No judgement here, and I type this with nothing but the kindest tone, but as a beekeeper, I urge you to do your research on BATS and its effect on pollinators. imidacloprid is toxic to honeybees as well as other native bees and vital pollinators.

I'm not saying don't use it (I threw mine away), but if you put your plants are outside, please take a look at the potential ramifications of the insecticide.

Another thing to consider is the resistance to imidacloprid that insects such as mites develop, rendering it less effective and breeding 'uber' mites.

Most European countries have banned it as the peer reviewed research shows it's toxicity. Thanks for considering this.
Stepping off of my soap box.
Perception is Unique!
