Monterey Garden Insect Spray *RESTRICTED*
Spinosad is a mixture of spinosyn A and D metabolites produced during fermentation by Saccharopolyspora spinosa, an actinomycete (fungus-like) bacterium discovered in Caribbean soil. The spinosyns demonstrate excellent insect control with very low toxicity for other organisms. Spinosad is selectively active on insects of the orders Lepidoptera (caterpillar pests) and Diptera (flies) as well as some Coleoptera (beetles) and Hymenoptera (sawflies, wasps, ants, and—alas—bees). Targeted insects include leafminers, corn borers, leafrollers, cabbage loopers, armyworms, Colorado potato beetles, thrips, apple maggots, codling moths, lesser apple worms, and oriental fruit moths. Effective for a wide range of crops.Because it can be toxic to bees, avoid spraying during flowering and pollination. Apply this 0.5% solution of spinosads at 1–2 oz/gal for all crops. Registered for home garden use only. Commercial growers, see Entrust. EPA reg. 62719-314-54705.
