Q: Why is this product called Beetle & Boxelder Bug Killer when there are so many more insects listed on the label?
A: This product does in fact control many more insects than just beetles and boxelder bugs (the labels lists 100+ insects and mites). We opted to call it Beetle & Boxelder Bug Killer since there are many beetles listed on the label, and to call attention to boxelder bugs since many insecticide products do not list them on their labels.
Q: What is a boxelder bug?
A: These insects get their name because they feed primarily on developing seeds of boxelder trees (also maple and ash trees). They are black with reddish or orange markings on their back. Adults have a flattened and elongated oval body shape that is about 1 inch long. Boxelder bugs are mainly a nuisance pest when they enter structures including homes and sheds to overwinter.
Q: What is the listed active ingredient pyrethrins?
A: Pyrethrins are found naturally in some chrysanthemum flowers, and have insecticidal and insect-repellent properties that have been used for many years. It is considered to be an organic insecticide when not combined with synthetic synergists.
Q: Can this product be used on edible plants/crops?
A: Yes, Beetle & Boxelder Bug Killer can be used on edible plants/crops up to and including the day of harvest.
Q: Is it okay to use this product indoors on houseplants?
Great for these nasty Lily beetles! And Japanese beetles too.
I dont love using pest control, but I had an extreme infestation and nothing was working. Pyrethrins break down quickly which was why I was willing to give this a try. I did, and it worked with only one treatment. DEFINITELY recommend for desperate gardeners.
The Only Japanese Beetle Killer
My Wife's roses were getting shredded by Japanese beetles. This killed them on contact within 30secs. It works, it also repells them from returning.
i honestly dont believe anything product works better than this.. love it, my garden loves it
