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.

Howard from Jasper,alabama asked:
QHow often should I dust my veg garden with Sevin Dust?
Also, should I stop dusting once the plants bloom?
A The rate at which you apply and how often will depend on what pest you are treating for and in what area or crop. The label suggests after flowers bloom you may not want to dust them as the sevin dust could kill the beneficial insects that would be coming around to pollinate. You can either refer to the Sevin Dust Product Label on our site, or give us more information to get the exact answer you are looking for. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
