    Q:Am I correct in thinking that the old Sevin Dust could be directly applied to pets. The new however evidently cannot. Is this correct? It used to be used mixed with soil & ashes for chickens to dust bathe in for controlling mites, is this still possible?

    A:  Hello, Sevin Dust has never been listed to be used on animals. Please do not use on animals for controlling mites. Thank you.

          Need it so I have plants in garden

          Size of container adding to pollution
          Size of container misleading as to quantity of procduct. The container was less than half full although probably is 1 lb net weight as shown. Could do more in reducing pollution. The Sevin powder worked miracles though on an underground colony of yellow jackets that I had tried burning out and drowning with dish detergent which only succeeded in me being stung several times.
            Used 7 dust and 7 liquid and 7 granules in my garden.
            The squash bugs were eating up my garden!! I used all three 7 products that I memtioned in the Headline. The 7 dust did fine at first then the bugs came back with a vengeance! I changed to 7 liquid. It worked for a short time... Then the bugs came back with more hunger than before! So I went and bought a $20 bag of 7 granules. It worked for a week or so. Then the bugs were back. I ended up buying 3 bags of granules.. and they still ate up my garden! I spent alot of $$ and my garden was still ate up! I even tried Neem oil.. no change! So im up in the air about what to try next year! Anyone have any suggestions?? I bet i spent over $100 on seven products! I'm definitely trying another product next year! I hear some people say 7 works good.... Maybe I just have some really bad bugs at my house! Up in the air!!!

                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was my first time using the brand GardenTech Sevin Insect Killer Dust and I am a new fan!! This stuff does exactly what it's supposed to do and that is to kill the insects that ruin my crops in my garden!! I have used many different kinds and had no luck until I came across this brand!! By now I would be able too see how badly the insects have destroyed my garden but not this year so far my garden is healthy and growing!! It can be used on over 125 fruits and vegetables!! It starts working immediately upon contact!! You can also use it on your lawn to keep unwanted insects off of your grass too!! I have already bought another container for backup because I never want to run out of this stuff!!

                    Slowly working
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had a big problem with grasshoppers and chiggers in my garden this year, and my plants were being eaten up by grasshoppers! I used the garden tech Sevin insect killer dust on all of my affected plants and I am seeing a lot less grasshopper damage to my plants! I have applied it about 3 times in the past 2 weeks and am not seeing additional damage! As far as I am concerned it works for grasshoppers but not sure about the chiggers. I will continue to use this product. I used in my vegetable garden and flower garden.

                      Great product, but sadly not pet safe
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was excited to receive this product, as I live in SWFL and have quite a lot of insects surrounding my various plants/flowers. Unfortunately as it isn't pet safe I was only able to use it on a very limited amount of my plants. That being said, it worked like magic where I was able to place it. My plants have been getting chewed up quite badly every afternoon. After a couple weeks there was a huge difference in the leaves on my plants. The plants overall appear much healthier, and random holes have stopped popping up in the leaves.

                        Keeps Beetles off Roses
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I use this to keep Japanese Beetles off my roses. In the past, I've used Neem oil, Bayer 4 in 1, and Spectracide. None worked at all. I would pull Beetles off and spray them. Some did nothing while others it took 20 minutes before it finally started slowing them down. I've also tried traps which did nothing to help my roses. So far, Savin has worked much better than all else I've tried.

                          Works great
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had some plants and trees last year that I was afraid were not going to make this year as they were being eaten up by something....thankfully they did come back this year but I really wanted to make sure I stopped the insects from getting a grip on them. I tried the Sevin insect killer dust and so far I am thrilled with it! My peaches look great and and there are a ton of viable fruits this year. The biggest change was my weeping cherry tree, I thought for sure it wasn't going to make it, the insects almost stripped it of all its leaves last year. This year, the leaves are so heavy I can barely moves the branches to mow beneath it. I highly recommend this product.
