What is Sevin Dust?
Sevin insecticide dust (made by Garden Tech) is a popular name-brand pesticide containing carbaryl, a pest control product that has been used by gardners for years to control insects in gardens, ornamentals and on crops and edible vegetables. Sevin dust is considered a broad-spectrum insecticide, meaning that it will kill the majority of insects that come into contact with it. This includes insects that infest vegetable plants as well as some pollinating and flying insects.
Sevin dust bug killer is available in a dust form as well as a liquid concentrate. Most gardners prefer Sevin Dust as it is easier to apply in the dust form and comes in a covenient 1 lb. shaker container. Be careful when applying Sevin on flowering plants or flowers that attract pollinating insects as Sevin will kill those beneficial insects if they should come in contact with the chemical. Sevin has low toxicity to mammals when used as directed.

I have a severe case of bedbugs and was told to spray all infected areas with sevin mixed with water since my infestation is so severe. Will it work?

QCan this product used to kill bees and prevent them from entering the area where their hive is? We have bees
entering an outdoor outlet on our deck.
ASevin is not labeled for bees. We would recommend using Delta dust or Tempo dust for eliminating bees that have been entering the outlet. Dusts do not offer an immediate knockdown but instead kill over a couple of days. Dusts will keep killing for several months after they have been applied to covered areas.
