    Good morning! Do you use tobacco dust in any of your organic pesticides?

    We do not. Nicotine is a very toxic chemical and works as a broad spectrum poison. In other words, it kills all insects that it comes in contact with including beneficial insects. It is also a known carcinogen.



    I wouldn’t ever consider using tobacco powder as an organic pesticide, as even though many people think that all organic fertilizers and pesticides are safe.
