Jess, I bow to people like Dove who are very caring and knowledgeable about the Countryside.....I try to be too though......but I think using Provado is safer than some are saying. Used in moderation and for specific issues it serves a very good purpose. It also enables us to protect our valued plants.
If we don't use the occasional chemical we will have caterpillars eating everything, vine weevils destroying fuschias and slugs and snails eating everything else.
I usually try the organic way first....slugs are always hand picked.....Heucheras dug up and washed amd soil cleared.....peas fleeced for pea moth and carrots for fly.
