Protecting Pollinators: Some Steps You Can Take

With proper handling, timing, and application, Zylam® Liquid Systemic Insecticide provides dependable insect control without threatening pollinator sustainability.

You can also help by following these five simple but effective steps:


Always read and follow the label directions. Not only is this the best way to protect pollinators and get the most out of your pesticide investment, it’s also the law.


Avoid spray drift. Know the application site, as well as the weather, and the product droplet size to make sure Zylam® only lands where you want it to land.


Don’t apply Zylam® when plants are blooming, shedding pollen, or producing nectar, as bees and other pollinators will be foraging.


Create an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program for the properties you protect. Focus not only on immediate control, but also long-term prevention of pests through biological, cultural, physical/mechanical, and chemical pest control methods.


Avoid over-spraying and only use Zylam® when and where you need to. You’ll save both time and money—and pollinators too!
