Answer: Yates Tomato Dust contains 3 active ingredients that control pests and diseases that specifically attack tomatoes. Sulfur and Copper Oxychloride act as protectant fungicides. Sulfur is also a miticide. Spinosad is an insecticide derived from natural soil bacteria which controls the tomato grub.

Another product that can be used to control certain leaf eating and sucking insects on leafy vegetables is called Nature’s Way Vegetable Dust Derris. Nature’ Way Caterpillar Killer Dipel and Success Naturalyte Insect Control can also be used to control caterpillars including the cabbage white butterfly.
