Although SB Plant Invigorator has been applied to a wide range of plants it is recommended that when it is used for the first time a small area of plant or crop is tested first.
As with any spray it is important not to spray when the sunlight is strong as this can cause scorch. Even water can cause scorch as droplets can remain on leaves and buds. The drops act in a simlar way to glass and rays of sun which can result in scorch of material below the glass.
Does SB Plant Invigorator Affect Beneficial Insects?
It is important to keep beneficial insects as these help to keep control of plant pests. Many of these are naturally occurring but can also be introduced as part of an integrated pest management programme.
SB Plant Invigorator is suitable for use alongside beneficial insects as the following has been found:
Parasitic wasps developing within aphid (greenfly and blackfly) and whitfly mummies do not appear to be afected.
Soil dwelling predatory mites such as Hypoaspis do not appear to be affected. Leaf predatory mites, Amblyseius and are Phytoseiulus are affected if there are too many applications.
Larger robust predators such as hoverflies, lacewing larvae, ladybirds and mirid bugs appear unaffected. Bumble bees also appear unaffected.
