This year has been slow for the bugs to appear, probably because it has been drier than last year, but when we lost a Roma Tomato plant--totally loaded with tomatoes, of course--to cutworms, we knew we wanted to try to prevent the losses we had last year. I decided to go with EndAll Insect Killer from Safer Brand.
EndALL insect spray
Since I sprayed a week ago, I haven't lost another plant to cutworms, haven't seen the little green and brown things that ate the tomatoes last year and something has stopped eating the leaves. I didn't find EndALL Insect Killer to be a skin irritant the way I found the stuff I tried when we lived in Las Vegas.
EndAll has Neem oil in it, which gives it a smell that is familiar, but which you just can't place. Because it kills the larva and the adults, I am hoping it will prevent a lot of problems by reducing the population this early in the season. We've also increased the amount of Marigolds and Basil in the garden, because they are supposed to keep insects away too, but I think the EndAll might be give us the firepower needed to keep the veggies from being destroyed. If you're going for a pesticide, I would have to start with EndAll. When I sprayed with it last week, I noticed that it killed aphids and slugs too. It also killed the infestation of little bugs that were hanging out on the 70's Scarecrow. Woohoo, go EndAll!
