Which organic pesticide to use to kill red & black beetles. Leaves are showing red spots as well.
I would also like an organic preventative for termites.
Bayer Advanced Natria Multi-Insect Control is an all natural product that can be used to control insects on plants. You would need to spray every 1-2 weeks as needed to control the target pest. We are not aware of any organic or all natural product that actually will work for termite control. We do carry Altriset Termiticide. Altriset is a new reduced-risk non-repellent termiticide that provides excellent control of subterranean termites with minimal impact on the environment. Altriset will eliminate termites in less than three months and will protect your home or business for more than 5 years when used in accordance with the label. Once termites come into contact with Altriset, their ability to feed on wood is halted within hours, resulting in death. The product is slowly passed throughout the colony by touch and contact, causing total colony elimination. Altriset's new class of chemistry provides a high-performing and long-lasting residual termite control product that is also safe to use--In addition to requiring no signal word on the label, DuPont Altriset Termiticide is the first and only liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk under the U.S. EPA reduced-risk program: Altriset requires no special safety equipment, represents no health risk to humans or domestic animals when used as directed, and is safer for the environment.
