It is the time of year to move plants indoors, and with that, they need to be treated with Hi-Yield Systemic Insect Granules. Sprinkle the granular insecticide in the soil, scratch it in, and water the area a little bit to activate the chemical. Since it is a systemic, the plant absorbs the chemical up through the root system, and it helps protect the plant’s new growth for up to eight weeks. At the eight week mark, it’s recommended you reapply. This is a good product to use on houseplants, or items you’ve brought indoors for the winter season. It’s especially helpful if the plants have been moving from indoors to outdoors and back and forth. It is important to apply this product before actual bug problems occur, or at the first sign of a problem. If you have any immediate concerns with bugs on the foliage, you may need to use our Bonide Insecticidal Soap to treat the actual plant leaves. Follow all label instructions for more information and guidance.
