Question From: Huntington Station, New York, United States
Q: I have an andromeda that is being destroyed by lace bugs. I have been making my own soap spray because there is a birds nest in the andromeda plant and I hesitate to use an insecticide. Do you have any suggestions? I fear I am losing the battle against the bugs! My andromeda is in sorry conditions and in the same bed I have azeleas and another andromeda. Please reply as soon as possible. Many Thanks!
Spinosad is listed as safe for use around birds. It's the main ingredient in Bonide's Capt. Jack's Dead Bug Brew. Read the label before using, Best Nancy
