Rick from Jupiter, Fl writes,

Will Adonis 75WSP also hurt catepillars whom are nesting on the plants when Adonis 75 WSP is applied?

If I apply it to a shrub, will it hurt a catepillar if they feed off the leaves? If I apply Adonis 75 WSP to my hibiscus, will it hurt hummingbirds whom come to feed from the nectar.


Adonis contains imidacloprid which is formulated to kill sucking/chewing insects that feed on the treated plants, so caterpillars that feed on the treated plants will be effected like any other insect. As long as the hummingbirds do not contact the plants while you are applying the product it should not harm them.
