Monterey Take Down Spray is a pyrethrin-powered insecticide spray for the home gardener that controls many of the most problematic garden pests. It works as a contact insecticide to kill eggs, larval and adult forms of the targeted pest insects. But Monterey Take Down Garden Spray is much more than an excellent insecticide - it contains canola oil which acts as a surfactant (spreader/sticker) and allows it to be applied as a dormant spray to control overwintering pest populations.
For the most effective results, apply at the first sign of a pest population.
Safe to use on fruits and vegetables throughout the growing season up to the day of harvest.
The concentrated form allows the user to mix just what is needed for complete application to the desired area.
Can be used in container plants, greenhouses, grow rooms, hoop houses, vegetable gardens, vineyards, interiorscapes and on houseplants.
This product is toxic to bees and aquatic organisms, please refer to the "Environmental Hazards" section under the Use Instructions tab for more information.
