It is simple to use Garden Tech Sevin in your garden with these step by step instructions:

1.        Wearing household latex or rubber gloves, use the ready-to-use shaker container to apply product.
2.        Dust lightly to cover leaf surfaces with a thin, even film of dust.
3.        Start applying at the furthest corner of the treatment area and work backward. Apply when air is calm to avoid drift and contact with eyes or skin.
4.        Consult package label for detailed application considerations and rate recommendations.

·        This product has a dual mode-of-action, working on contact and by ingestion. Therefore, problem pests are controlled either by coming into contact with dust or by feeding on the dust.
·        Product should be used at the first sign of insect infestation, preferably before extensive damage and feeding has taken place.
·        Depending on the edible, the spray can be applied throughout the growing season, including the day before harvest.
·        For plants above chest height, consider using a liquid formulation, such as concentrate, hose-accessible (ready-to-spray) and ready-to-use.
