10 STARS IS MORE LIKE IT:)
August 8, 2013
I bought this stuff and have used it religiously on my cole crops and tomatoes for loopers, horn worms, and cut worms twice a week. Last year I sprayed pesticides just to kind of keep up with them and still didn't end up with any brussel sprouts. This year my plants are prettier than the garden books:) And best of all I have good bugs this year; real butterflies, all kinds of good bees and therefore all kinds of produce:) I just cant rave enough. I wish I would of known a few years ago. I'm trying to stay organic and this makes it easy. Thanks!

Did not kill bagworm one. A total waste of over twenty dollars. Applied it several times to my trees, and the infestation was completely unchecked. This review is being blocked by the site too I strongly suspect. I keep submitting the review, and it will not go through. Asking for 75 to 300 words. Totally unnecessary.
