Very interesting read. I noticed that the use of these need to be judicious because of bees.

I saw that too. great for greens, non flowering plants, but I would use on the flowering plants only with a infestation. I just did my mustards and kale today, because of aphid infestation in the greenhouse. I have a few greens outdoor but they have no aphids. I guess it the night cold that keeping the aphids off of them. Will give follow up on the results.
