I've used this insectacide before and it works great on citrus. The price is right if you buy a large amount.

Excellent organic control
By Linda on September 24, 2012
I was having a recurrent yearly problem with whitefly, spider mites and leaf miners in my Savannah GA autumn vegetable garden. The eggplant, tomatoes and bell peppers were most affected. Capt Jack's Deadbug Brew Concentrate, containing Spinosad is an excellent control. I found that adding 4 tbsp Capt Jack's and 2 cups of milk to a gallon jug, filling it with water then spraying the entire plant with this mixture controlled the pests AND the fungal/mildew problems that are normal in humid deep south gardens. Happy Harvesting!

QWill Captain Jacks Deadbug Brew Concentrate control pickleworms?
Our winter wasn't very strong and the heat has set in early. I have a bad infestation of pickleworms in my cucumber plants! My local agricultural division of the local college, University of Florida recommended a farm pesticide called Entrust, which has the same active ingredient Spinosad, and said it is OMRI listed, and I am trying to grow as organically as possible. Is this safe to use and popularly effective?
ACaptain Jacks Deadbug Brew Concentrate is not labeled for pickleworms specifically but it is labeled for worms in general on cucumbers. This is a fairly new product for us so we do not have any feedback on efficacy for pickleworms but you can contact the manufacturer, Bonide, directly to see if they have found their product to be effective for pickleworms. You can reach Bonide at 800-424-9300.

AYes, you can use Captain Jacks Deadbug Brew on your Cilantro. Use the same mixing instructions listed for leafy vegetables and herbs on the product label.

QI am looking for a general treatment for spiders and other normal household bugs that I can spray once a month.
I just purchased a new home and do not want to have hire a pest control company to spray monthly. I live in Arizona where we have a tendency for scorpions, spiders, black widows, ants, etc. What is a good general chemical that I could spray around the outside of the house once a month that would help to prevent pests from entering into the house? I am not sure what the pros use when they spray.
ADemon WP would be a great choice for all of the pests you mentioned and is one of the top choices for professionals when those hard to kill insects are the target. The only downside to Demon WP is that it could potentially leave a white powdery residue on dark surfaces. If this is a concern for you, another top contender is Cy-Kick CS. You should not solely rely on pesticides to keep insects at bay. You should also do your part by making your property less favorable to spiders and scorpions.
