Provado.

Recommended Posts

I thought that it had been banned. The effects on bees memories is suspected to be not good but some people still argue this, even though it has been proven in lab trials.

I think it's just the concentrate that's been banned in the UK, as far as I'm aware you can still buy the ready mixed spray bottle. I could be wrong though as I don't live in the UK.

Didn't someone say in another thread fairly recently that one of the key chemicals had been removed/changed ? I can't find the thread in question, but i'm sure the chemical mentioned began with the letter T.

Sorry for being a bit useless but that's about all i can remember :laugh1:

I use the ready to use Provado Ultimate Bug Killer, and it contains 0.15g/l thiacloprid as a readyto use aqueous formulation.

Folks, this is a problem that just doesn't even have to exist. You just simply do not spray neo-nicotinioids on plants that are or are going to flower soon. Then it is practically impossible to poison bees. This is literally just common sense. Don't put poison on bee food. Duh!

Correct me if I'm wrong but Provado doesn't treat spider mites as it's not a miticide.

my dad doesn't know anything about carnivorous plants but when I was telling him about the dormancy he jumped up and said fungus fighter, then went in his garage and gave me a full spray bottle of it. I've been hesitant to use it because no one has mentioned it but now I'll give it a go on a few at risk plant this year.
