is there a liquid insecticide that you use for pretty much everything. i know that for some insects and some plants you have to use a certian product. what i want to know is what is the best all around liquid insecticide. liquid seven, cross check whats your favorite. YES I AM LICENSED.

Hi bud -- our favorite is 'Crosscheck' from LESCO (same as Talstar). Heavy duty quick kill plus some systemic properties.

p.s. Been using Crosscheck for bagworms this week. 100% kill.

9 to 10 ounces per 100 gallons.

crosscheck is what i was thinking about useing because the property were i need to spray has an arb full of bagworms and the bushes right beside it has white flies. i was trying to look at the label on lesco.com but you can really read it. how much do you mix per gallon. your rate of 10 oz per 100 gall seems low but i have no clue.

We like Talstar/Crosscheck also, But you shouild switch off to other products occasionally. Especially the miticide

Bifenthrin/ Talstar works real well, and the bottom finally fell out on the price so that makes it even better.

Talstar goes for 27.00 per 96oz. bottle and the generics go for 28.00 per gallon down here (as long as you don't go to jdl).

I would do a little checking around, even online, or local grain/fert. place. There has got to be a UAP/UHS around.

We use Orthene and Crosscheck. I am about done ordering through JDL, though.. not too happy with them anymore.

You should look at bifin IT for the bag worms(same as crosscheck, just cheaper) but it will not work very well on white flies. For them you really need to get a systemic insecticide (merit) and make sure to soak down the shrubs/plants with the white flies. Also need to soak the roots because merit is taken into the plant through the roots. Merit will work on just about any insects that pierce the plant and feed on it. Both of those products you can get at Lesco or go online at univar.com

it all depends on what your target insect is.

Conserve, Provaunt, Acelepryn, all work well for bagworms. Also look at Bandit liquid, Acephate, Orthene, Safari, Tristar, Azatrol, Cyonara, pyriproxifen (can't remember trade name) etc...
