Richgro Bug Killa Granular Garden Insecticide 1kg

Richgro Bug Killa provides a minimum of 2 months extended protection against a wide range of sucking insects on all your ornamental plants, including Roses, Azaleas, Camellias, Gardenias and Lilly pilly in the garden or in pots. Richgro Bug Killa is a systemic insecticide that is taken up by the plant's roots to control pests. It also contains Iron and Zeolite which are beneficial to plant health, helping your ornamental plants grow taller and stronger, and making fertilisers more efficient.

Safer to use and more convenient than aphid and mealybug sprays, Bug Killa is gentle on your plants. Choosing granules rather than a spray means there is no risk of scorching plant leaves on hot days, allowing you to give your plants complete protection against sucking insects even in the heat of summer. Watering after application increases penetration and allows faster take-up by the plant’s root system.

One 250g bottle treats up to 500 plants, making it an affordable and efficient solution for the home gardener. Its versatile nature makes it ideal for use in both garden beds and flower pots.

FEATURES:

  • No spraying / 8-10 weeks effectiveness
  • All plants except edibles
  • Contains zeolite and iron sulphate to dissolve in the soil when watered in
  • Granular - easy to use with no mixing and no spraying.
  • For pots and gardens.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Is Richgro Bug Killa Granules effective against borers in Pencil Conifers?

A. I got this reply from the manufacturer Richgro below.

"The Bug Killa product can be effective against borers, but it depends upon the size of the tree. If the tree is over, say, 3 metres tall, it would take so long for the product to get into the system of the tree that the results would be limited. If it is only a small tree then yes it would certainly be worth a go. But with larger trees, I understand they have to be injected with a chemical rather than using a product like Bug Killa. Bug Killa is more for plants like roses or small hedges and plants up to about 1 – 2 metres, larger than that and it will not be as effective."
