Good morning, friends,

My zonal and regal geraniums are being devastated after a wonderfully
robust start. I have sprayed them with Pyrethrin (sp?), and have not
seen much reduction in bud destruction. I have just purchased some BT
which I hope will help me out. How often should I apply it to keep the
nasties down? Or should I stick with Pyrethrin and more frequent

Both those in pots and those in the ground are having their lovely
blooms chewed to ribbons.
