Hi there,
I have been looking for an alternative to derris dust as I have tutu children and also not enough patience for continually re-applying the already nuisance derris dust. I came across a product called Dipel and was wondering if you stock it or know of anyone that might. I couldn’t find it on the mitre10 and bunnings websites.Also is there any chance of online shopping on your site?
Kind regards

Hi Richard

Thanks for your question. Yes I understand regular application can be difficult. I find popping it on the calender or giving the job to the kids (ours are 11 and 12) works for me.

What may help is companion planting as well to deter the butterflies. White butterfly’s don’t like Nasturtium and brassicas like cabbage, broccoli and kale grow well with it planted beneath.

Your local Palmers may stock Dipel. Another product you may like to try is Neem oil which is an organic solution sold in store. It kills the life cycle of the bugs and I find has better hold than Derris Dust or Yates have a product called Yates Success Naturalyte Insect Control which has a 14 day repeat application; this should give you longer periods between spraying.

We don’t have an online store on our site at present.

Happy gardening
