Hi,  anyone out there know of a good alternative / replacement for the old favourite  "Bromophos"


Bromophos . nasty stuff banned since 2003.  Organophosphate pesticide similar to malathion.

I suggest you try the garden centre shelves. Depends on what or who you are trying to kill.


If the problem is cabbage root fly (for which bromophos was usually recommended), the methods now recommended are root collars (which you can make yourself) and/or covering the brassicas with enviromesh, which is what I prefer as it prevents cabbage root fly, cabbage white butterfly and the biggest pest (literally) in my area, bloomin great big fat woodpigeons!
