Chemical Action and Usages: Carbaryl is a general use carbamate insecticide for outdoor use only. It is available as a wettable powder, liquid concentrate, dust, granules or RTU product. It controls a broad range of insects on certain fruits/berries/nuts (e.g. certain beetles, lace bugs, leafhopper, thrips), on certain ornamental flowers, trees and shrubs (Japanese beetle, psyllids, scale, tent caterpillar, bagworm), on lawns (chiggers, cutworms, armyworms, sow bugs, ants, ticks). Carbaryl works both as a stomach poison (insects ingest material) and by contact (insect is directly hit by the spray or crawls over the treated foliage). Attacks insect’s nervous systems.
