Bee friendly alternative to Sevin
I have tried searching the forums for info on this subject but haven't turned up much. Sorry if it's a question that is constantly repeated (I don't think it is, from the lack of search results...)
I try not to spray my garden (corn, watermellon, cantaloupe, squash, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and carrots) but every now and then it's just covered up with all sorts of critters eating holes in my fruit and I feel like I should. I have a ton of bees buzzing about and I don't want to hurt them.
I have Sevin spray that I use sparingly throughout the year. I didn't know until recently that it kills bees, and I read something in a book somewhere that a certain spray will get the bad critters but not kill bees, but I forgot what it was.
I'm wanting something that I can just go to Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, or any mediocre "nursery" and pick up. I don't really want to special order some magical spray from halfway across the globe or some trendy organic spray that costs 60 dollars a quart...
