Homeowner Pesticides - Active Ingredients

As if gardening weren't complicated enough, the subject of pesticides adds another layer of complexity.

Beyond all of the plant names to remember, there is a whole new spectrum of insecticide, fungicide and herbicide product names.

To make it easier to compare the different 'cides to each other, I have compiled a list of common homeowner products and their active ingredient(s).

This allows you at least to determine if two competing products have the same ingredient - - and whether you can save money by purchasing a product having the same chemical another higher-priced product contains.

Prune boxwood - but not with shears. Use a hand pruner to make foliage "holes" in the greenery so light can penetrate to the trunk.
