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.

Elysia from Baton Rouge asked:
QWatering after application of Sevin Dust 5%?
Good Morning. I read on one of the other questions that I should wait 48 hours after application before watering. The problem with this is I live in Louisiana and my plants are all in pots it just gets entirely to hot to wait 48 hours. It has been so hot here I have actually had to water them 2- 3 times a day this week. Would it be okay if I water them with a slow running hose directly in the dirt with out getting the leaves wet?
A As long as the Sevin Dust 5% does not get wet then watering the soil of the plants should be fine. Once the dust gets wet it is not longer effective.

Jody from Hockessin De, asked:
QIs 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?
A 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.
