Worked better than other insecticides
By Mic on August 28, 2012
I spray for cucumber beetles and sucker bugs. Sevin is safest and works the best. Sucker bugs will kill a plant in hours if not treated in time.

How many years can you keep Sevin Concentrate?
ASevin concentrate, like all of our concentrates, can easily last up to 5 years on the shelf as long as you keep the lid on tight and keep the bottle out of direct sunlight. It also helps to shake the bottle every few months if you have not used it in a while.

Wickins from Attica Ny asked:

Dez from Alberta, Canada asked:
QWhat is the mixing ratio of Sevin concentrate for dew worms?
ASevin is not labeled for dew worms so we do not have a way to tell the correct concentration to use for this use. There are no products on the market labeled for dew worms or earthworms as they are seen as beneficial creatures.

Charlene from Traverse City, Mi. 49684 asked:
QI found a bag of Sevin Pwd. that is 29yrs old. Any good?
AMost manufacturers give their products a shelf life of 5 years and they will not back any type of damage that results from using old products. We would recommend just disposing of the old product to be safe.

Cricket from Harwood, Md asked:
QI'm concerned about using Sevin to spray my grape vines to rid them of Japanese beetles
I'm worried about the mist contaminating the surrounding ground for my dogs. I use the grape vines to cover a pergola, I don't eat the grapes, as the birds get the first. What mix ratio should I use?
ATo avoid any issues you should keep your pets out of the area while you are applying Sevin and you can allow them back in the area after the application has dried. As long as you follow the product label instructions there is only a very small amount of pesticide over any given area, only enough to kill insects not enough to harm a mammal. According to the Sevin product label: Mix 3.0 fl. oz. of product per gallon of water and spray upper and lower leaf surfaces and between fruit clusters and on small limbs and trunks to the point of runoff where pest appear. Repeat applications as necessary up to a total of eight times per year for tree fruits or five times per year for small fruits, but not more often than once every seven days.
