This is Donna Emery from Glover Nursery in West Jordan, Utah. We're going to talk about insecticides for roses and flowers. There are many different choices for insecticides for roses and flowers. You can use organic products or chemical ones. An example of an organic product would be this rose and flower vegetable spray, rose, flower and vegetable spray. It's made of neem oil. We have one that's neem oil plus pyrethrin which is even more effective against insects. With an organic spray like this you may have to use it more frequently than some of the chemicals. We also have organic fungicides such as this Serenade or this Dusting Sulfur that are effective on roses and also a chemical based fungicide that you can spray to control disease. To help with insects, you can use a combination insecticide and fertilizer like this one. It has a systemic insecticide which means it's absorbed into the tissues of the plant through the root system. It's not sprayed on or poured on. It's absorbed in through the roots. So this one is going to last a good long time, usually four to six weeks. This chemical one from Bayer also has a fungicide in it. It's more expensive because fungicide is expensive but you get fertilizer, insecticide and fungicide with one application, again every four to six weeks. This is Donna Emery from Glover Nursery in Utah. We've been talking about insecticides for roses and flowers.
