used on peas, potatos, soybeans, or carrots?
I noticed it only listed certain vegetables, why could it be used on only certain ones. Also what would you recommend for most gardens?
The manufacturer of Hi-Yield Indoor/Outdoor 10% Permethrin Insecticide has tested the product on certain plants and they have listed the plants that the product will not damage and the plants where they know the product will have a beneficial effect. There may not be one product that can treat all of the different plants that you have because the plants are very different as are the types of insects likely to infest each individual species of plant. Fertilome Liquid Carbaryl Spray is listed for carrots and potatoes. Captain Jacks Dead Bug Brew is listed for potatoes and peas. We do not currently have a product that is listed for soy beans. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and see if they have advice on what products will work best on soybeans to protect them against the pests in your region.
