Default Spinosad

Hi Everybody,

Spinsad... What do you think?

A Google search just finds manufacturer propaganda and
dense chemical data.

This seems to be "organic" since it comes from soil
bacteria. Although it apparently is NOT the same thing
as BT. Warns that resistance can occur is more than 4
applications in a season.

Targets are caterpillars who wanna eat veggies,
especially broccoli and family (similar to the targets
for BT.) Toxic to bees while wet.

It originates from Dow AgroSciences, which makes me
suspicious right there.

Whatcha think?
