Will Garden Tech Sevin Ready to Spray Bug Killer destroy the open flowers and any new buds?
My flowers are covered in aphids which means they are on the petals. Can I spray the whole plant to include open flowers and buds without losing them completely?
There are no restrictions on the product label that would prohibit you from spraying on the flowers themselves other than waiting at least 7 days between applications and not exceeding the maximum six applications per year for ornamental shrubs. If the plants are under extreme stress, then we would recommend spot treating a small area before broadcasting over many plants. You will also want to limit applications to open flowers so as not to contact pollinating bees.
