If you have some Rose Clear lying around you may well be wondering what other plants you can use it on. For example, if you see something munching on your strawberries you may well be wondering can you use rose clear on strawberries? Let’s have a look and find out.
So, Can you use Rose Clear on Strawberries?
No, you should not use rose clear on anything you plan to eat. If you want to use something similar but safe for food then I recommend using bug clear plant and veg. This is by the same company as rose clear but intended for use on fruit and veg.
This comparison table above is directly from the manufacturer. You can clearly see that it says you should not use rose clear on fruit and veg. You can use bug clear ultra or bug clear fruit and veg.
I would recommend going with the product specifically designed for fruit and veg as this will always be your safest bet. The bug clear fruit and veg can even be used and the fruit or veg then eaten the same day!
- Same day, spray and eat
- Contact insecticide for ornamental plants, fruit and vegetables
- 100% natural active ingredient
- Controls greenfly, blackfly, whitefly, scale insects, mealybugs, red spider mites and other mites
- For use both indoors and outdoors all year round
If you have read my other posts then you will know that I like to garden organically so don’t use these bug sprays. If you are like me and are looking for something organic then one thing you can do is try and introduce more predators to your garden or allotment.
If you have a problem with aphids or flies then one predator you can try and introduce is ladybirds. You can get these off amazon believe it or not. They come as larvae and will feed on bugs and aphids before turning into ladybirds. Once fully grown they will continue to munch on those pesky bugs.
These native British Adalia Bipunctata ladybird larvae have a huge appetite for soft -bodied garden pests such as aphids (greenfly and blackfly), spider mite, scale, mealy-bug etc.
