Do you have any opinion which is more dangerous, Imidacloprid(as in Bayer
Tree and Shrub) or Disyston (as in Bonide)?
I understand both can be used as fern systemics to kill scale.
Please note these websites:
http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/disulfot.htm  for Disyston
http://extoxnet.orst.edu/pips/imidaclo.htm  for Imidacloprid
I understand toxicity is partly due to agent identity and partly due to the
concentration at which it is used.

> Imidocloprid spikes???? What in hey are you talking about and where did
you get them???are they registered for houseplant use??? That seems rather
drastic for home use....The Imidicloprid spray I use in the GH is a 12
REI....sorry just shocked to see such a dangerous pesticide used by
homeowners...will have to do some research on it....if it's what I think it
is I wouldn't use it in my house period....
