These yucky wormy things were destroying my oleanders. One dusting and Voila! Caterpillars are gone and plants/blooms look wonderful. Product was excellent. Would definitely recommend for this problem.

I've used Dipel for several years to control tomato and other worms - it's a very effective product but sometimes hard to find locally. Even with shipping your prices are competetive and I don't have to drive around town looking!

I used this at the start of a horworm infestation and it didn't seem to phase them, so I went back to my old standby.

QAfter applying Fertilome Dipel Dust, how long do you have to wait until harvesting vegetables?
ADipel dust is a biological dust meaning there are no insecticides present. Therefore, there is no certain amount of time that you have to wait before harvesting after treatment. Anything that you harvest should be washed thoroughly and when you do this, you will wash away any traces of the product.

QCan Dipel be mixed with water and sprayed from a hose end sprayer?
ADipel Dust is to only be used as a dry dust. Mixing it with water will likely decrease the effectiveness of the product, much like putting it down as a dust just before a rain will wash it away. Please refer to the product label on how much to use in the areas to be treated.

QDoes Fertilome Dipel Dust have a shaker lid?
I would like to know if you can apply the dipel dust directly from the container it comes in with a shaker lid, or if it needs to be transferred to a duster container.
A Yes, Fertilome Dipel Dust does have a shaker lid. You can use it directly from the container. It is recommended that you use a duster, though, so you can get into areas you may not be able to get into when it is just be applied from the container.
