Will Merit 75 kill squash bug adults?
Merit 75 is not actually labeled for squash bugs but squash bugs that try to feed off of treated plants would surely be effected. Merit 75 is most likely not labeled for squash bugs because it cannot be used on most edible plants which are the ones that will most likely be infested by this pest. We do carry Bayer Advanced Fruit, Citrus and Vegetable Insect Control and while it does share the same active ingredient as Merit 75 the formulation is a bit different which is what allows you to use it on edible plants.
