Is this effective on cucumber beetles?
George W on May 27, 2019

Does this stop slugs as well?
Samuel L on May 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Captain Jacks does work well. Ofcourse, if it rains washes it away & a new application has to be applied. If your into truly organic, try Diatomaceous Earth. (Fossil Shell Flour). This is totally organic & won't hurt you if eaten by bee's or people or aquatic life. This does dehidrate bugs or slugs & they die. Google it & read up on it. This is what i use on my berry plants, tomatoes, fruit, ect...
