I have mixed up more Baythroid than I can use up today. Can it be stored in a sealed container and used in a couple of weeks?

How do I dispose of it safely if it can’t be put down drains and sewers?

Feedback on using this product on mites?

No answers


Wyong Creek, NSW, early February 2019. I visit the acreage weekly; first week, green and
luscious (kikuyu mainly and a bit of couch). Next week, brown, brown, brown. Army worms detected.
My question is this.....I propose to use Baythroid this year, but when do I put it on. I am not
talking “afternoon”, but when, one week before I anticipate their arrival, two weeks?
Or, when I see them actually marching?
( I suspect a doozie this year, as there have been the little grey moths in their thousands)
Cheers and thanks,

Hello Cathy,

Unfortunately Yates Baythroid is not registered for use on citrus trees.

Please note the Baythroid product listed on Product Review is one that is no longer being manufactured. We have released a new version Yates Baythroid Advanced Insect Killer for Gardens - See link here - https://pilot.yates.com.au/product/garden-pest-control/yates-baythroid-advanced-insect-killer-for-gardens.

We recommend Yates Natures Way Citrus and Ornamental can be used to treat earwigs on fruit and citrus trees. Please feel free to contact us at www.yates.com.au and our team are more than happy to assist with correct recommendations for your plants.

Thank you


thank you but i did end up getting the baythroid advanced it on the trees and so far it has worked. I think it was grasshoppers not earwigs. the trees are fine the product has not damaged the trees. I also used it on my veggie garden to get rid of aphids which has also worked. Is it safe to continue to use and how often should I respray.



I have applied to my lawn strictly as per instructions. Do I need to re spray / re apply within a set period of time to break the breeding cycle?

Why can’t I use baythroid advanced if it rains? Is it just a case of wasting my time?

1 answer

It needs to get into the soil but not too far, rain washes too far and hence it misses the target zone of the pests
