If you're happy spending $4.50 to $5.00 a container for the Bayer and you get some ridiculously low% Imidacloprid go for it....If I remember correctly it was close to only 1%. You're mainly paying for water, glycerine and an antifoaming agent.
My Merit WP is 75% Imidacloprid and you only need 1/8 tsp. per gallon. Not a crazy amount like with the Bayer.
Afraid is not just the economy of it. I'm a toxicologist by trade, and I just prefer to own and use as few chemicals as possible. If the beneficial insects had done the trick I would have quite there. I get lots of spiders and occasional lacewings and hover flies in the gh, and I hate to loose all that with tougher chemical regimes. I handle plently of nasty things at work, and prefer not to increase my exposure at home too.
