Dangerous pesticides to avoid

Common Names of Neonicotinoid-Containing Products Used on Ornamental Plants in Nurseries or Sold to Consumers for Home Garden Use

There are approximately 300 insecticide products containing neonicotinoid insecticides as active ingredients used on ornamental plants in either nursery or home garden settings. The specific active ingredients include acetamiprid, clothianidin, dinotefuran, imidacloprid, thiacloprid, and thiamethoxam. Some products contain these chemical names in the product name. Many other products contain neonicotinoids, but do not have the active ingredient in the product name. These product names are included in the table below. Some of these same products go by several different distributor names, such as the Ortho™, Bayer Advanced™ or other brand names. Inspect the label of any insecticide labeled as “systemic” for the presence of neonicotinoid active ingredients. To protect pollinators, avoid using these products.
