Good stuff! It cleared aphids from my allotment very fast and safe.

Adrian, North Yorkshire
At first appearance it is quite expensive for such a small bottle, 100ml. However, it is very concentrated and a little goes a long way, so it is good value. I found it to be effective against spider mite.

Spray Programme and Harvest

Crops may be sprayed at 7 day intervals and harvested
24 hours after the last application.

Crop Safety

Some species of plant may be sensitive to Pyrethrum 5 EC
and show signs of yellowing, particularly after a second
application. Do not apply to open blooms and test spray
on a small number of representative plants before
spraying larger batches. Certain types of bedding plants
may suffer some damage to any flowers present at the
time of spraying. Subsequent new growth is unaffected.
\n

APPLICATION
Wash Equipment thoroughly immediately after use. Fill
the tank with clean water plus some wetter or detergent
and flush out. Refill with water and spray out before
storage or using other products. Traces of Pyrethrum 5 EC
may cause damage to susceptible crops sprayed later.

\n
Pyrethrum 5 EC must be stored in a suitable
pesticide store in a dark place.
\n

Resistance

Pesticide resistance in glasshouse whitefly and some
aphids is widespread. Where strains resistant to products
containing pyrethrins occur, this product is unlikely to give
satisfactory control. Note: Resistant strains of the tobacco
whitefly are also known to occur.
