Central Garden & Pet has just the product to help with that called Sevin Ready-To-Use 5% Dust.
GardenTech® Sevin® Brand Insecticides have been trusted by homeowners and professionals to control a wide variety of outdoor insects, including ants, caterpillars, Japanese beetles, white grubs, Lyme disease-transmitting ticks, and other listed insects.
You see, we have this cute little guy living with us indoors. And we don’t want to be bringing in fleas and ticks indoors with us to infect him.
Sevin® Insecticides are designed for outdoor usage, but they can be applied on household plants so as long as the plants are taken outside for treatment; once dried, the plants can be brought back inside.
Sevin® 5% dust is an insecticide so there are careful instructions you will want to follow. Wear gloves when applying, do it at a time when the winds are calm, and keep people and pets out of the area until the dust has had time to settle. I treated around this wooded area in the backyard. Ticks have been bad this year and I am hoping to not have to pull any off of me or my cute little guy inside.
I also treated the front yard.
And treated this HUGE ant bed in my flower garden.
First I dug up as much of the ant bed as I could.
Then I treated that area and the remaining ants with the Sevin 5% dust. I checked that spot a few days later and all the ants were gone. Yay, now I have my flower bed back.
Do you have some summer pests that you need to take care of? Ants, ticks, beetles, grubs, beetles have their days numbered in your yard when you use Sevin 5% dust.
