Southern AG Naturalyte - Spinosad insect control
8 oz, OMRI certified
Spinosad is an organic pesticide that works both as a contact & a systemic agent (meaning it kills pests when it hits their body and when they consume it). It kills pests by hyper excitation of the nervous system, and is particularly useful on pests in their larvae stage. Spinosad is a “broad spectrum” which means it will harm all insects that come in contact with it (including ones you may not be trying to kill like ladybugs and bees), so typically its sprayed later in the day/ evening when bees are done foraging. We typically use this pesticide when trying to reduce the population of Thrips or Leaf Hoppers in a garden, maybe because those pests make a ton of larvae and so this effectively breaks their reproductive cycle more than other options.
