Cons:Product is harmful to aquatic environments. Dispose of properly.

The Bottom Line: An effective product for controlling pests in the garden!


Garden Tech Sevin 5 Dust Bug Killer is a product from both Bayer Crop Science and Gulfstream Home and Garden. Bayer owns the trademark on Sevin and Gulfstream owns the trademark on Garden Tech. The two companies together produce a product that has been used by gardeners for many years, Sevin-5 Dust. This is a chemical used to kill bugs in the garden, on lawns and for other uses.

Sevin-5 Dust

I purchased Sevin-5 Dust in a 5 lb. bag for around $5.99. I had originally picked up a small canister since I was buying this for only a couple of plants. However, when I looked at the price tag and saw the small container was more than the 5 lb. bag, I quickly made the switch.

What is Sevin-5 Dust you might ask? It is a chemical (carbaryl) that kills over 65 kinds on insects that feed on vegetables, fruits, ornamental brushes and even your lawn. The product is a finely ground dust and you simply dust it on your plants or lawn.

Application

You should always wear plastic or latex gloves when using this product. It is also best to use a shaker can for applying the Sevin-5 Dust on plants. This just makes for easier application and to also avoid using more than necessary. The product is very fine and just sprinkling the dust on from the bag would just be wasting the product.

What Do I Use Sevin-5 Dust For?

I have used Sevin-5 Dust in the past for various vegetables. I don't plant vegetables every year, but when I do, I know I can trust Sevin-5 Dust to kill any bugs that may appear.

Sevin-5 Dust kills bugs on instant. If you notice a few little bites out of the leaves of your vegetable plants, you probably have some kind of pest trying to eat your plant. Dusting with Sevin-5 Dust will take care of the problem.

I have also used Sevin-5 Dust in my aviary. It is a good product to place around the baseboards to kill weevils. It can also be used in nestboxes which are prone to attracting small bugs in hot weather. It only takes a quick sprinkle and you have peace of mind that there will be no bugs entering. If you have bugs in there already, this product kills them on instant without causing any harm to the chicks or parents.

Analysis

Active Ingredients:

Carbaryl: 5%

Product Warnings

This product contains a chemical and should be handled with care. Keep out of reach of children and pets. A special warning is on the package that this product is toxic to aquatic environments and estuarine invertebrates.

Final Recommendation

If you find yourself with little pests invading your vegetable, fruit or flower garden, sprinkle Sevin-5 Dust to take care of the pests! It's highly effective and will save your crop. I give Sevin-5 Dust a nod of approval! Happy gardening!
