What strength of Success Ultra to use on new growth of cycads being eaten by moths/caterpillars

Local store has recommended Yates Success Ultra but can't find anything on the label to indicate how much to use or even whether it is the correct Yates product to use.

Answer: Hi Janelle,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

To control caterpillars, such as the young form of the blue cycad butterfly, we recommend applying Yates Success Ultra at the rate of 5ml per litre. This is best applied every 7-14 days depending on infestation.

Be sure to also feed your plant as it is starting to grow. A light feed with Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser is best to help both the soil and the cycad with its new growth.

Kind regards
