Clarification: Cygon is a systemic insecticide with the active ingredient
Dimethoate. It is recommended for outdoor use only on certain ornamental
crops. It has been known to cause phyto-toxicity on a number of normally
non-sensitive plants so if you use it - use it only as directed on label and
test spray to make sure that you are not doing more harm than
