Worked for bagworms
By Darren in New York on August 17, 2012
Had some bagworms running wild on my arborvitaes. This spray did the trick on large sized bagworms. Sprayed maybe two weeks ago and it looks like I got them all.

This worked perfectly for getting rid of the Bagworms. I only applied it once and in less than 2 days, they were gone! No more wiggling bags.....empty bags or dead inside. :-) I highly recommend this product if you want to save your expensive plants! Very little is needed, so this will last for years to come.

August 22, 2012Barry from Mt Juliet Tn asked:
QCan this be applied in a fogger?
I have about 230 leyland cypress tress about 30 ft tall. It is very difficult to spray with a hose end sprayer, I have to climb a ladder to get the spray to reach the top of each tree. I am considering a Stihl SR 450 fogger for application.
AAccording to the manufacturer Ferti-lome BORER, BAGWORM, TENT CATERPILLAR & LEAFMINER SPRAY may be applied with trigger sprayer, hand-held, backpack, or hose-end sprayers only.

QWill Fertilome Borer, Bagworm, Tent Caterpillar & Leaf miner Spray 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?

We have not had any feedback on efficacy for pickleworms but you can contact the manufacturer, VPG, directly to see if they have found their product to be effective for pickleworms.

QWhat is there that will kill bore worms?
I use to have a tool that you hooked to a water hose put the bore worm pellets in side of it and push it deep in the ground around the Drip zone, would use so many tablets per size of the tree. I can't find these anymore and was wondering, do you have anything similar to kill bore worms?
