Dear Spud,

Carbaryl is a broad spectrum insecticide used to control most chewing insects. It is a contact and stomach poison that paralyses the nervous system of the insect. In recent years Yates have reviewed its list of home garden pest controls and as a result have discontinued a number of chemicals (Carbaryl being one of these products). We have introduced products that are low toxic and or naturally- derived product that have minimal impact on the environment and break down rapidly into natural components. As a replacement for Carbaryl, Yates now have products such as Dipel, Success, Mavrik & Yates Pyrethrum Insect Pest Killer Concentrate that will control caterpillars & chewing insects with minimal impact on the environment. Yates White Oil is a contact spray that blocks the breathing pores of insects causing suffocation and rapid death. Yates White Oil will control pests such as scale, mites, mealy bug and leaf miner on citrus.
