    I have a small area of my millet getting destroyed by bugs.. this millet is only about 20 days old and already headin out because it's going into survival mode. The majority of the millet is fine.. wondering if I could spray it with something to insure the rest doesn't get ate?

    have the same problem every year. army worms and normally my culprit, I spray carbaryl which is the main ingredient in sevin. it last for 14 days I think unless it gets rained on.

    Arctic 3.2 is what I use. Cheap, low use rate, works great. BUT ONLY IF THE POND DOESN'T HAVE FISH.

    its not a pond its more of a wetland. about 30 acres. so this arctic 3.2 wont kill the millet?

    I think army worms are my problem too. i pulled up some yellow nutsedge i have growing and worms all in it. so if i spray carbaryl i'll have to spray every two weeks?
