[QUOTE=greendoctor;5022041]Ric. No Dylox 6.2 G for me. I spray mine in high volumes of water and that water is pH adjusted. I am missing all of the old insecticides. Back in the day, Hawaii had a problem with sod webworm. Now not so much because most fine turf is zoysia. I need to ask Carol Browner, the EPA administrator that took most of the OP and carbamate insecticides down in 2000 why I am still alive. No, I do not have Dursban Twitch. In another time, it was Dursban, diazinon, Orthene, Sevin, and Turcam. Structural PCOs would know Turcam as Ficam W.

I remember when there was AG labeled Dylox. That's right. Many beneficial insects are not affected by Dylox. Neither are bees. However, caterpillars and plant bugs are very sensitive to Dylox. You could spray a soybean or alfalfa field with Dylox, kill the worms eating the crop, and the bees would not die.[/QUOTE

Ah, the good old days. We used a bunch at Dismal... Turcam worked well.
