Jody from Hockessin De, writes,

Is it safe to apply Sevin Into soil? Please explain!

After reading the labels, I noticed that soil application mentioned. I am making my own potting soil. I am using recycled soil. I wish to apply seven into the wheelbarrow full of soil, and mix to help kill the different listed bugs I have had an issue with. I am using established plants, not seeds. I have used this product religiously for about 6 years now. But, is it okay to just add it to the soil? Will it kill all manner of pests just like if sprayed to the plant? Will it only kill soil bound insects, and eggs?


According to the manufacturer, Sevin Dust should not be applied directly to soil that you are making. It will dissolve within the soil. It should only be used around established plants and the soil around those.
