Answer: Hi Amelie,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Yates Mavrik (Chewing and Sucking Insect Pest Killer) is a great product and suitable for use on your Cole Crops such as Broccoli and Kale. However, its registration does not allow it to be used on your herbs such as your nasturtium or sage.

What I would recommend using is our Natures Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray. It is registered against the caterpillars and other insects such as aphids, thrips and earwigs.

Hopefully this will help get the bugs under control.

Kind regards

Yates Horticulturalist
