Due to a wide array of various products containing the same active ingredient for insecticide recommendations, when appropriate, the active ingredient is listed instead of the name of the formulated product.
a. Sevin may worsen the mite problem and, when used shortly after bloom, can cause apples to fall from the tree.
b. This compound is very toxic to bees and should not be used until after petal fall.
Broad-spectrum insecticides (those with a large number of pests listed on the label) have significant potential to be harmful to non-target organisms such as bees and other beneficial or predatory insects.
