In this article, I will be reviewing SB plant invigorator and bug killer to see if it is an effective plant rejuvenator and bug killer. If you continue to read you will find out. In a previous article, I reviewed the Garlic Wonder Organic Concentrate which I sang the high praises for.
Garlic Wonder Organic concentrate is not the only chemical that can be used to treat your plants, but others out there can act as a foliar feed and kill bugs. This is where the plant invigorator and bug killer concentrate comes into the equation, and we will see of this concentrate is good as Garlic Wonder Organic Concentrate or not. Find out here as we delve into this topic further.
WHAT IS SB PLANT INVIGORATOR AND BUG KILLER?
This is a 50ml bottle of concentrate that when diluted makes up to 50litre is spray. This is enough to fill 50, 1 l litre spray bottles or 100, ½ litre spray bottles. All this for a bargain price.
The product is an environmentally friendly pesticide, fungicide, and foliar feed, which can be used for all edibles and flowers.
We are all demanding lower concentrations of pesticides in our foods, to have as little residue of pesticides as possible. We do not want to consume harmful pesticides and so we have to look for alternatives. This is where organic-based chemicals come into play.
The spray can be used by any gardener for their fruit trees and bushes, vegetables, flowers, roses, shrubs, and other trees to control a wide range of insects. The range of ghastly beasties that can be controlled includes whitefly (a real pest in greenhouses), aphids (a pest in dry and sunny summers), spider mites (another pest in the greenhouses), mealybugs, scale and psyllids.
It works by having a physical mode of action that is not chemical or biological-based. It basically makes the leaves conditions for bugs as difficult as possible, so they do not want to live on your plants.
If you follow the instructions, correctly pests will not become resistant to this action. The problem with some conventional treatments is that over time bugs become resistant and it will become less effective over time. This product, therefore, has a clear advantage.
It is effective as an insecticide is without question, as some users have complained that the critters still remain after the plant has been sprayed. If the user is not following instructions or if the spray is not working, the answer is still uncertain.
IT IS ALSO A FOLIAR FEED
The product also acts as a foliar feed, where some nutrients are transferred to the plant via its leaves. This will prevent chlorosis (yellowing of the leaves). It will, therefore, improve the quality of the leaves, turning them greener and more healthy-looking. It also claimed to act as a plant wash to make plant leaves look shiner, especially true of houseplants.
CAN BE A WEAK FUNGICIDE
It can act as a weak fungicide in particular for mildew. To do this it must be applied frequently at the first sign of an attack. I must stress it will not work for other forms of fungal infections from rusts, spots, or rots, so do not use them to treat these conditions.
SB plant invigorator is biodegradable and non-toxic to humans and pets.
As you can see it has many uses in the garden from greenhouses to houseplants. If it can be used indoors then it cannot be all bad. We are all familiar with foul-smelling sprays often used outside, so you do not have to worry if you use the spray in an enclosed area; a real bonus.
You can even add the diluted mixture directly to the compost to feed plants and to deal with some of the soil-based pests.
- Makes 50 litres of spray for a reasonable price, considering how many bottles of these sprays you would have to use.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Non-toxic to humans and pets.
- Can treat insect infestations.
- Can be used as a foliar feed.
- Has some abilities to treat powdery and downy mildew.
- It may not work on all insects, as some complain that heavy infestations are not dealt with.
- Only has limited range as a fungicide.
WHY SHOULD I BUY SB INVIGARATOR AND BUG KILLER CONCENTRATE?
To be truthful I have not used this product but I have worked with gardeners who have. The result is a mixed bag, as a bug spray, it can be effective, especially if it is used regularly and at an early sign of infestations.
As a foliar feed, it is very good and comparable with others on the market. I would say it is not the best, but most certainly it is not the worst.
As a fungicide, it is very limited and partially successful in treating powdery and downy mildew. For other fungal infections, it is not effective at all.
If you combine all three modes of action then it is not a bad product. It may not be the best insecticide, it may not be the best foliar feed, and it may not be the best fungicide but not many products will do all three better.
SO WHICH IS BETTER GARLIC WONDER ORGANIC CONCENTRATE OR SB INVIGARATOR?
This question I leave up to you to answer. I have presented the case for both products and I leave it up to you to decide to which the best is.
