  • how to use eco smart granular insecticide

    Created by Elizabeth Goodman on

    Can EcoSMART Insect Killer Granules be used in vegetable gardens? The label says non-toxic, safe around pets and children, but nothing about backyard veggies. Will this product harm beneficial nematodes?

    Hi Elizabeth –

    The manufacturer of our lawn and yard insect killer granules has not gone through the additional expense of registering the product with the EPA for use on food crops. Currently, EcoSMART can be used on lawns, around home foundations as a perimeter treatment, and landscaped areas. Made from eugenol (clove oil), thyme oil, wintergreen oil and peanut shells, It is pet safe and will not harm beneficial nematodes in the soil.

    Apply at a rate of 2-5 pounds per 1,000 square feet.

    Happy gardening!
