• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Had to use seven spray to kill off the @#$%!#$ tobacco horn worms. Now how to get the seven off after pulling the leaves?
Will a quick rinse in water do?
What do you do?

Carbaryl is not commonly used on tobacco. Here is a vegetable pre-harvest interval.

If you used dust or liquid, then hose the plants, and wait a few days to a week before you harvest. If you've already harvested the leaves, they I suppose you'll need to wash them, then hang them out in the sun for a few days.

A safer choice for next year is to either pick off the hornworms by hand, or purchase a BT (Bacillus thuringiensis) spray, which is harmless to all but caterpillars.
