This updated version of PyGanic offers the same terrific benefits as the PyGanic 1.4 that you've come to know and love. With this broad spectrum organic insecticide you will receive a quick kill of even the most destructive of pests without worrying about how it will affect your plants and those who eat them. Pyrethrins, a botanical insecticide made from Chrysanthemums, is the key here; it has been used safely and effectively for millennia. PyGanic Gardening's spray formulation can be applied in a variety of ways, making it super-easy to use no matter what size your garden is. It is recommended that you apply this product early in the morning or late in the evening for two reasons: pyrethrins can degrade in direct sunlight so you want to give them a chance to work and this product is toxic to honeybees and they are not active at these times. PyGanic Gardening works best if it is applied when pests first appear, before there is a heavy infestation. Thorough coverage is also key; direct contact needs to be made with the pest insects. You can use this OMRI listed, NOP compliant insecticide at any point throughout your growing season and up to the day of harvest.
