Your Questions Answered

Melody – Massachusetts

Is your disease control fungicide harmful to insects?

Melody – Massachusetts

It could harm insects is they are sprayed directly. If you have beneficial insects present at the time of spraying, I would wait until they are less active in that area.

Jeff – Oregon

I have earwigs and pillbugs that I’d like to get rid of, so bought Dr Earth Final Stop Yard and Garden Insect Killer. But I also have earthworms in my raised bed, which I don’t want to kill off. Is this product safe for that?

Jeff – Oregon

If you do a soil drench (mix the solution with water and pour it around your plants) this could have a negative effect on earthworms. It does require complete saturation to kill insects and earthworms are extremely resilient so it would take some aggressive application to kill them. It may deter them from the area for a small period of time. In summary, I would personally do a light soil drench, and take care of the negative pests, and give the earthworms about a week to come back to that area again.

Chris – South Carolina

When using a top dress method, what do you recommend the water PH to be for the soil and for coco?

Chris – South Carolina

As long as you on monitoring and correcting your soil pH. I don’t know that I would focus on water pH. You would probably want your pH to be between 5.5 and 6.5 depending on which part of the growth phase you are in.

Daniel – Mississippi

Does any particular one of your products have a complete set of macro and micro nutrients?

Daniel – Mississippi

While we do not claim any Micro Nutrients or all of the Macro Nutrients on our packaging they are present in each one of our blends. They can vary depending on each lot of product and for that reason we do not claim them.

I purchased Dr Earth Vegetable Garden Insect Killer Concentrate, but now that I need it, my hose has died and I can’t afford to buy another one.

Judy – California

In researching the best formula for guava trees, I’ve read that a 6-6-6 fertilizer is most ideal for it to yield fruit, but have noticed that the combination doesn’t seem very common, even at Home Depot. May I ask which would be the best substitution?

Judy – California

I would recommend our Premium Gold all purpose fertilizer 4-4-4 as it is the closest to the 6-6-6 you are looking for.

Sue – Washington

I understand gardenia need acid and I also have hibiscus and angel trumpets. All are in pots. What would you suggest?

Sue – Washington

I would simply use our “Acid Lovers” fertilizer and soil if you can find it locally.

I had purchased the Final Stop® Disease Control Fungicide the bottle tells me 2-oz per gallon of water but doesn’t tell me how often? Is there any recommended application i should go by?

The best effects will result in a dosage every three weeks, if you get an infestation, you can spray once every three days,..Do not spray in direct sun,.. only spray early in the morning, or late in the afternoon for best results.

T.J. – Pennsylvania

What is the best product for preventing squash bugs?

T.J. – Pennsylvania

There is not an organic way to to stop them, you would need a chemical systemic. The best method is to keep the soil very healthy so the plant can defend itself naturally with thick cell walls and protect itself. If you do get an infestation in the future. We make an all purpose insect killer called “Final Stop Yard and Garden Insect Killer”

Phyllis

I ordered the Dr. Earth Final Stop Yard & Garden Insect Killer, not realizing it was a hose end sprayer. I would like to use the contents as a concentrate and mix it with water so I can use it in a spray bottle. Could you give me the ratio of Dr. Earth to water for this means of application?

Phyllis

Please use 4 ounces per gallon of water. Please make sure you reseal the bottle so it does not leak and children do not have access to it.

Jeannie – Nevada

I just bought some liquid fertilizer for my fruit trees and I’m a little confused. Do I spray this on the leaves and blossoms or on the ground underneath?

Jeannie – Nevada

Spray it on the ground at the base of the tree and water it in a little afterwards to drive it down into the soil.

Sue – Oregon

I have several trays of little seedlings that are now about 2″ high and I believe it’s time to start feeding them before transplanting. Which of your liquid formulas should I use and how often should I apply it? I’m already using your house plant food – would that work?

Sue – Oregon

The houseplant food will work great. Use 2 ounces per gallon of water, then use the water to feed the young plants, but do not feed the plants until the seeds have actually sprouted and have their first set of leaves.

Thad – Washington

I heard your new formula for ‘Life’ should be available by mid April. Where can I find it?

Thad – Washington

I am sorry to say that Life was a 2020 release and will not be available for at least 6 more months. Packaging design and registrations are still in the works, but there are a lot of hot deals on the old life formula on Amazon.

Ian – Pennsylvania

I just used the organic pump and grow fertilizer on my plants and after a couple days there’s mold growing at the base where I applied on all my plants?

Ian – Pennsylvania

I suspect you are growing indoors as this is usually when mold shows up due to organics and moisture combined, but no worries, its common to see this and it is harmless, allow the soil to dry out for a couple of day and it should disappear naturally, for future reference, moisture and shade, will always cause mold in any growing environment. Try to give them some direct sun if possible. If not, keep an eye on the dampness of the soil, less damp, means less mold, think of a home and the basement! Same metaphor!

Jean – New Jersey

I used your weed spray product on weeds within my pavers. Now there appears to be oily spots where I sprayed. How do I get rid of those spots?

Jean – New Jersey

If the bricks have never been water sealed any oil can and will leave a glossy stain for a while, but they always go away with time, from sun and water. If you do not want to wait, simply use some dish-washing detergent and a dish brush with water and it will clean it up.Remember these oils are simply essential oils that are cosmetic grade, really safe.

Ryan S. – Kentucky

What is digested food materials? This ingredient is listed on your liquid fertilizers.

Ryan S. – Kentucky

Digested food materials is a general way to saying produce that is recycled instead of put into our dumps. Many grocery stores have to throw out fruits, fish & vegetables that are not in perfect condition. That is where we come in, we recycle this produce and turn it into a compost tea, now known as our liquid fertilizers.
