Bonide Insect Control

Bonide offers a wide variety of plant care products ranging from fertilizers and seeds to chemicals and devices for controlling home and garden pests. Its selection of pest control agents includes insecticide sprays, dust, granules, liquid formulations, pellets and even diatomaceous earth. Each Bonide insect control kills or repels a particular insect or a group of related insects. Most of them use one or more synthetic or natural chemical agents to curtail insect pests while a few employ a lure-and-trap method that is equally effective.

Ridding Your Garden of Bugs, Slugs and Insects
Bonide makes products that control the spread of insects like ants, flies, fleas, bedbugs, mites, earwigs, cockroaches and beetles. Also, the brand also offers products that kill different types of worms including those that are larvae for these insects. These insecticides can keep pests away from turfs, shrubs, trees and a wide range of garden and house plants including flowers and vegetables.

The right product to choose from Bonide's lineup depends on the target insect. For example, while it is possible to use a general-purpose bug killer to combat a fire ant infestation in a garden, an insecticide specially formulated against this insect will be even more efficient. Similarly, a Bonide formulation may control certain insects but only in certain plants. Therefore, only choose the insecticide that can kill an invading bug without harming target houseplants.

Bonide Insect Control Made Easy
While Bonide makes fast-acting insect control formulations, the duration of the effectiveness varies. Some last year round while others are only potent for a few weeks. The former kind only requires an annual application to lawns and garden plots while the latter is made for repeated and frequent use. Furthermore, Bonide also makes a line of odorless insect repellent products meant for indoor use. These are safe for potted plants and usually contain all-natural ingredients. There are other organic insecticides from this brand containing natural ingredients that are biodegradable. Such products are safe to use even up to the day of harvest. These are ideal for organic gardening and especially appealing to eco-conscious gardeners.

Bonide makes it easy for gardeners to apply its products correctly. Dispensing those formulated as powders only require quick mixing in watering cans. Gardeners just have to sprinkle the brand's insecticidal dust on leaves to protect them from insects. Some of the brand's liquid formulations come as concentrates to dilute with water. Others are available in RTS (ready-to-spray) or RTU (ready-to-use) bottles.

Safely Controlling Insects with Traps
In addition to insecticidal and insect repellent products containing chemical agents that are toxic to bugs, Bonide also offers insect pest control products that trap rather than kill or repel. These traps usually have pheromones to lure specific insects. The brand employs a dual lure system that combines pheromonal and floral scents. These are usually natural, odorless and non-toxic. Therefore, home gardeners can also use some of these traps indoors to reduce insect pest infestations.

The lures can attract insects that are several feet away. Usually, outdoor traps have a farther reach than the indoor ones. Once pulled into a trap, attracted insects collect inside a disposable bag from which they cannot escape. These Bonide traps are reusable and have replaceable collection bags and lure scents.
