    I believe that Orthro is OK to use, but I am not 100% sure.

    I got the Cleary 3336 from **********.com. In my experience the orthene is kinda expensive and you have to buy enough to spray a whole farm field, not practical for a small CP collection. I've been using sevin on the VFT's to kill aphids with no adverse effects so far.

    Jimscott- yah, the cleary you can get from PFT. I actually don't have it. Back in the day when i used to use the fridge for dormancy i used captain- I guess it worked. Although i did lose some plants i don't think it was to fungus... I was new to CPs back then.
    As to the orthene 75 sp. I got it from a bulk horticulture store here that supplies to companies... and did have to buy alot. I sent some to Tamlin, and gave some to Pingman... And still have a decent amount sitting around... It doesn't go bad that i know of so i'm not worried about have it around. But recently i did see asphate 75sp (asphate is the active ingreedient in the above product) in a Do it yourself pest control store. They had it labled for ants. Stuff stinks pretty bad, so be prepared for that. The can there wasn't too over kill in size, it would last you quite a while and i think it was under 20 bucks.
