Excellent organic control
By Linda in Savannah GA on 09/24/2012
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!

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

Captain Jacks Deadbug Brew Concentrate
By in Simpsonville, S.C. on 06/05/2013
I purchased the product to try and rid my yard (and house) of the Kudzu bug or, more accurately, the kudzu stink bug. I mixed the concentate and sprayed, right onto the subject, with no results. I didn't find one dead bug after spraying. I was informed later that the bug actually has to ingest the spray for it to be effective. Therefore, I have to rate it 0 stars

By Hugo in Navarre, FL on 07/01/2016

QI work at a butterfly house. Our garden has all sorts of pests ranging from mealy bugs to spider mites. Will C
We have been trying to find organic pesticides that only harm pests. Safer has been our go to option but does not deliver the results that we expect. Captain Jacks was recommended to us by farmers.

QAfter spraying a lemon tree, can I use the grated rind?

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?
