With all the rain at the moment, something we are not use too I thought I would wait for a couple of clear days before spraying

Just curious to know what results you had with the Dipel? Have been keeping an eye open at the nursery & garden centres for this product but would also like to know how you went?

We use a flour spray, its just made out of flour and water.

Works quite well as long as there is no rain to wash them off.

where do you get dipel from? would bunnings have it?
I tried derris dust so waiting to see what will happen. I bought it to dust the chookies but noticed it is good for caterpillars too.

I get good results with Dipel - couldn't grow brassicas here without it. Just make sure you spray under the leaves and down into the heart of the plant. Not when there's rain about. Re-apply after rain. Easy to use and economical.

Any nursery would have Dipel and bunnings too. Dipel is the brand name and the active ingredient is also known as BT or Bacillus thuringiensis.

I will have to head down to bunnings and have a look for this.

I have also had a lot of birds going after the seedlings, so we have netted the area, hopefully this keeps the moth away and stops the cycle, unfortunately it is a tad invasive :-(
