Using Spinosad to organically control insects & pests

After our detailed article and video about How to use Neem Oil in the garden to organically control insects and pests, we now turn our attention towards Spinosad.

Spinosad is another broad range insecticide which helps control a lot of pests like loopers (caterpillars), whiteflies, aphids, leafminers and much more. Because of the broad range action, use Spinosad only when the harmful insects are active (dusk thru night) and avoid spraying in day light.

Why Spinosad?
  • Its organic
  • Its completely safe - you can harvest and consume produce right away, no waiting
  • Great for the environment

Spinosad is an insecticide widely approved for organic gardening. You can safely use Spinosad on all vegetable, fruit and flower plants.They are safe around pets and children.
