We all know our bee population is rapidly diminishing, so why not use a herbicide instead of an insecticide to save as many bees as possible? To learn more about bees and pollination, refer to my post on Helper Bees.

  1. Thanks for sharing this article with us all. Its time more people knew about such products insted of just going for the chemicals that destroy everything else around them. I know that wasps and stuff can be a pain, but afterall, they are natural. But obviously theycan be a bit much. So its good to have natural products to deal with them.

    1. I’m glad you learned from the review. Hopefully you don’t have too many wasps to deal with and rather have things like aphids and whiteflies. The Earth’s Ally Insect Control will definitely help with them. Thanks for the comment. Let me know if you try the product and how effective it is.


  2. Hi Nina,

    This is a great find! The garden is coming in and my plants are starting to really take off an I am already trying to get the bugs away from them. I am so glad I have found this and it is readily available at Lowe’s. 

    I will be using this over the weekend. We are in an area that the cicadas are climbing out this year and I am concerned for my garden. Do you think this will help for keeping those away from my plants?



    1. I understand your concern about cicadas. However, from what I’ve read they suck the sap from woody stems, such as bushes and young trees rather than flowers and vegetables. “Sapling trees, ornamental shrubs, blueberries, grape vines, and bramble fruits like raspberries and blackberries are all in danger, as are oaks, maples, cherries, dogwoods, and redbuds.” Sited from USA Today.

      As far as using this product to remediate the problem, I’m not too sure. The product only works on soft bodied insects. Once the cicada emerges from the ground, it does molt its exoskeleton which is the hard bodied portion of the insect. But it quickly grows another exoskeleton. I am not sure how long it takes for the exoskeleton to be fully developed. Perhaps you could catch the cicadas at the soft bodied stage and use Nature’s Ally Insect Control then. 

      If you are really concerned, try and delay any new plantings, wrap your plants in netting with holes around 1cm in diameter, and if they are damaged, water them at least one inch a week and apply mulch around the tree or plant without touching the trunk. This will help revive them. 

      I hope this helped. From everything I’ve read, though, they are more of a nuisance than a hindrance. Birds, frogs, and other creatures love to feed on them. They will have quite a feast!


      Please let me know how you made out and thanks for the comment.

  3. Hi.

    I have 3 about 5 feet bougainvilleas . Something is really chewing up all the outer leaves. Not sure what to do to protect the leaves. Not sure if spraying leaves with Earth Ally or Neem oil will help. I only like organic. Another question I have. Our neighbor said, she plants lavender and garlic plants under her plants that have problems and helps deter the chewing bugs away.

  4. I’ve just started using this product and would like to know if it’s safe to water my houseplants with, to use as a systemic insecticide, or will it damage my roots and plants?

    1. Thanks for reaching out. This product is mainly used as a spray in which you saturate the tops and bottoms of leaves and the stems. After researching it more, I did not see that it can be used as a systemic (adding it to the soil).

      If you prefer a systemic, try Bonide Systemic Houseplant Insect Control. It comes in granulars. You mix the granulars into the top layer of the soil and then water it thoroughly. Do not apply this onto any edible plant, though, such as herbs, vegetables, or fruit bearing trees. And as always, follow the instructions on the label.

      This product is harmful to hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies when they are actively eating the plants. So be careful.

      I hope this helped you. Please write again if you have any more questions.
