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.
I still have a few packs of Ficam.


it is one thing to do a off label applications. It is total stupidity to post it on the world wide web and expect people to approve.
