Insect Pest Control


Protecting autumn vegies

Vegies can be prone to attack from a range of insect pests, all eager to suck the sap from tender young leaves or devour large amounts of foliage.

Here are the insect pests to watch out for on your autumn vegies:

Sometimes it’s difficult to know which pest is attacking your plants, as many are expertly camouflaged or cause similar symptoms. Baythroid Advanced Insect Killer for Gardens is a handy product to have on hand, as it can be used to control a wide range of insect pests, like aphids, bugs, caterpillars, thrips and whiteflies on vegetables like Brussels sprouts, cabbages, cauliflowers and tomatoes. So, you don’t need to be an insect identification expert to keep your plants healthy and protected. Start spraying when insects or their damage first appear and repeat as required. Spray both sides of foliage, as insect pests are often underneath leaf surfaces.
